My wife was after sugar last week for just regular shopping. None in two Grocery chains or Walmart. Online a few days later, Walmart said no 10lbs but had 25s. Went there, no 25s but plenty of 10s back on the shelf. I expect it is a restocking problem, not a warehouse problem. (yet) Takes a brave person to work a grocery. Healthcare worker; Hero.

I bought 8 25lb bags at SAMS Saturday. They had full pallets of 10 and 25lb bags.
Go figure.

As Grey Goose suggested the hoarding fever will likely soon subside. Initially you could not find it on the shelves, along with eggs, pasta or soup but it is coming back now. I think the powers that be realize the food chain must be maintained at all costs.

Any food distributors or bakery supply companies near you? They could use the business now and are usually stocked in bulk.

All I could ever find was 4 lb bags. I bought two/day (limit) at Walmart by my office and wife bought 2/day at Walmart by her office until I had enough to feed 8 hives. A larger scale beekeeper would find that untenable.

In a true free market price would rise and fall with supply and demand. TP might be $10.00 a single roll, but the shelves would not be empty. But if that were true it would be harder to hide inflation.

If you are on the frontlines thank you for being brave and doing your job.
No sugar here in Delaware County either. As of now 14 positive; hopefully it wont creep up from the City to us here.

If people can't find enough sugar for their hives, they may have to sacrifice some of their honey to put back in the hives (if they have any).

People should be maxing out their pantries pretty soon, and then I think you'll see items getting replenished on the shelves.

I read a story this morning about restaurants giving people a roll of toilet paper with their to go orders. At first I thought, "How nice", then I thought, "Just how much TP do they have?" And "No wonder there is none at the stores". ;)
