15. A couple of grocery stores in NH

Gone or mostly gone: canned veggies and beans, frozen veggies, pasta, onions (huh?), paper products.

Still gone: bleach, wipes

Low: eggs, yogurt, water, chicken

Okay: produce, pharmacy stuff

Maybe they’re getting deliveries over night, but I don’t usually shop until afternoon.

That said, the store I went to today wasn’t crowded and people were not behaving crazy of buying ridiculous quantities.

4. We made our own

 

Out of cabbage, carrots, onions, celery, and chicken broth mix. Stored in a big bowl in the frig and ladle out portions as we consume. We then added canned corn and canned tomatoes. This is the second batch we made, it just turns out our timing was spot on.

16. I prefer homade soup.

My go to homemade soups are limited, but that's ok. I just need to learn how to make a better loaf of bread. My sister is really good at bread, but I need more practice.

8. I went to 6 stores today to get my regular weekly shopping done

They have reduced the hours and and the shelves were bare. I wanted to buy a coaster for my soda stream and bed bath amd beyond is closed until April 7th. The mall was closed and even the Ross in closed next to Trader Joe’s. It was so crazy. But I heard from several workers yesterday was really crazy crowed. Today it was like a break for them and no lines and plenty of fresh produce.

10. Hubby went to Fry's in AZ last week..same thing, no soup or TP or PT...

We are maintaining..I bought TP and PT weeks ago..not a stock up..just good pricing..whole chickens on sale..5 in freezer, and one, stuffed, in the oven right now...

He is finishing a paint job as I speak..just had a client cancel for next week..so tighten up....I am so looking forward to him taking time off..he went through a tough year last year with radiation for prostate cancer..I haven't said much about it here..his PSA was at 24 when he started, now down to PSA 12..am grateful to have had wonderful doctors, and our healthcare has held up against the huge medical expense....

He has a great constitution, and good attitude (most of the time )..but I don't blame him for what he has been through..he is wearing a mask and gloves when he goes out to grocery store....

Be well all, we will get through this together..we all have our own situations to deal with..am grateful for DU...

11. The Bay Area has had panic-buying/stocking-up for quarantine/isolation going on for a while,

like a couple weeks or maybe 3. There have been times when the store shelves were pretty cleared out, but many of the stores were making heroic re-stocking efforts and keeping the appearance of scarcity at bay.

But there have also been articles in the major newspapers (one this morning in the San Jose Mercury News, specifically) which have spokespeople from the grocery retailers' association (I forget the name or acronym of the organization exactly) which basically say "It's fine. Our supply lines are fine. Our sources are fine. We just can't match the pace of the panic-buying in this brief moment. Once the panic-buying slows down we'll catch up and all the stores will be fully-stocked again." There might be exceptions like hand sanitizers or masks whose usage actually rises massively, but for things with constant usage like food and toilet paper it is probably correct.

13. In the town near me

the freight comes in today, I may make a just before closing run to see if they have restocked the pasta. Otherwise I'm good.

We have a 40-60% trophy home situation here and many of those trophy home peeps showed up mid week and wiped out the two stores. Hopefully that won't happen this week. And when those folks who have $$ will be filling up the hospital so that we locals will be left out, as usual.

14. Have a little knowledge

 

as to what is happening on the Wholesale Supply chain. Wholesale Grocer's generally go into sell down mode as well as Inventory mode after Thanks Giving which is the peak for Retail Grocer's.

This time of year is considered the Slack time,normal sales thru Retail Stores tend to be sluggish at best and as a Canned Goods Buyer,I would order my early fall Retail Deliveries at this time of year with Truckloads and Carloads arriving in early to mid August. On some items,you book your orders with the knowledge it might take up to four or fives months before delivery.

So with this massive crunch buying,the Wholesale Houses are being emptied at a accelerated rate. Every major Retailer has adopted a JIT system and we are seeing what happens when Inventories are depleted. Dare say,there will be some Grocery Items you will not see until September or October.
