I went to our local Publix here in Florida this Monday and everything but paper products was on the shelves. It was about 10 am. It looked like they just restocked. Plenty of meat, chicken and fish. Very unlike the last time I went. I think it would be difficult to limit fresh meat and chicken and fish because how would they know the size of your family. They maybe should limit milk and eggs and butter though because you can always make a meal out of that. Some cleaning products were limited and there were signs on all the shelves and produce department with a polite reminder to take only what you need and think of others. Nope, it’s just like the hurricane mentality here….deplete all the batteries and flashlights and stock your freezer so you can be ready when the power goes out and you have no generator but you do have pounds of spoiled food.
Yes people are still hoarding because they think the apocalypse is coming. I know people are cleaning more but empty shelves of tissues and TP.?
And Publix is saying there will be no refunds to anyone because of the overbuying. Exchanges are okay. Good for them.
So when we should be staying home ,we have to go out to the store more often to see if they have restocked and then you have no choice but to stock up yourself.
