One topic which has been talked about considerably this last month is shopping for food and supplies. Everyone has heard about the mad rush to buy toilet paper and other daily supplies. Some stores around the state have been accused of raising their prices unnecessarily, all at a time when they are struggling to meet the public’s needs. In a recent discussion with W.D.O.R.’s Nick Olson, Sister Bay Piggly Wiggly manager Jay Kita detailed how they are dealing with this new situation of supply and demand.
While local grocers are trying their hardest to keep all product well-stocked, some items are very difficult to get in. Yet still, Kita says they are finding ways to keep various items in stock.
In addition to keeping their shelves stocked and their prices down, Kita went on to say how he is in close communication with other local grocers, sharing helpful information so they can all keep their customers and employees as safe as possible. Upon entering their stores you will instantly see plastic gloves available, disinfectant hand wipes, and new plentiful reminders to keep a safe distance from others.
