Thread Name: BS: New rules for Grocery shopping
Subject: RE: BS: New rules for Grocery shopping
In Stratford, Ontario, Zehr's supermarket has a sign on the front door saying that the store is reserved from nine o'clock to eleven for seniors and others in the "most at risk" group.

At half past noon, the baking section was innocent of all the most basic staple ingredients -- flour of all kinds (even rye), yeast, baking powder and sugar. Suddenly, we have all become baking fools, prepared to dig a hole and pull it in after ourselves. Likewise, the beans and pulses are gone, the oatmeal, the canned tomatoes and most of the pasta.

Signs taped to the shelves indicated that Zehr's doesn't allow hoarding.

The cereal section still looked robust, and the selection of sweeties. Dairy products were fully stocked, also the meat section and eggs. Fruit looked kinda thin, except apples, and pickings weren't good among the veg.

Toilet paper, kleenex and kitchen roll had been restocked. The beer aisle looked fine.
