Empty paper-towel and toilet-paper shelves at Dedham Stop and Shop

This was the paper towel/toilet paper aisle at the Dedham Stop &;amp; Shop late this afternoon. Maybe it was just one of those things, or are people stocking up on the paper goods again?

They did have a pallet of six-month packages of Scott paper towels at the other end, along with a pallet of one of paper towels under one of those foreign brand names you'd never heard of before, oh, April 2020: Read more.

Confrontation at Kingston Stop & Shop

The Patriot Ledger reports shoppers at the Kingston Stop & Shop tackled a man this afternoon after he allegedly began spitting on produce. Police arrested him, the store informed him he was no longer welcome and, as you can see in the video, Marty the Robot whirled around and beeped uselessly, frustrated he could not continue his search for fallen lettuce leaves because of the confrontation.

No ketchup

Every day, it seems like people look at the empty toilet-paper and chicken shelves at the Dedham Stop & Shop and go "Oh, no, what can I buy instead?!?" Today, the store was completely out of ketchup. Who knew ketchup was going to be in such high demand during an apocalypse?

The store was also completely out of frozen pizzas, except a few flatbread pizzas and "pizza" made out of cauliflower, which pretty much proves nobody wants that stuff.

Marty the robot and somebody in a Marty costume

Kate Estrop reports from the Stop & Shop on McGrath Highway in Somerville:

Even if you've practiced for hours, sometimes the only thing you can say when you meet your hero is, "Beep beep."

Marty stood in Aisle 3, seething, his eyes flashing yellow in impotent rage, for he had no arms and could only grimly warn passersby of the danger that lay in front of him, a dropped package of fruit rollups. Read more.
