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.
