This is more for FYI or keep your eyes open........
I went to the local grocery on a whim to make some cheesy goodness for the office tomorrow. It was about eight pm, and like most men, straight to the
cheese isle on a mission. I rounded the corner and the shelves were bare.....and i don't mean out of the brand you want, I mean absolutely bare. I
was a bit taken aback, but then thought, the truck just hasn't come in yet. I started looking further, and the place was bare, looks like it hadn't
been stocked in over two weeks. Entire sections, just empty, I didn't see any signs that there was a special that would have cleaned them out. It
looked like a grocery after someone whispers snow in texas.
Okay, so not to get my panties in a bunch, i get some of what i was after (oh, and the produce looked straight off the truck, and fully stocked) and
go to the cashier. I ask her, 'what's up, did the truck not show up.'.....she just looks at me, shakes her head, and says, 'i really don't know,
we aren't getting resupplied'. Okay, now one more side note, I live downtown phoenix, this is a mid-sized mexican grocery store (largest at a
convenient distance without driving to a big box). I go there regularly and never noticed anything close to this.
My curiosity, because this is a lower income establishment, are the supply lines 'drying' up...little by little, to deplete the pantry of those that
would need it most? Again, this isn't anything more than a raised eyebrow, especially when the cashier couldn't give me a solid reason why the
shelves were bare. Has anyone else noticed any strange lack of product in the groceries?
