Cloves, eh? Powdered, or whole?

Either way, it's good to know people will survive the severe cold virus apocalypse with the fixings for pies, cloved up hams, and spiced wines and boozes.

Edit: Because people on here take things way too literally, I'm of course being tongue-in-cheek and know you typo'd gloves.

Mocking people, who are buying things in the store he works at?? I wouldn't be back. ...and I'd make sure the manager knew why, too.

As for the actual topic...

Wal-mart in Ft. Payne, Alabama is in good shape. I suspect that the one 40 miles away (or so) in Scottsboro is in good shape, too. I may drive over there tomorrow just to see... Road Trip!!! Sad, isn't it?

The Walmart I go to are goofy. The soup isles they use to take the cans out of the box now they cut the bottoms half way. So now you have turn every can to try and find what you're looking for. As being a normal customer I can tell that they're sales gone down because of that. I guess people don't want to be bothered. I probably spend 20 minutes or so just on that isle trying to find what I want it's crazy, but now I can get the soup I want. I guess it's a worthy sacrifice. The pain the pain! LOL.

Sad that this is happening, yes.
But a road trip? I usually enjoy those.
Safe travels.

True that. Your's isn't the only one that does that now.

Fortunately, many grocery stores still put the cans on the shelf as they should...which is why, given a choice, I shop there.

But, as I get off work at 3 AM, and in the South that means nothing, as in very few, things at all are open, much less grocery stores...I do some shopping at Wal-mart...

Beggers can't be choosers, and all that rot...

But it seems that there hasn't, as yet, been much in the way of deliveries being effected yet. Yet. I fear that that will change as the fear mongering grows more intense.

Media. Politicians. Never let a good semi-crisis go to waste when you can make it a possible E.L.E.

SF Bay area

Some Costco's were basically wiped out of everything food and anything NOT electronic

Most stores low on supplies like propane, and other goods

Good luck finding ammo etc


That being said, we have been and always be prepared so no panic buying in our house. Im a little unnerved about how unprepared our neighbors are though

Speaking of soup...I went to Wal-mart today and I was looking for just that, soup. Chicken noodle to be precise. There wasn't a single can. There was cream of (insert whatever) all types but no freakin chicken noodle. I ended up finding those microwave ones with the red tops that have holes in them. Other than that, the shelves were stocked ok. There were a TON of annoying people everywhere tho, especially people in the motorized carts taking up half the isles. It was busier than what I normally see on a Tuesday afternoon. I worked at that store for 8 years, so I have a pretty good sense of how busy it is on average. I generally can't stand being there for more than 10 minutes anyway.

A buddy of mine was at the COSTCO on Coors Ave in Albuquerque. He said that there were long lines, and that rationing of toilet paper had begun.

This is turning into a bad dystopian movie.
One can only wonder what these fearful
people are going to do when their
stockpile runs dry.

"Dad, why are we preppers?"

"Well son, because my Dad was also a
prepper"

"Dad, grandpa is dead, and nothing ever happened
to justify all his efforts".

"Son, don't argue with me, just make sure you
get everything on your list when you get to Walmart.

"Yes Dad"

I've explained to my children why we should be prepared.

Besides, if you forgot to get toilet paper at the store, you can just go get a roll out of the stock pile. Then pick up another pack next time you go.

My wife usually picks through the food if she forgets something so it gets cycled through.

It's not about being fearful, besides I believe that the governments and rich folk have doomsday shelters and supplies. It's only funny and laughable if you are a regular joe.

Nah, I'm good. I got the soy sauce for the rice today.

Hi, here near Atlanta, my Costco was crazy Sunday, no carts outside, where they usually are, but lots of empty carts inside store. We got nothing we went in for. No lysol no disinfective wipes. People were buying lots of Toilet paper. but other than those things all else was well stocked.

People are posting g on FB about empty racks of toilet paper, water, and hand sanitizer.

This is in the area of a town of about 8,000 people. There are many towns with more people reporting lower shelf supply.

The word is getting out.

the neighborhood Walmart Grocery (the 38 ave north store #02870) 1 of 2 in myrtle beach, had the buffet style freezers all emptied out for some reason, mostly 3 lb bags of breaded chicken processed meats, the other 16' aisle of frozen turkey, burgers and hens was stocked 90% full

the employees were quick to sanitize the credit-card stations at each check-out register

no COVID cases reported in all of SC, including the tourist beaches/golf courses here in Horry county

I would think that Charleston harbor and inland a bit at the Savannah nuke site would be ultra sensitive/strategic areas to have rigid bio-hazard controls in place...add Paris Island to that ground-zero target listing

so far all's well here in dixie

Northern California Costco: We are Costco addicts and know the ebbs and flows and our local one is pretty wiped out





Those racks are always packed to the rafters. The bottom shelves are full but the upper one are empty. In addition the lower racks now have stuff spread out like adult diapers etc that normally had other stuff

Went out to the grocery today; I was surprised to see so many people out and about in town in the middle of a work day.

The grocery had a lot of people too; but by the looks of it they were all doing their normal shopping... they all had light to normal sized loads in their carts and none had more than a reasonable number of a single item (no one had a tun of TP or anything).

Some shelves did appear less dense then they useless look. Nothing completely out of stock, but it looked as if the selves had not yet been "faced" (the practice of pulling stock forward on shelves to make it look neat and uniform)

The grocery also had pallets of water, TP, and cleaning products in the middle of some aisles that they don't normally do.

They also had signs up that listed a few products (bleach, hand soap, disinfectant spray, sanitizing wipes) that they would only sell 4 of per customer because of low supply.

My feeling was that people where out doing their normal shopping earlier than normal; not necessarily afraid of the virus, but more afraid of not being able to buy something they normally need because they saw reports of empty stores on the news. Because a larger than normal crowd had been coming through, the store didn't have time to "face" ... making it appear as if some products where running out. They where also taking advantage of the situation by putting out extra water and ect pallets hoping people would see them and impulse buy.
