If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve noticed since sometime during summer that the mainstream media and “experts” like Dr. Anthony Fauci have been programming us to accept a “second wave” of the COVID-19 scam. It looks like grocery stores are now bracing for that reality, as they stock up on inventory amid fears of another lockdown.
Brace yourselves. Because it looks like the ruling class is going to try to pull off another lockdown. According to the Wall Street Journal, Associated Food Stores has recently started building “pandemic pallets” to ensure cleaning and sanitizing products are readily available in its warehouses to prepare for high demand through the end of the year.
“We will never again operate our business as unprepared for something like this,” Darin Peirce, vice president of retail operations for the cooperative of more than 400 stores told the outlet. If grocery stores sense something is coming and are preparing for another “wave” of this scamdemic, it may be something worth taking note of.
Also building up their inventory ahead of the holidays is Ahold Delhaize, owner of the Giant and Food Lion chains, which said to be storing 10% to 15% more inventory than it did before the pandemic to ensure it won’t run out of fast-selling items, according to a report by Fox Business.
Food manufacturers are also taking precautions in anticipation of the second wave of panic buying over forced lockdowns. Hormel Foods CEO James Snee noted in the company’s third-quarter earnings call that while the company isn’t seeing any COVID-19 outbreaks, it is still making “significant increases” in some of its core center store items such as pepperoni, bacon, SPAM, as the company seeks to mitigate the risk of disruptions from a potential second wave of the virus. “We can’t afford any disruptions,” Snee said.
It’s getting late in the game to be prepared, but if you can even buy a few cans of extra soup or beans at this point, do so. Anything could help. If the ruling class pulls off this second lockdown, it won’t be like the first and will finish off the middle class financially.
