Anybody been to Hy-Vee or Fareway today? Assume panic buying is picking up.
I've been buying TP daily.
Cornholio foretold this
I made my beer run to Hy-Vee yesterday after work. Was informed the Governor's office was asking for a count of how many people can work from home by the end of the day, so figured on the off chance things were moving quickly I would stock up ahead of the crowd.
Anyway, no, it wasn't too busy yet from what I could tell.
I'm not sure if the ole "kill it with whiskey" approach will work but I'm gonna give it a try.
Bought a bottle of Buffalo Trace yesterday.
Costco in WDM was not unusually busy as of 6:00 last night. Tons of bottled water for sale and it appeared to be moving quickly. Most all paper products gone except for napkins and industrial/bathroom paper towels, I think. I overheard someone say more TP would arrive today and they expected it to sell out quickly. Soap and sanitizer sold out, someone else said rice had sold out. As best I can tell, inventory looked good otherwise.
I would guess traffic would be picking up today even without coronavirus. Spring break is coming (kids at home, eating more) and Costco's new coupon book started yesterday.
Not today. I was at the Windsor Heights Hy Vee last night to grab a few things. They were totally sold out of hand sanitizer and running pretty low on TP (which, why?) and disinfectant wipes, but everything else was pretty much normal. I usually make my big grocery run on Friday but I might knock it out tonight just in case. Interesting times.
I'm sitting on a couple bottles of Eagle Rare that may need to be opened.
State high school tournaments still going as planned.
People are scared they are going to have a not stop **** fest I guess?
Ummm I was out there on Saturday morning and it was out of control. I got there just after they opened and it was already packed. I would say it was busier than any time I was there over the holidays.
Bought my first bottle of the stuff over the weekend and I really like it.
As for the coronavirus thing, the toilet paper sellouts are insane. Someone took a picture of the empty TP aisle at Walmart in Newton. This is quite the social experiment.
Curious as to whom they are requesting this from? State employees or business too?
Sorry not DSM but I’m going to Costco out in the CBUS burbs in about 30 minutes. Will report back. There are 3 Costcos within a 10-12 mile radius of our neighborhood for reference so we shall see what it looks like.
Did you catch the part where I said "not unusually busy as of 6:00 last night"? I don't claim to know what Saturday morning was like.
Started my regimen last night
State employees. I know they were already discussing hypothetical plans last week, but sounds like the urgency has picked up.
And here I am training, pounding Cold-eze mixed with Gatorade, green tea, and H2O, eating grapes, raspberries, and lean proteins. We’ll probably both end up the same way
