Empty paper-towel and toilet-paper shelves at Dedham Stop and Shop

This was the paper towel/toilet paper aisle at the Dedham Stop &;amp; Shop late this afternoon. Maybe it was just one of those things, or are people stocking up on the paper goods again?

They did have a pallet of six-month packages of Scott paper towels at the other end, along with a pallet of one of paper towels under one of those foreign brand names you'd never heard of before, oh, April 2020: Read more.

No ketchup

Every day, it seems like people look at the empty toilet-paper and chicken shelves at the Dedham Stop & Shop and go "Oh, no, what can I buy instead?!?" Today, the store was completely out of ketchup. Who knew ketchup was going to be in such high demand during an apocalypse?

The store was also completely out of frozen pizzas, except a few flatbread pizzas and "pizza" made out of cauliflower, which pretty much proves nobody wants that stuff.
