Panic-buying (unfounded) in Sitges & Ribes supermarkets

The local supermarkets in Sitges and Sant Pere de Ribes have witnessed an abnormal situation during the last week.

The fear that the supply of products would be affected by the indefinite strike of truck drivers across Spain called since last Monday 14 March, together with the on-going war in Ukraine following the Russian invasion, has caused a certain instability in the activity of local establishments, with some products selling out before new stock arrives, and other products going up in price.

Over the weekend, local shoppers compulsively snapped up many of the basic necessities, reminiscent of the scenes experienced during March 2020, just before the State of Alarm was announced at the outbreak of the Covid pandemic.
