  • Hey, guys, it's Casey with Cascadia Dispatch prepping for non preppers.

  • So I put up a video on Tuesday and it was me going through targets on Sunday night after the Corona virus hit Oregon for the first case and everyone kind of went bananas and panicked and going through Target looking at what was there.

  • So today I was gonna go to Costco.

  • Costco was like black Friday.

  • We actually went over the weekend, actually, Friday and Saturday, and it was like Black Friday.

  • It was also, according to everyone at the Hillsborough Costco, the largest sales day I think they had ever had almost doubled what they had done previously, according to the people that were working with their kind of glazed over faces, as everyone was asking, where we're toilet paper and hand sanitizer and everything else.

  • So what I want to do is go in.

  • I didn't actually need anything, but I needed something across the street, so I was gonna go in and just kind of see what the status is.

  • We've seen all the shortage is going on around the country, so I wanted to see if anything had been restocked if things were kind of looking better on the shelves than they had been, or if it was still pretty bleak and pretty bare like it was over the weekend.

  • So we're gonna go walk through and see what it looks like.

  • All right, so now that we are in Costco, when you walk around and see what the situation is, think everybody's heard the rumors and kind of rumblings of news reports.

  • So first off, if we're going to be quarantined, apparently they have lots of things for you to do with your garden.

  • They've got plenty of bulbs and plants and things.

  • So if we're all stuck at home, are working from home, we can at least work on making a lovely yard toe look at while we can't go out in public, which hopefully will not be the case.

  • But now that we know that a lot of companies are keeping people home and everybody's working from home for the next few weeks, especially for a lot of the companies in our area that is going to be a thing.

  • Let's go through some of these and get to the real excitement, which is the cleaning.

  • I'll I know everybody is curious about this.

  • So laundry soap.

  • So this is something that people were concerned about because some of it comes from China with manufactured in China.

  • That all seems to be okay.

  • Flushable wipes and garbage bags.

  • So there are some of those, um oh, I can already see this coming up.

  • And this is gonna be This is scary and hilarious all at the same time.

  • So look over here.

  • So this is Kleenex, All six boxes or whatever.

  • I left there.

  • So over the weekend when I was here said Thursday or friday, um, getting liquid soap and stuff.

  • I got a couple of boxes of Kleenex, and this is what they've got left.

  • So not a lot diapers.

  • I think they do have diapers, which is good.

  • So this is the funny part, So All right, so this is all diapers.

  • One of the things you notice is there is not a lot of back stocks.

  • And normally at Costco, all of this would be full.

  • That is not the case in this middle section.

  • It may look a little odd.

  • There's paper towels, paper plates, and there's charcoal bearcats.

  • And there's more garbage bags.

  • They have lots of garbage bags, but they don't have is this entire area is where toilet paper and paper towels used to be.

  • This is now paper plates, briquettes and garbage bags.

  • So any other day, you come to this Costco.

  • There are, uh, toilet paper and paper towels stacked to the feeling almost.

  • And there is not one role of anything here, for that is a big deal.

  • Here's baby wipes and and they also have these signs kind of different spots.

  • I just saw one there.

  • So they're limiting five years, remember?

  • So you can get some, but they they're limiting those where, as toilet paper and paper towels are just non existent.

  • Um, here's a little more Kleenex.

  • Um, so this is just in general.

  • They're limiting high demand items.

  • They have some commercial paper towels, so you could probably just get these and use them as like a roll and make your own sheets Not necessarily probably as absorbent or comfy as the standard bounties of the world of the Kirkland signature of paper towels.

  • But they do have a few of those napkins, so we're kind of in the world of using alternatives.

  • So you don't have paper towels, Use napkins.

  • If you don't have toilet paper, you can use flushable wipes.

  • Um, you can use baby wipes, so that's, I think, kind of where we are.

  • It's a bunch of napkins, um, which is good except again, empty pallets.

  • And this is a theme that I saw when I kind of seen other pictures where you've got some stuff, but you got empty pallets and you got no back stock.

  • So it's kind of whatever is left is whatever is left.

  • Let's look at cleaning supplies.

  • So again, a bunch of garbage.

  • That's I'm surprised that they have as many garbage bags as they dio I would expect in garbage bags to be one of those things that gets swept up as people want to make sure that they kind of contained garbage and things.

  • But no scrubbing bubbles.

  • What I'm not seeing any?

  • Where is any sort of 409 or, uh, Clorox cleaner?

  • Any sort of just your standard surface cleaner laundry stuff?

  • Sure dish stuff.

  • Sure.

  • Uh, stain remover.

  • That's not for a nine.

  • So this is all just dish soap, laundry soap, but no cleaning of any kind.

  • This is a funny one.

  • This is where Lacroix used to be.

  • So apparently Spindrift people really just don't care about.

  • And they would rather be locked in their houses in a quarantine without anything than that.

  • But Lacroix and, uh, bubbly or the Kirkland city's water that everybody wants.

  • So that's totally out.

  • Walk down here.

  • So one thing I saw out the end of this aisle, which I was curious about, and it looks like there might actually be a little bit is bleach.

  • So when I was here last week, bleach was gone.

  • And now there is about 20 boxes of bleach left.

  • So I know that they were getting an emergency shipment.

  • That's what they said over the weekend that they were going to get some Looks like they got it.

  • And what is left after a couple of days is 10 boxes of bleach.

  • So, um Oh, this is another interesting one.

  • All right, so this is a monster energy drink.

  • This is Pellegrino, Red Bowl, sparkling water.

  • You know what you don't see here?

  • Bottled water.

  • So this is where bottled water used to be.

  • This is the section formerly known as bottled water and It is now the section currently known as rock star and Red Bull Energy Drink land.

  • So there is no bottled water to be had at this Costco at all, which I don't really understand again, if you can think of the reasons other than just general of people panicking and trying to prepare for an emergency and not really thinking it through.

  • And so just going with food, water, shelter for their needs in this sort of situation, as opposed to an earthquake or a hurricane or something, where water service, electricity and utilities would be down, we have functioning running water.

  • Look, Oscar does not have those.

  • It's frozen chicken breasts, so frozen chicken looks like a lot of frozen meat.

  • Items are running pretty low.

  • It makes sense that people are kind of stocking up and putting him in freezers, hamburger Patties, uh, ground beef.

  • So people are stocking up and thinking, Okay, this may be a while where I maybe don't want to go grocery shopping corn dogs.

  • So Cristobal's sure fine corn dogs can't live without him.

  • Um, it's kind of interesting to see how people, when faced with a panic, are reacting.

  • I didn't think corn dogs would be high on the list.

  • But apparently corn dogs are at the top, along with bottled water and toilet paper coffee filters.

  • This is another one.

  • I don't know if this is people just stocking up because they want to make sure that they've got coffee in the morning.

  • Um, if they're planning on using it for some sort of filtration.

  • But it's surprising to me that coffee filters would be this low, especially with things like cups and plates.

  • And things are still not and coffee in general.

  • Looking at this I'll There seems to be quite a bit of coffee so that, um, in general, it looks like they are interested in making coffee, but everyone has plenty of it.

  • Um, better so looking at Staples, food, staples, things that people would use in general.

  • Here's an interesting one as we run around the corner for cereal.

  • So honey, Bunches of oats.

  • Nobody wants them.

  • Honey Nut Cheerios.

  • Everybody wants them regular Cheerios.

  • Nobody wants them.

  • So if there was ever a question about what was what was a favorite breakfast cereal?

  • Apparently, honey nut Cheerios is what people wanted, you know, squirrel away for in case of an emergency oatmeal squares, honey, Bunches of oats and people who could kind of take it or leave it raisin bran.

  • So that's apparently a real hot item.

  • Grape nuts.

  • It is.

  • It's really interesting.

  • I would've expected things like tricks and Coco Pops and kind of more sugary fund kid cereals to ggo.

  • Um, especially with kids at home.

  • I would expect that to happen, but it doesn't look like that's the case.

  • Also, I had expected granola and oatmeal.

  • There actually is oatmeal.

  • Not a lot of the steel cut oatmeal over here, so that's running kind of low.

  • But I would have expected that to be almost gone, because it's something you could store for a really long time.

  • But apparently, honey nut Cheerios is what everybody wants again.

  • Looking at this, it's just so weird to see Costco with just these really empty, empty shelves.

  • I mean, they're storing ladders and empty pallets and things, but what you don't see is food anywhere.

  • So I mean, become a Costco regularly.

  • I don't know when the last time it was that they had chocolate syrup in two pallets on aisle, usually that would be one pallet because I've got something else next to it.

  • But it's obvious that they're trying.

  • Thio, um, they're trying to make the aisles look full with what they've got.

  • And so you're seeing.

  • I'm seeing a lot of places where items were duplicated for juices and things for kids, so those have been kind of picked apart and again, I mean, you can see the ceiling through those shelves.

  • It's just weird.

  • It's just so weird to see that fancy Lacroix.

  • So people wanted the regular Lacroix faints with Korea, they could have cared less.

  • They at least have some of that.

  • They prefer the regular Lacroix to that energy drinks.

  • So we saw this really hit a target.

  • Not so much here.

  • Here we go.

  • So here's kind of basic baking, So basic cooking whales, olive oil, canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil.

  • All of this is leveled, and again there's we're not seeing three or six or eight pallets of it up above.

  • What you're looking at is what's available on, and obviously people are stocking up on mannequins have to cook at home, or they're gonna be staying at home.

  • Here's a new sign.

  • Limit of four units of right sugar and flour.

  • Remember per day.

  • So you can tell this is something they were preparing for.

  • Run on.

  • And they are.

  • There is some sugar available, kind of surprised that there's anything left baking soda.

  • All of these boxes are basically empty.

  • So you've got stuff down there so that both from a cleaning perspective but also from a food perspective, they actually have a little bit of flour, organic flour or almond flour.

  • Uh, here's some flowers.

  • The other thing that's interesting is, I don't remember ever seeing these brands before Costco, so I kind of wonder if these they need some sort of an emergency purchase tohave.

  • And what if they're just new vinegar?

  • So that's all that's left of the vinegar supply.
