This pic is from a Costco. Stupid people. I get buying enough to be comfortable but you can't eat toilet paper.
My local NoFrills had tonnes of toilet paper, this whole panic buying nonsense is getting weary. I had no problems at all buying everything I needed today food and medicine wise, but then I wasn't looking for N95 masks either. A decent cold syrup, some other supplies and lots of canned goods.
I went to NoFrills and Shoppers and both were stocked just fine. I didn't hear a single cough from anyone at NoFrills so at least if people are sick they've got the decency to stay home or shop during quieter times. At Shoppers the two clerks were talking about how someone was making and selling masks online, great way to profit off the panic I guess.
So yeah, no panicking, everyone doing their normal shopping. I saw one person (out of 29) with 4 cases of water but that's probably a normal purchase around here. I bought one case myself, not because of COVID-19 but rather because my coffee maker likes bottled water for some reason.
If you go grocery shopping I recommend buying for 3 weeks, lots of canned goods, oats, lots of non-perishables. It's a good time to skip the sweets and go with practical foods instead. Grab a bottle or two of cold medicine just in case, at least 1 per person in your household. And that's about it.
There is one good thing to be said about all of these idiots gutting toilet paper supplies, you leave lots of food and medicine for the rest of us behind (no pun intended).
Be a smart shopper and you'll do just fine, but seriously, cases of toilet paper? It's not "that" kind of virus folks.
