I talked to a restaurant owner at Sam's last week and he said Frito-Lay is on strike. I couldn't find the white corn tortilla chips I usually get either.The Admiral reports that Sam's, Hyvee, and Fareway in Sioux City were all completely out of all types of tostitos. Not alarming, but odd.
Yep. Later, I'm going to show a neighbor how to cut down and hem some of the pants and shirts that were passed on to her young son from the mom of a cousin. That will also save her a great deal of money this fall.Back to school clothes appear to be in short supply.
I have some insight into this: Frito Lay in Topeka was/is on strike. A number of products are simply unavailable. Should be somewhat back to normal soon as the strikers did reach an agreement.The Admiral reports that Sam's, Hyvee, and Fareway in Sioux City were all completely out of all types of tostitos.

just wait until everything gets back to normalThe DW grabbed a rotisserie chicken for supper. They’re sold by the piece and not weight. It appeared to be a Cornish hen. Weighed in at 33 oz with the bag and juices! The feed store shocked me with scratch grain up to an astounding 14.74. Noticed in one of the grocery ads the wishbone salad dressing is now 15 and not 16 ozs. The incredible shrinking package is rolling!
This is going on with buns and bread in S. CA too. I even contacted the bakery whose bread I buy. Customer service said it was a delivery problem whatever that means. We like the whole wheat buns too.Hubby decided tonight he wanted hot dogs for supper and we were out.
So......off to Ingles I go, to get the dogs and buns (whole-wheat, b/c he's a health nut. HOT DOGS + whole wheat bread for health? Yeah, I know, I know....)
Simple, right? The great American dinner.
Went to Ingles. Found the hot dogs ok (on sale, & plenty) --
but in the bread aisle---NOT ONE SINGLE BAG of whole-wheat hot dog (or hamburger) buns.
Lots of potato buns, white buns---no whole wheat to be had.
Left and went to Publix.
Again--plenty of white and potato and even some more exotic kinds---but plain old whole wheat? Whistling Dixie....
Finally found ONE bag of "multigrain" hot dog buns, one bag of "all natural / no high fructose corn syrup" hot dog buns, and ONE bag of hamburger buns.
Very very weird..............
And LOTS AND LOTS of GAPS on other shelves. I particularly noticed even bottled WATER seemed scarce....
I'm expecting sky high hay prices, I and everyone else going to be dumping cows on tbe market and getting low dollar.
Yet, at the grocery store it'll be top dollar.
Yup..that would be right. I checked the market here the other day (for grins..thankfully, I don't need any hay..grow my own).I was listening to the Governor of North Dakota on talk radio out of Fargo 3 or 4 days ago, addressing the price of hay by the ton, due to the drought there. He said it was up around $100 per ton, and a rancher called in to say that the Gov was incredibly out of touch (go figure), and that hay was currently selling for close to $200 per ton. He said that some sellers had tested the waters asking for close to $300 per ton, which to his knowledge nobody was actually paying, yet.
Regarding all the refrigerate units up front Alot of store chains are putting them there for the drive up and deliver folks like Door dash. The store employee shops for you and then puts the items in a bin in the cooler waiting for the pickup person.Wish I'd brought my phone with me to Hannafords this morning. First off, they've been doing some remodeling or something at the front of this store near the office entrance. I thought they were moving the customer service desk/checkout over there. I go in this morning and there is a wall, a bank, of high end commercial refrigerators or freezers. Doors are facing the public. This is right inside the entrance 20 feet. Everyone will walk by it who uses that entrance. Funny thing is, these are like restaurant or commercial units. There is no glass, no way to see what is in each. Looks like there was 6-8 of them. No idea what this is for. There still looks to be space behind that is open. That space is next to the HABA and pharmacy area. Didn't think to ask as my vehicle was making funny noises on the way there and that was on my mind.
Anyway, still short in the store brand common products. Bought the last two whole milk cottage on the shelf. Plenty of flavored ones and some national brand. The plain stuff is low. Store brand whole milk, furthest date out was Aug 9.
Store brand premium paper towels finally came down to pre-scamdemicoup prices but appear to be less per package.
Biggest most noticeable hole. Sports drinks. Literally 25% of an aisle is near empty. Didn't look at what was available because I don't drink the stuff.
Coffee, that area is shrinking. Still none of my flavor in the store brand premium. Bought the last two bags of the regional organic.
Noticed some stuff that seemed out of place for this store or our area. But didn't investigate. I think they're trying to look like they have products. Maybe they're trying to set up relations with other suppliers?
Nothing about masking and no one looked at me funny.
Good thinking. There were a few signs about using Instacart on the way in the store that don't recall seeing before.Regarding all the refrigerate units up front Alot of store chains are putting them there for the drive up and deliver folks like Door dash.

That what might be those you saw
$250 - $300 a ton is normal price here for GOOD hay --- I don't feed garbageI was listening to the Governor of North Dakota on talk radio out of Fargo last week, addressing the price of hay by the ton, due to the drought there.

Hay prices greatly depend on your area of the country.$250 - $300 a ton is normal price here for GOOD hay --- I don't feed garbage
been paying it for years
Because of the fact that Memphis is sitting on top of one of the nation’s largest supply hubs, we are among the last to see shortages of most things.Mid-South WM had 8 -10 aisles of school supplies this morning. They have moved all the shelves so that the aisles are wider. I don't know what would normally go in that area. They don't have many toys and the garden center is almost completely empty.
Dh's soft drinks have gone up from $4.29 to $6.00 for a 12 pack in less than 6 weeks.
They didn't have any of the brand name nasal spray that dh uses and the OTC medicines were really picked over.
