COVID-19 Grocery shopping

Ohio update

1y ago

I finally tried to go to one of our bigger stores on Monday March 23rd after I got off of work. There are a lot of hit and miss with items. Plenty of fresh produce and meat so that was a definite bonus. Still no toilet paper but there was evidence to show that they did recently have some though. Plenty of buns but not much bread, not many options for any kind of beans, ramen levels are low but there was some, still no Spam either.

Update on Ohio

Today is Wednesday March 25th, currently there are 704 confirmed cases and 10 deaths. The stay at home order went into effect on Monday at 11:59 pm. At that point I still had to attend work as they considered the trucking industry essential. The factory I work at does not employ very many people at this time due to the economy. We have previously already laid people off in hopes of maintaining hours. When I got to work Tuesday I found out that PACCAR Inc had shutdown all plants until April 6th, due to the economy and the effect the coronavirus has had. From my understanding MACK trucks had already been on a shutdown due to economy and how hard their area was hit by coronavirus. So as of Tuesday a majority of my plant has been temporarily laid off until April 6th. I am now safely at home with my husband waiting out the coronavirus until then.

  • I hear it’s the same in Quebec City, not gone out for a while. I was not diagnosed with the coronavirus, but I’ve been under the weather for some time now. I’m avoiding the shops. Delivery is my new best friend, sadly 😢

  • I went out yesterday to a grocery store that's hidden in an abandoned shopping plaza. It's open and pretty nice, not too many people know it's there. They had everything, even TP (just those ultra cheap single rolls). I've been home off work for a week now after I refused to travel to work at another location (CEO said don't travel to other locations but regional management making people travel). Some sketchy stuff happening at the company I work for. I'm at home playing it safe.

    • Glad to hear that you are safe. If it wasn't for the fact I needed a variety of canned cat food I would have went to the small grocery. I don't need toilet paper yet but I would like to maintain what we do have. Keep safe!

  • I actually managed to find some tissue rolls at Coles today. The one item per transaction thing might be working
