PRODUCT AVAILABILITY


We are committed to serving our communities throughout these times of uncertainty. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, with limited supply, higher than usual demand, and new constraints to our supply chain, our suppliers have been forced to increase their prices on certain products. As a result of these pressures on industry, you may temporarily see higher prices and limited stock on certain products.

While shopping, we encourage you to keep your neighbors in mind and only take what you immediately need for the coming week or two. We recognize that supply and demand for food will continue to be unbalanced. We are committed to providing value for our goods and services and will not be raising prices because of demand during this pandemic. Thank you for your business and patience during these unprecedented times.
