In addition to toilet paper being gone from shelves...
Odd cleaning supplies like Soft Scrub and even dish detergent has been scarce in the few stores I shop. I found it, but in a 3rd store.
My local Ikea won't take any online orders for pickup or delivery - says they're at capacity. I guess everyone is building home offices!
Last night I watched this. She's sharing some wisdom here. When Patara said to pay attention to what comes back on the shelves, I sat up and took notice. Buy TWO of those items.
Today I was notified that Kroger will not be able to put milk in my pickup order. I ordered whole milk.
Yesterday my client wanted 2% at CVS. I had to get her a brand she's not really fond of because the Mayfield brand of 2% was not available. There wasn't much left of the Mayfield stuff to begin with.
Is there a milk supply shortage we don't know about? I know dairy farmers are dumping milk. Are we now feeling the hit from that?
(I already get meat, eggs and produce from local farmers. Guess I'll need to start scouting for local milk as well, if I can find it.)
Things have evened out here for the most part. There are still bare spots on shelves but no one is panic buying.
At the height of this, the stores quit advertising and having sales. They're competing with each other again.
From my perspective, it's pretty much normal, though I could not find a "chunk" of feta cheese of any brand, in three stores. Crumbled, yes.
It still isn't great where I live. I got a couple of tins of tuna fish I like, but they're out of everything that isn't chunk lite tuna. They have Tonno in olive oil. It isn't the canned tuna I like. Apparently, no one else likes it either because its been sitting there on the shelf for weeks.
I still can't find things like Bounty paper towels. I have to go to three stores to maybe get lucky. Still no Lysol wipes.
