'THE GREAT STARVATION' HAS BEGUN-I SUGGEST YOU ALL USE THIS WEEKEND TO ACQUIRE LAST MINUTE GROCERIES FIRST AND FOREMOST AS ONCE THE PANIC BEGINS-THERE WILL BE NOTHING FOR YOU TO BUY!BE PROACTIVE NOT REACTIVE

Howdy,Steve

Once or twice a month I stock up on prepping supplies and noticed the
shelves in Walmart were rather empty. Additionally, there are fewer and
fewer "Great Value" - Walmart's generic brand - options on the shelf.

So I asked one of the cashiers I frequent what was the reason.

She said, and I am quoting as close as I can remember:

"something happened to our supply line around Christmas and we have not
been able to get anything since.."

I pushed her a little harder...

"You mean anything?" I asked?

She said:

"Just about". "We haven't been able to get our own products since and
don't get regular deliveries of other stuff like we used to..."

I asked why and what the management is telling them about it...

She said:

"They are not telling us anything... not a word"

Take that for what it means but given your recent cautions of late it gives
me pause. It used to be that there was always a "Walmart" semi in the
parking lot parked in proximity to the rv's and such. I can't remember the
last time I saw one. Not painted "Walmart" anyway.

I accept that this is a rural area but it is only about an hour from
Portland, OR as the crow flies. In any case the I-5 corridor is within 30
miles. Whatever the problem, it isn't one of demand or of
infrastructure...

Three months without their own brand being shelved is telling... Your
thoughts?

Thanking you for your tireless advocacy,
VC
