ooh yeah, good stuff!
This morning I awoke to read that Alabama is closing 78 liquor stores throughout the state, including the 2 closest to me. Phew! Made it just in time!

We have a liquor cabinet and the overflow is a cabinet in the kitchen. We mostly drink beer so the rest of the stuff doesn't get used that often - mostly holidays. I had another couple over for dinner one night and first we brought out something from the liquor cabinet then had to grab a different bottle from the overflow in the kitchen. My friend took one look at the bottles and said "two liquor cabinets! I'm coming to your house when there's a zombie apocalypse"! I thought of her tonight because we are only stocked with food for a week, maybe two, but man, we have enough booze to get us through the rest of 2020. I figure that scotch will be a tiger trader during a TP shortage!
We have WAY too much booze too. (I like to make creative jello shots for parties/sporting events) We've had people say our bar has more booze than some licensed establishments they've been to. Plus when we built our house I gave my DH a kegerator as a house warming present. He tapped a new keg on Saturday so he should be good for a while! (Plus he stocks up on Oktoberfest beer 'cause it's his favorite.)

We can get alcohol in grocery stores (I have tried lots of whack stuff on deep discount cuz why not? If I like it, I can go fetch 6 more and help them move unloved inventory...) Gas stations can sell beer and maybe wine. So far as I know, our shutdown did not wipe out liquor stores, but, they are "retail stores" so maybe pressured. I, personally, consider them to be "critical infrastructure".

Long ago I lived near the Ohio border and was so impressed with drive-through liquor stores! we need more of those.

Maybe at the end of a drive thru swab test, you could get pick of 6 pk of this or pint of that ... for your first test only ; )

I love it! Great idea!

Beer and wine can be sold in grocery stores here, but not liquor. We do have private liquor stores which are more expensive because they actually have to buy their stock from the state.

I really don’t know why I live in this hot, humid, backwards-thinking place!

Stop N Shop on Long Island announced they are having senior-only shopping hours 6 am to 7:30 am , in an effort to protect this at-risk population. They only want customers over the age of 60, but say they will not be carding at the door. However they reserve the right to refuse to sell to anyone who does not meet the age requirement.

Of course everything looks backwards to the one who is backwards.
Plenty of exits in all directions.

So Sams Club got me all excited tonight. Their website showed hand sanitizer and clorox spray available. Put them in my online cart and when I went to pay, no longer available. Their website should be able to show when everything is gone. I have choice words for them. More, it is surely sucks that this is what excited me. :doh:

I hate when that happens. I ordered some pet supplies online from Petco. After checking out and committing the money, my order confirmation said "Backordered." No timeline on when it would be available. Then, two days later, I get an email saying it had shipped. Strange.

Hopefully Sam's will provide better service for you.

Same happened to me when ordering from Harris Teeter grocery store. They showed disinfectant wipes (their brand) in 4 scents. Ordered two. None when order picked up.

I’m feeling good. Got my bidet thingy yesterday. Very little toilet paper needed.View attachment 17815
Ordered this bidet from Amazon. Installed it yesterday. The room temperature water is no issue at all, and actually is quite refreshing. Installation was a no-brainer. Glad I did it. Haven't had it long enough to predict paper usage. So far I'm it's only user, but I expect when DW gets over some initial skittishness with ANYTHING new, she'll fall in love (or at least like) with it too.

It's Saturday, DH & I were at Costco 5 minutes after opening. No lines.
By the entry door was a list of items in stock and TP was one of them, limit 1 per membership.
First time in 2+ weeks we've seen some. Told DH we should go first to get TP instead of
meandering our way thru fruits & veggies, bakery etc like we usually do. We did get a pack.
Leaving the warehouse about 45 minutes later, the entry door sign had been updated to TP out of stock.

I went online a couple of days ago to check Amazon's stock on tp. To my surprise I found lots of it available. Still can't get wipes online though.

Funny, my Costco had 5 packs of Chlorox wipes available too, across from the TP.
But these were still available after the TP sold out.

Dh got the last large container of wipes at our local Market Street a couple of days ago.
