There's a queue at every store at every minute of the hour now

Post by Steve30000 »

Or so it seems...

There's always a big queue at Sainsbury’s during the day, but quiet in the evening.. Not now, there's still one there half an hour before it closes. 🙄

Same at b&m and poundland and tescos, no matter which one you go to.

You could work out what time to pop in to avoid this at one time... Nope, not now, cos everyone is doing the same now, and it's like this ALL day, from the minute they open to the minute they close.

I also notice that at every single shop, and supermarket, the same items are never there now, when I used to get them no bother. Panic buying stockpilers, that's what's happening here

I won't queue up like.
I have had a routine for 2 weeks and so far I get everything I shop for and without the queuing.

No.
Possibly because I go out a little later.

There's still queues all day, no matter what time.

For a few weeks now I have had no problems whatsoever, no queues at all.
Try the shops at the Wheatsheaf after 7pm ...... and any Aldi.

I'll guess that those stores won't stock what the vast majority of people want.

Even them.. People wipe them out during the day, especially all the wipes and sanitisers..

Dettol are struggling to keep up with demand, seeing as some are using them for everything instead of food preparation. So they end up using more

I have very few problems shopping now apart from the odd queue but I won't wait in those now.
