Empty shelves in the shops

Post by bajm » 28 Oct 2011 16:19

Yesterday I wanted to buy some bread and then I noticed that none was available in any of thye 7/11 's anymore because of supply problems.
When I went to Tesco’s I was shocked to notice that most of their shelves were totaly empty. Only non-food products were on stock.
But for instance drinking water was not available anymore. After driving around I found one shop where I could find some water.

I am afraid that this may cause serious problems in the Bang Saphan area as well.

Same in Chiang Mai shelves are emptying fast.Problem seems to be getting stock trucked out of Bangkok which is understandable. Lots of panic buying is not helping.

I managed to find some eggs yesterday, but they only had one tray left, so only bought 4, best not to be greedy. I didn't find any bread either. I think the bakers in town, is going to be rather busy the next few days.

Plenty of rice, bread and water in the Chinese shop on the corner, we seem to have been spared the Bangkok influx.
