I have noticed that at local stores, they spread out the inventory to make it look like they have products, but it's only one deep.
I bought an emergency food supply three years ago. I would suggest that you do the same ASAP! Plus I stock up when I can.
my own observances. I live in rural Midwest, just around the corner of a major St. Rt. The truck traffic has dropped significantly even though I am in between 2 sizable town. As far as grocery store, I also have seen many empty shelves and lack of diversity in products. I grow myself much of what i need so survive so don't really count on the grocery store to feed me.. When it comes to the price of a can of soup? Making your own is simple so why waste your money on a product that is probably laden with GMO's and all kinds of pesticides? As far as meat? Find a local farmer that has the right mindset and buy it there. Same as shopping a farmers market for fruits and veggies. The biggest thing i have seen, as a pet boarding facility and owner of many pets including chickens, is the price of animal food. Most has more than doubled and I am finding my animals just won't eat the same food i have fed for years. I think the manufacturers are also experiencing supply chain problems and using cheap fillers. Have heard the same complaints from some of my clients. The human race is considered useless eaters by the cabal so why not our animals too. And yet, we keep paying taxes to destroy ourselves. Wake Up!
No shortages in local Wal Mart or Publix in my town. Meat prices high. S.E. Alabama.
When the reset happens and we have the new digital dollar you can kiss the vast majority of retail stores goodby. You will order what you want, pick it up or have it delivered. Same with the banks they will be gone as well since money you can put in your pocket will be mostly gone. There will be ATMs for very limited use. You can see we are already have the big box stores with these options because that is what is coming. You won't buy a car you will lease it and you won't buy a home you will rent it, because in both cases it will be cheaper than buying. This supply chain fiasco is deliberately being done to kill retail sales. Amazon is the look into the future. There is nothing you or any politician can do to stop it.
If you try to barter or use gold and silver you will be treated like a drug dealer.
