I thought I would start a thread for the conditions of local stores. I went to the HEB on villa maria around 11 a.m. and it was crowded but not "panic" rushed. A lot of bare shelves but it looked like they were restocking as fast as they could. Any information would be appreciated. I've heard rumors of long lines at Wal-Marts and what not.

Just got back from the Texas Avenue H-E-B. Pretty much the same as you reported. Crowded but not crazy. Plenty of food available including frozen. Of course no TP and pretty much out of paper towels and Kleenexes as well.

Villa Maria Walmart looked totally normal this morning when we went by there. I didn't notice anything in short supply.

Kroger on Rock Prairie is very busy. No TP, almost no rice, sugar or flour. Egg supply was low. Most other things seemed ok

Noticed that they were very low on meat as well - didn't spot any ground beef at all and slim pickings for the rest of it

H-E-B tower point was NUTS this morning!! No TP or paper towels, no potatoes, very few jars of peanut butter, tuna, beans, rice and frozen veggies. Every checker was open and the lines were 4 or 5 deep at every register.

I went to HEB on Hwy21/Texas Yesterday. Packed at 4pm. Cleaning supplies and toilet paper out, but regular amounts of every else still there.

Home Depot had a decent supply of paper towels and toilet paper earlier. A couple of friends report available paper goods at the dollar stores they visited.

Does anyone know why there is a run on toilet paper? It makes no sense to me.

I think it has now become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

People are anticipating mandatory quarantine in their homes. It won't come to that. But there's no reasoning with people.

And I think you are right. There's no TP on the shelves, so people think they HAVE to get some.

For going to the grocery store? Or for posting updates to those who may need to go?

Wife is there now getting food for the week like we normally do. Said people are going crazy and buying everything. Also said people are walking around with face masks. People really are this ignorant. There is no food or toilet paper shortage. Guess we are eating out this week.

Let's hope the restaurants stay open.

My husband just left Kroger on Boonville and the cashier mentioned they might close down temporarily since they are running so low on stock of everything.

No it's for the people going to the store and buying everything in sight and way too much.
We went to the store this evening to grab groceries as we do at some point every weekend.
People in there acting like the world is about to end.
Buying anything and everything in sight.
Absolutely ridiculous

Gotcha. It is pretty crazy. I don't understand the stocking up on TP thing. Seems like food would be a higher priority. Strange days.

Stopped at Buc'ees tonight in Waller on the way home from the airport. Bought a gallon of milk there after hearing all the local grocery stores were out of everything. Manger told the cashier when we were checking out to only allow 1 gallon of milk and 1 carton of eggs to be purchased.

Went to Briarcrest Walmart about 6:30 on my way somewhere else. I determined people would rather use the bathroom than eat.

It's largely a result of about thirty years of the extreme lack of teaching critical thinking skills in schools and in colleges.

Overall, society knows all the facts, but can't think.

Whoever manages the Kroger on Rock Prairie deserves some major kudos. I was there late yesterday afternoon and got everything we needed, which was just normal stuff for the next week or so of meals. Yes, the TP aisle was completely cleaned out but we bought plenty of that 3 weeks ago at Sams.

Their stockers were working as quickly as they could to restock. I think one of the managers was also stocking shelves which shows true leadership. Several checkout lines open with the checkers working at a noticeable increased pace. Overall, I was really impressed with how the whole store was working together in the face of craziness.

And I didn't witness any really crazy behavior by the customers. Everyone was cordial and patient to each other even though the store was very busy.

Tower Point HEB is restocking a lot of stuff this morning that wasn't there yesterday. Was able to get some milk and chicken- both were out yesterday.
