Selling a variety of items Saturday 1 February from 7.00 am. 20 Saint Albans Avenue. Hokowhitu
My little girl didn't want to leave her bear in the window, so she kept on taking it out ,as you can see she knows .. sneaky sneaky.
My Dad lives in Hamilton and I live in Palmy he has Alzheimers but manages to still live at home with carers help. For the last 14 months I have done his groceries on line but of course now with this happening I am having problems. He has run out of food and although I have rung the supermarket 3 times now emailed a list, given them my credit card etc, they still haven't delivered his food. Does anyone know who else I could contact, I can't seem to find anything on the covid-19 website.
We have all heard the Govt saying, "there is no shortage of food & there is no price gouging." however I can't say I'm seeing evidence to support either statement as every time I got to the store, something is marked up higher than what it was before The Lockdown and there are always rows of empty shelves.
In regards to that, I notice a lot of the time the healthier options of food are often cleaned out the fastest. Such as alternative baking goods like almond flour and non-sugar sweeteners. I wonder if those who have specific dietary needs or diseases that prevent them from having all the always readily available sugary and carb loaded stuff that is seemingly always stocked, are getting what they need.
I'd like to hear back if you have a special dietary need, not just a preference. And if you are finding it in stock or if it is always, or often gone when you get there.
Is this a real problem, should the government look at a special shopping window similar to what "essential workers" just got? So that those in real need have the opportunity before those who don't do.
I'd also like to know for those of us who do go out to the shops, if something isn't there, are you going back again and again in the hopes to find it?
What are y'all's thoughts on this?
