Your recourse is to return items that are not of expected quality.
Agreed but a lot of stores are not accepting returns at this time. At least that's the policy here.

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

Forget Clorox/Lysol Wipes/Spray unless you get there when they are stocking. It would sure help if these stores would enforce quantity limits. I respect the limit 1 every time (I may go every day and get my 1, but that is still within the rules) and don't take the whole shelf/box of product but oth...

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

I wonder if the suppliers are prioritizing the larger chains and not sending to the smaller ones? The 2 grocers I found paper towel shortages in locally are Price Chopper/Market 32 and Hannaford. Chopper, while it's the 800-pound gorilla locally, is really relatively small-131 stores total so that ...

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

Clorox wipes will have a shortage until 2021. I've seen that as well but they were available in Wal-Mart and Target this week. Granted, I was in those stores earlier in the morning on a weekday but they're out there albeit in rather limited quantities. Being retired, I'm fortunate I can shop whenev...

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

Toilet paper is back in stock at most places. Same here but now there seems to be an issue with paper towels but only in supermarkets. Places like Wal-Mart are fully stocked with them. Also, since it was mentioned recently, White Cloud toilet paper is now available in my local area. I've seen it in...

Re: Stores Returning to Regular Hours

Are competing stores in your area open later? The Target across the road from the local Wal-Mart by an hour and a half-they close at 10:00 but they open an hour later so it's really only nets out to a half hour extra per day. Also have a Kohl's adjacent to Target and their hours are 10:00-8:00. My ...

Re: Stores Returning to Regular Hours

Same old same old here with Wal-Mart store hours-still opening at 7:00 and closing at 8:30.

Re: Coronavirus and Plastic Bag Bans

Aside from Price Chopper/Market 32 and Tops, pretty much everybody else is business as usual around here in regards to bags. Hannaford and Wal-Mart are using thin plastic and Target is using (and NOT charging for them) paper bags with handles. I just wish there was one coherent policy and every stor...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

I agree with you but unfortunately, sentimentality has no place in the corporate world. All you have to do is check out E-Bay or go to an antique store and see all the retail artifacts for sale and I ought to know-I've bought enough of them over the years :mrgreen: You think for one minute fast Eddi...

Re: Safeway East Consolidating into Acme

Thought question-Is it possible they convert some of the Safeways to Acme and to carry it further would Safeway be bold enough to venture into the Phila. area again after the Genuardi's disaster by perhaps rebranding some of the Acmes to Safeway?
