With some establishment media finally joining the party, and catching up and reporting on different types of shortages still being seen randomly throughout America, we note new shortages expected will be on items that generally weren’t a problem the last time around.
One of the main points people seem to ignore or forget is that grocery stores and other places to purchase food are still not recovered from the initial rounds of panic shopping when the COVID-19 lockdowns first began.
Recent reports show stores are trying to get their stocks replenished, while at the same time trying to prepare for another round of panic shopping, which according to some reports, has already begun.
Another things we have been hearing about is the lack of variety and ability to obtain certain brands, as many companies have limited their choices in order to keep other items available.
When the coronavirus pandemic first struck, grocery retailers across the nation were scrambling to restock shelves as consumers panic-shopped for canned goods, flour, yeast and most curiously, toilet paper. Now, with a second wave of COVID-19 looming and fear over potential unrest around the presidential election, consumers are aggressively stocking up on various foods. And grocers are struggling to keep up with the demand.
“As of now what we are seeing is the start of the second wave of panic,” said Chris Mentzer, the director of operations for Rastelli Market Fresh in New Jersey. “Our customers keep telling me how they are looking for any type of freezer to purchase so they can start stocking up their homes now. Their main concern is meat.” He explained that customers are mainly looking to buy and freeze beef and poultry — ground beef, steaks, roasts and all varieties of chicken.
“They’re also starting to buy a lot of frozen meals and frozen pizzas,” said Mentzer. “We are seeing anything that can be microwaved quickly or easily made in the oven for kids, fly off the shelves, as people are preparing for schools and colleges to be closed this winter — along with a run on dried goods and paper goods, as well.”
.Usually on these food shortage reports we list available items for readers to get online to avoid having to get caught up in the chaos of panic shoppers, at the bottom of the article, which we will also do here, but we will add some throughout as we report on it.
With that said, refrigerators and freezers, are beginning to be a little more difficult to come by, according to Kitchn.com.
Is your refrigerator running? If so, you better go catch it (thank you, endlessly entertaining kindergarten joke). But if it’s not, you might be really out of luck these days: NPR reports that after all the yeast and flour shortages of early quarantine, what’s really hard to track down these days isn’t a specific food, but the appliance in which we store our food.
It’s not the first appliance to disappear from warehouses: In the spring, a run on freezers as people stocked up on supplies rendered them unavailable for months. And when those were gone, customers moved on to purchasing all the refrigerators that had freezers on them.
The article also says that to a lesser extent they are seeing shortages of washers and dryers as well.
From what we are hearing, many appliance stores are still selling all the aforementioned products but some are saying it could be weeks or months before the item will be in store or available to be delivered, so it is a little difficult to stock up on items that need refrigeration and freezing without the appliance to store said food in.
The items listed below are all in stock with a very short delivery time, as of now, that could change at any moment.
Fridges and Freezers:
According to SFGate, there is also expected to be a run on gloves again, which makes it prudent to order now to replenish what you have used over the course of the past few months.
It is also mentioned in that piece that the prices for gloves and masks and other similar items have risen considerably, which leads us to the conclusion that as the supplies start dwindling again, those prices will spike again as well.
Gloves and Masks:
As for masks, we will list some here, but given the new reports about the ineffectiveness of masks used by those not infected, we would caution folks to do some research and decide for yourself if you want to stock up on them or not.
New reports are also showing what items are expected to fly off the shelves first, and will many recommending the stocking up on gloves and masks, other items they are recommending the purchase of in preparation for more shortages, include hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies and, once again, toilet paper.
How “experts” can recommend toilet paper and other items, while ignoring food, always manages to astound me.
Foods available for delivery will be listed at the bottom of this article because there is a significant amount. Cleaning supplies, toilet paper and hand sanitizer will be listed below the foods.
On October 12, 2020, NewsMax headlined with “Americans Plan to Stockpile Food as Pandemic Persists.”
In that piece they highlight a new survey which shows that 52% of Americans “plan to stockpile groceries and other household products this fall to prepare for a possible recurrence of the pandemic.”
The article also mentions fears of election unrest adding to the reasoning for the planned stockpiling.
On October 14, 2020, USA Today also reported “Americans plan to stockpile food this fall over fears of COVID-19 surge, election unrest.”
“We talked about doing a big shop like we’re going into quarantine,” says Hall, 53, of Burlington, Vermont. On the list: enough basics such as milk, beans and rice to last for two to three weeks.
Hall, a consultant, points out that her local grocery stores struggle to keep their shelves fully stocked and have shortages of products like cleaning supplies, even though her state has one of the lowest COVID-19 rates in the U.S.
“Arguably speaking, we have control of things in Vermont, but you still go into the grocery store and there are shelves that are sparse,” she says.
This is why I said at the top of this article that the establishment media has finally joined the party as they have downplayed the initial shortages until it was too late to encourage people to stock up because they shelves were already empty.
This tells us that if they are warning people now about expected shortages, we can be sure they are expected to be much worse than what the media is reporting.
Seriously, at this point, even if there is no second wave of the coronavirus, a second wave of panic shopping has already begun. First because of the hype of the media and their howls of “second wave of COVID-19.”
Secondly and perhaps more importantly, Americans are seeing the unrest in the streets, the Antifa/BLM rioters, buildings and cars burning, stores emptied and left a mess by looters, and innocent men and women on the street, outdoor dining and even trying to sleep in their homes, being harassed by thugs.
Anyone that thinks that grocery stores and other food retailers are going to get back to normal on selection and availability of specific brands, is in for a big surprise, if anything it will get worse.
Last but not least, we are seeing reports and chatter online of expected peanut, therefore peanut butter shortages expected, along with corn syrup that people who use a lot for their businesses are having a hard time acquiring the amounts they need.

If the mainstream media, at least a small portion of it, are finally acknowledging the shortages, and offering a limited amount of reports about round two of panic shopping having already begun, then we can fully expect things to break wide open very soon where the “news” cannot be ignored by the rest of the MSM.
Readers of Independent Media took heed when their trusted websites informed them of the shortages that were coming, and warned about the “medical martial law,” that was coming, despite being treated like fear-mongers by those ignoring what was happening, did what they needed to do, stocked up, slowly and carefully without panic shopping, resupplied what was needed, and saved themselves from having to enter the fray of panic shoppers when it all finally hit the fan.
While personally I do not think the second wave of COVID-19 will be anywhere near what the first wave was, I do think that liberal state leaders and politicians, will attempt to shut down their cities and the economy again anyway, which is why the upcoming shortages are almost a given at this point.
Stock up, resupply, top of what you have, and if you need things, get them now, they may be listed as “currently unavailable” by next week or next month.
