Today I went to Wal-Mart again for a couple things. TP was sold out as expected but so was the store brand Ibuprofen (Equate). ALL of it. Advil was mostly sold out too except the larger quantities that are like $15-$20 per bottle.

Yes the Walmart here in *&^%$#@ is wiped out of toilet paper as well.
And so it begins.

Color me massively skeptical here. I highly doubt people were discussing "stocking up for the virus", because it being the first of the month, is generally when things like SSI come in for some, and EBT funds replenish for the month for people using the program. Having BTDT with EBT ourselves many years ago, and knowing when NOT to try to shop with families and old folks trying to beat each other to the punch, there's your source for the low stock in the dairy isle.

If there in not another Walmart for 100 miles then anyone who lives within 100 miles is going to that Walmart.

This is also an excellent point (I misread it as ten miles, not one hundred) If there's THAT much distance between anything for people, hello low stock in stores.

Yo Nayah,
I'm just curious, how well stocked are the grocery stores near you.
And, if you happened to venture out to a grocery store, are any of the conversations around you involving CoVID-19?
Also, what color do you want to be colored now?

This is just panic buying. The real food shortages are still to come.

posted on Mar, 22 2020 @ 03:44 PM
Its not I promise its not, what you are seeing is people buying faster than truckers can get the goods there, we are still a ways out from shortages in the sense that there is nothing to buy, right now its demand is exceeding the supply chains ability to keep up.

If people would calm down things would even up...

Local Publix manger told me they are getting their normal orders like clockwork and he has heard nothing about supply issues at the ware house, its the excessive buying that is causing the problems as they can only get a portion of the amounts over their normal order.

The only reason stores are running out of stuff is piss poor store management.

As soon as it was evident things were being hoarded stores should have immediately imposed limits.

Denmark killed hoarding of sanitizer with creative pricing -

1 bottle for 4.09

2 bottles for 95.00

Problem solved.

People bought up all the crap but left plenty.

Rubbing alcohol is out but surgical / skin and wound wash is plentiful and its active ingredient is effective against Covid 19. They just dont read things.

Same with other stuff. You just have to think about purpose and be open to alternatives.

No water? Look for tap connecting water filters. Hardware section or around it. Or look where camping gear is sold and just modify something. Or make one , then fill a properly treated container once a week. We still have power and so running water will still flow.

This one is crazy but pans out sometimes. Look through your storage units. Especially if you moved or have one for many years. People pay off for being hoarders in situations like this.

The amount of first aid and emergency supplies locked away in storage units is absurd. Also in utility trucks and places where OSHA standards are followed there is a small hoard of medical supplies and nifty Equipment.

Even a breathing mask. Be resourceful. I found an old fine particulates mask some painter or sheetrock installation crew left behind a few months ago. I kept it around and now its useful. I cleaned it up and replaced the ruined filter cartridges with a modified direct filtration system I made out of layers of cigarette filters. It works well probably down to 3 - 1 microns (maybe even smaller) though I have no means of testing it or desire to do so. It looks cool too. Lol

Anything thats a fixable problem can be solved by a resourceful eye before its an issue, in most cases.

Be safe and hold it down.

Once workers start striking (and its begun) we will see a breakdown of all services. The next two weeks are going to be interesting for all of us.

Oddly, no.
The closest one to me - a Neighborhood Market Walmart - has always sucked at stocking pretty much everything. This has been true since it first opened a few years ago.
Example: the day after the store opened it sold out of milk and didn't get it restocked for over a week. And this wasn't a teething issue for a new store. No, it would eventually prove to be standard operations.
In spite of this, I've shopped there for groceries almost exclusively due to its very close proximity. I know, lazy.
I'd finally just accepted that this level of shoddiness would remain permanently unchanged and adjusted accordingly.
Until COVID-19.
Now, it STAYS well stocked on everything, and in timely fashion too.
Sure, I've seen panic runs recently wipe out bread for instance but, the very next day the bread shelves are completely full. Same holds true throughout a store that once epitomized incompetence.
Make of that what you will.

The only thing our suburban Chicago Walmart was missing today was Lysol and other disinfectants.

every one gets to Walmart sees empty shelves then panics and fills carts full .
Heck it effected me as well so now i have a month and half supply of food .
Been back in forth 2 times a week they stock over night next morning they get bought back out .
Truckers are getting special help now road side stands so they can get food even police escort to help them find said stands .
all food plants going 110 % so unless this thing blows up to 30 million being sick at once the shelvs will refill once people run out of room for even more food .
Problem is I know this fact ad still got worried enough to a buy 1.5 month supplys b pull most of my cash out of the bank .
well hopefully this virus can be slowed hopefully a vacine can be made .
hopefully the Governments of the world will put enough money into the lower ( poor ) and Business so when its over we dont have the 32 % unemployment they predict .
If al this fails and the virus spreads full bore a billion will be sick at once ( most people only worry about counting the dead but its the sick that matter .
America with 30 million sick at once trucking grinds to a halt people who pick and prosses the food grind to a halt .
every one on ats loves saying it will be only 100,000 1 million 2 million heck 9 million dead world wide so what .
after all 7.4 billion a drop but a billion sick means teh world grinds to a halt .
this thing is keept at a low lv dont worry teh shelves will be restocked and every one can make lazy boys out of teh tolit paper they bought lol
