Shoppers are lining up out the door at grocery stores across SWFL

It’s getting harder to find items like meat, eggs and even onions and, of course, toilet paper in grocery stores across Southwest Florida.

Stores in Southwest Florida are continuously filled with shoppers stocking up on necessities, but we have seen the biggest crowds in Lee County grocery stores.

At Costco in Lee County, people could be seen lining up outside the store, but signs were posted outside saying they were completely out of disinfectants and paper products.

WINK News spoke to one shopper who drove all the way from Alva because the stores in his area were sold out of eggs.

“I called Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Publix, all these, everyone, and nobody had eggs. I called here at about 8:30 a.m. and they said they have eggs, two dozen per membership, so I drove all the way from Alva to get two dozen eggs,” Tom Faasse said.

Lots of stores do have limits on some supplies. For example, Costco is not allowing shoppers to buy more than two cases of bottled water.
