    I don't get it.
    While everyone else is running out of mince, they're holding a 50% off to try and get rid of it?
    Great prices though I must say.

      All freezers might finally be full?

      It is surplus stock that should’ve gone to the hospitality industry which is now dead.

        Wow you are right I forgot about this but yeah all the restaurants dine in shutting down is having an effect on over supply now so we should see ultra specials like this more soon unless they have had to bin it all now.

      We're running out thanks to the moronic panic buyers stocking their freezers, not due to insufficiency of beef in the country. We actually have surplus thanks to some cancelled exports due to the COVID-19 crisis worldwide.

        I've often wondered, if people think things are going to get so apocalyptic that they have to pack their freezer, and that second freezer they bought, with mince and frozen vegetables, what do they think will happen to all that food when the power inevitably goes off?

          That's when you start your generator using your stockpile of panic bought fuel.

        •  

          The obvious explanation is that they don't think it's going to apocalyptic - they think there are going to be food shortages or increased problems getting access to the food. My family in the UK are sometimes spending over an hour in a queue to get into the supermarket - I dread to think what it's like in places like Italy.

          Not that what they're doing is a good thing for the rest of us of course.

            @callum9999: apparently in italy shops are open and no shortages?

            @callum9999: On the other hand all these restrictions means people have to go to the shops every second day. It isnt necessarily bad to bulk buy if it manages to cut your trips down to the supermarkets - which i tell you are probably the busiest ive ever seen them.

        Some stock up so they don't need to do so many shopping runs.

      I thought the above was a joke when I read the comment.

      Then I went to the SMH website and saw this:

      The country's liquor retailers have united to enforce purchasing restrictions from today.
      The temporary rules restrict buyers to purchasing from two of these product categories in the one transaction, to the following limits: two cases of beer, two cases of cider, two cases of pre-mixed spirits, 12 bottles of wine, two casks of wine, or two bottles of spirits.

      Everyone has gone mad.

        I saw a week or so ago that WA had enacted restriction on alcohol purchases.

        You were limited to buying the equivalent of 100 standard drinks a day. Each.

        Oh, the humanity.

    Target have now changed their opening hours

    it is now 10am to 5pm monday to saturday and 11am to 5pm sundays

    People are saying shops like k-mart,Big W and Target are non essential and need to be shut down to stop the spread of the virus

    Even if they close down till this al blows over the way people are acting in supermarkets by not following the social distancing rules down the isles it's more likely to be spread there

    Most of my local target sales have been through online orders with600 placed last sunday (which is good because it means less contact between us monkeys)

    We're starting to see the effects of the hoarders staying indoors, not leaving their bunkers, consuming the 50kg of mince they purchased a few weeks back.

    • +2 votes

      True, saw it yesterday in costco as well, meat aisles were full and no one buying it, hoarders have already filled up their garages.

      • +8 votes

        This is the sad part about hoarding. It creates a spike then a trough. Suppliers and retailers are aware of this, but they can't dial it down perfectly and we end up with so much wastage like this in the UK: https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/health-problems/cor...

        Most hoarders have never bulked purchased like Ozbargainers, which unfortunately will lead to the wastage from the spike, then we get wastage from the trough when there's less buying.

          Who the heck put those bananas in the bin?!? They are still green and just take time to ripen, definitely not off at all!! That person must truly be a complete effing moron.

          I hope that maybe someone just added those bananas temporarily to make that shot of the wastage even more dramatic, nobody can be that freaking stupid

        Starting to be the same with TP too. Went into my local coles (30 mins from CBD) and there was a giant pallet of TP stacked taller than me, 10 mins before closing time. Nobody touching it. Grabbed a pack and took a photo, and me and a random lady laughed about it.

        •  

          Which Coles would that be?

          Every Coles, Woolies and Aldi I've been to in the past few days are empty of TP.

            @sillywalks: In Melbourne, PM me and I'll tell you exactly where. I've just come out of another Coles on the other side of town and there was also a shelf of TP, not many people touching it.

              @Andard: Melbourne’s a bit far to drive from western Sydney!!!

              But thanks for the offer.

              Stay safe! And thanks for being willing to help.

                @sillywalks: My locals have it. Costs a bit more than usual. Coles and Woolworths.
                Woolworths had cheaper stuff as well. Essentials range. Even had flour and a bit of pasta.

                I know a local place which has heaps of pasta (vic eastern suburbs)

                When I was queueing at coles, staff asked me if I would like to buy a bottle of sanitizer. $8.50 for a travel bottle

                Looks like some of the shortages are ending over here

                Ice cream though, Sara lee and connoisseur are full price

    Nah I alrady have a chest freezer and if I bought another one I would only buy more than I need and become on of the hoard and after all this is over it will just be sitting there unplugged and unused (well until the next virus comes along next year)

    Even my Coles and WW had lots of reduced to clear meats and fresh dairy

    •  

      Honestly? My local only had expensive cuts of lamb and beef left besides pork.
      Fresh dairy I can't see being a problem here, our milk has 16 days until use by.
