It’s been on the news here in South FL. Not a mask to be found. Cleaning wipes and hand sanitizer shelves empty. I’ve seen that first hand. I’m going to try to get another box of disposable gloves later. I brought anti-viral tissues to work today for the random people I see all day!

Most big box stores have a neat little trick called "STRETCHING"....Making shelves look full by facing two rows forward and taking one product and filling many holes.

Things look normal but are they?

Re: Panic Buying In the US Has Begun!
I work in a grocery store in middle of america, big city. Panic buying has not happened. Although with a few exceptions I have seen no prepping. People are talking about it though and it seems as if people are curious about what grocery store workers think about the coronavirus. I have probably been asked by at least 20 strangers what I think about it, unprompted! People have been waking up to what this thing is.
 Quoting: WW3NuclearApocalypse


Same here, most here are fine, reasonably well stocked, willing to share and unafraid of this causing anything life threatening before next winter.

Lot of talk about the economic hardship coming. People I know are starting to carry more on a daily basis and rewire their brains for what is being perceived as a hard time coming late this year and going forward.

I went to two grocery stores today and bought about $50 in food/supplies each time. No panic, no sign of hording/stocking. Tons of people out but everyone seems calm and reasonable.

I know a lot of people with cc licenses. They seem to be "practicing" daily carry more. At a recent meeting for coffee, one friend that normally pocket carries was showing off his underarm holster, another was showing off his new belt attached conceal, and a.third was talking about his briefcase carry he just started carrying.

I know I have been carrying more in the car or when out walking. (My Leatherman of course, the guns were lost when the boat sank).

38k+ population town in Middle Tennessee. Went to the CVS today for miscellaneous things, and a man in his 60s walked up to the cashier and asked if they had any masks. She replied no. Then he wanted to know where the rubbing alcohol was and came back with two bottles.

I asked her how long they had been out of masks. She said since last week. I also asked her if she had had a lot of people asking for them. She said yes. Kind of weird for our town. I guess people are paying attention. Never would have occurred to me to go to a drugstore for masks.

Fortunately because of the UK'S no deal Brexit planning in late 2018 there is ample supplies in this country and an emergence of the UK farming industry.

Tough luck on other countries.

Least you can't buy things like face masks with food stamps. They'll just have to give up their crack and booze money to buy some, if they can find them. Haven't seen them at my local walmart for weeks.

Saw a guy at walmart with a whole cart full of canned goods. Like literally filled to the top. Either a prepper or someone got their food stamp moneys.

Central Maryland, The local health food store, which is very big and nice for a health food store, the cashier said he hadn't really noticed anyone stocking up, the regular grocery store was stocked but there were some holes where some bleach and hand wipes were,that item was gone but there were other brands well stocked, I stopped looking for hand sanitizer so can't report on that.
I've gotten a lot of red for telling the truth and being right. Just sayin'

Husband just got home with the last of the supplies. No bleach in Walmart though. He went back out to get it at the grocery store.

Wow, that was right on the edge. I thought we had another week before panic buying started.

Re: Panic Buying In the US Has Begun!
Two days ago I watched the last mask get purchased after checking all normal areas, it was in the very back of Walmart with landscaping, at Hot Springs AR.

I also noticed the difference in how they had set up the store with canned food on end caps.
It seemed like everyone stocking up was giving off a weird vibe, like they were stealth panic buying.

I thought then this is about to go bad in a hurry. So glad I started long ago.
