Re: Shopping today.

No on-line slots at any supermarkets here today. I'll try after midnight as I heard they add them on then. I wanted to get one for 3weeks time when I should run out of groceries.
Our local garage has most things but I'm not risking being near people! I've managed to stay virus free so far, no point in tempting fate.

Re: Shopping today.

Our local Boots the chemist had an attempted burglary overnight on Mon/Tues.
Probably after some Paracetamol!

Re: Shopping today.

I hope I'm wrong but, all these shops that are closed are going to be targets for thieves and looters. It's only a matter of time I think, greedy people or those needing money for whatever reason, something to sell.

Good News:

Coronavirus: Off-licences added to list of 'essential' retailers

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52033260

Off-licences have been added to the government's list of essential UK retailers allowed to stay open during the coronavirus pandemic.

The list was updated on Wednesday amid increasing reports supermarkets are selling out of some beers and wines.

De-criminalise weed. Quite apart from being smoked it's a great addition to cooking! Gives an entirely new meaning to hash browns and an added kick to fudge brownies.

Re: Shopping today.

My local supermarkets are all getting better stocked and better organised - but they are restricting customer numbers to reduce proximity.

Some goods, but not beer, are still rationed and paracetamol is unobtainable.

Re: Shopping today.

Still no on-line slots for any supermarkets.
Is this hoarding on-line now?
Folk could be ordering maximum amounts from all stores.

Re: Shopping today.

Outside our Sainsbury Local this morning, the manager told the people waiting outside in a queue (a couple of metres apart) he was sorry but there was a bit of congestion in the store (we knew this having just come out). "That's OK, mate", said this scruffy looking great mountain of a guy, "We understand. We know you're doing your best for us."
