Wal-Mart report, Fort Walton Beach, FL.

I just went to pick up one thing.
Earlier today, they were out of TP, paper towels, some canned goods, bleach etc.
Now, first of all the parking lot is worse than at Christmastime, I had to park in Sam's parking
Second, no carts on either side thankfully, I only needed 1 vitamin they constantly sell out of.
The first couple people I saw were wearing masks, I have not seen this in person before.
The line I waited in for self checkout was longer than I have ever experienced for SC and I swear people are standing closer together than before, maybe that's just me.(all kinds of crazy thoughts running through my mind as I stood there)
I haven't done one of these before, I thought I would just share my experience.

5. True, that didn't even cross my mind. Especially when

the young couple in front of me seemed baffled as to what was happening.👀

3. Anyone who wants bleach and can't find it, look for chlorine.

It's stronger so it requires more dilution and be careful for the fumes and getting it on your skin. Many grocery stores carry it. You can also find it at hardware stores and pool stores.

4. Long lines at grocery stores here in NW PA

We stop in a Walmart in Western NY tonight and it was crazy there. Since they have closed all the schools here in PA I get a 2 week vacation hopefully with pay.

7. I recall seeing posts

a week ago which described panic buying. Clearly, more people than ever before are taking this seriously, I expect tomorrow and Sunday to be pretty crazy.

8. Lines were out the door, and almost no parking in the lot.

Our Costco in Fairfield, California.
