I needed some stuff only Morrisons sells, I can report there were no queues, and minimal empty shelves. 

The pasta isle is ALWAYS hammered, completely empty.

Actually it's many other people's issue as well. Many autistic people cannot deal with queues and, especially for those who are socially isolated, and they are not able to buy food. This will worsen as the govt increase restrictions on how long a person can be outdoors for. Yesterday it took me 3 hours to buy a few basics by walking to supermarkets, seeing the queues, walking to the next supermarket etc. I ended up in town before I found one without a queue.

It might be worth trying several small shops. I think people are so used to going to a big supermarket and getting everything in one place that they don't think of the alternatives which end up both less busy and with more stock.

The Now Show mentioned that Ann Summers had pasta in stock when others had run out - it's not the one of the usual shapes though. ;)

It was one of the first targeted foods when the panic buying kicked in.

 

I'm of the view the supply chain just cannot get it in fast enough now.

 

Another thing I heard was given Italy was in lockdown, food manufacturers would have trouble sending out to markets.

 

We don't use alot but I managed to get 2 packs 3 weeks ago- so at least it is in the house.

I've never been massive pasta fan, so I've avoided this!

 

I think my local shops is great for stock, and the big supermarket nearby has been ok. People adhering to the distancing. Cleaning products for you to clean trolley (although they were doing this with them all anyway)

 

And though limited stock, I just bought as usual, and most others doing same.

 

 

I just hope this continues, and we can all get through this a bit easier.

Little positives.

 

my daughter has always been a fussy eater. She normally has a different tea to me and my mrs.

 

not any more - we all cook something we all agree we would like based on what we’ve got in.


She helps cook it and knows what’s going in it and she’s tried all sorts of stuff over last week all which she’s eaten.

People with eating disorders usually focus on one food at a time,the panick buying has been an absolute nightmare for them,Mcdonalds shut,KFC,chippys,many isles stripped in supermarkets,lets not be too judgemental when see someone getting anxiuos and shouting about no chicken nuggets,it maybe thats all they can EAT !

A factor in the queues now is that some people inside the shops ,that have a 30 people at a time measure in place, are in there waltzing around taking their time.

Some of those you refer to as " waltzing around taking their time" will be people who need that extra time. Some autistic people, for example, need 2 to 3 times longer to complete a task than a neurotypical would require. That applies especially during periods of stress and change. I think while this is going on it is important to not be too judgemental and to remember that not all disabilities are visible.
