I'm in Chicago proper, and we seem to have more stuff on the shelves than my friends in the suburbs. I've also noticed that here on the south side, there's more stuff on the shelves than on the north side. I'm not sure if it's just an income difference - south side has more low income folks who may not have the money to hoard things they have to buy - or, as my boyfriend thinks, a cultural one. In his words, "Black and brown people have always thought something like this was about to happen. They mostly ain't scared." (He's black. He's scared. But he hides it well.)

Only things out today between the Aldi and the Walmart Neighborhood store were corned beef hash and breakfast sausage at Aldi and paper towels at Walmart.
