Grocery Store?

I have not been to the grocery store for a couple of months, so imagine my surprise when I went the other day for a few things and most of the shelves were pretty empty. Not just the shelves, but the meat and dairy cases were as well. Lots of empty space! I wanted to get some pork chops because we are out of pork chops and I just had a hankering for some. The only pork left in the meat case was just a few pork loin roasts and Italian sausage. I have never seen this before. I even asked and they said they did not have any in the back either. This is a large grocery chain, not a mom and pop, so I would not expect to have seen this. Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just me? The only time I see shelves like this is when there is really bad weather coming and we don't have any coming our way.I guess we will wait until the hog is butchered for those pork chops. Blessings from the farm.

Our store is a statewide chain and beyond a reduction in brands (they're going thru a reorganizational bankruptcy) I haven't seen empty shelves. Seems like you've mentioned grocery stores going out of business in your area-seems strange to me. You didn't ask why there was so little food in the store?

I should have asked what was going on and where the food was, but I didn't. I was on a time crunch and simply observed. Blessings, Kat

The grocery stores aren't "stores" anymore. They sell what they have delivered and have no real storage "in the back".

Most don't know that.
