Buy powdered milk.
Of going to the Comm Ave Shaw's on the way home today for butter. All the produce, chips, and yogurt were picked bare, and there were lines 8 deep at every register.
Based on the contents of people's baskets (chips, ice cream, burrito wraps, soda), I think everyone in the store planned on riding out the storm by smoking a bowl.
Hearing that Market Basket in Chealsa was closed this afternoon, folks wer fighting in the store and CPD had to be called in...
"A more traditional scene at the East Boston Stop & Shop"
There is no East Boston Stop & Shop.
Gotta get the bread and milk!
I was at Roche tonight to pick up some for my wife. Never would have guessed they could sell out of that stuff.
I went to Roche Bros in Burlington last night. No lines, fully stocked shelves. I got everything I wanted, plus a bunch of stuff I didn't know I wanted. The milk, bread, and eggs were all stocked as was the water aisle. I figured market basket would be where the hysteria was so popped over there since it never seems busy.
This type of hysteria doesnt seem to exist in central jersey.
Were only supposed to get 6-12 inches, but the supermarket I visited at 11pm tonight looked as stocked as always.
And Sandy? I took a picture the day before Sandy hit.....stocked to the brims.
That's because nobody lives in central Jersey.
The Back Bay Trader Joe's was out of Artisan Bread last night, but not regular bread.
Hannaford's in Quincy was out of tomatoes last night as well as Honey Nut Cheerios, Pancake Mix, Freschetta pizza, Charmin.......
You know it's getting real when people are willing to shop at Shaw's and not mind being gouged...
I walked about before the real storm and included a swing to the Truman Parkway S&S. My young men had informed me they were out of dandruff shampoo. Hey, if college guys are grooming, I'll play.
A very elderly couple was leaving the store with a pretty full cart. She looked me in the eye and actually cackled. With a big grin, she said, "I left you SOME food."
All fun and funny until the blizzard, eh?
Next door, Lenk's booze had 11-inch letters, black on yellow, LET IT SNOW! It's probably great for biz, eh?
