VIDEO: COVID-19 panic-buyers strip an Abbotsford Save-On-Foods of meat

March 16 Youtube video shows barren shelves in meat section of one store

Grocery-store hoarding amidst the COVID-19 outbreak has left one meat section on an Abbotsford Save-On-Foods completely barren.

A video was uploaded to Youtube on March 16, showing the empty shelves. It’s unclear what Save-On-Foods location this was in Abbotsford, but a department manager at the South Fraser Way location said, although this wasn’t their store, this type of panic-buying has been a problem all over.

“Everyone’s in the same boat,” he said. “We’re trying to put a limit on everything.”

The News has reached out to the head office of Save-On-Foods for further details.
