Meaning that's how long their backlog is for online orders, or they're now allowing people to place orders that far in advance?

Means you can't book a pick up until the 1st

If you like quality, and are not overly price-sensitive, the Italian Market on Fairmont/Southland was well-stocked and pretty much empty at 10 am today.

If anyone has a lead on some powdered milk (skim preferably) that is either within an hours drive of Calgary or will ship I'd be very grateful! I went out yesterday for the first time in 8 days and for the first time in my life felt incredibly anxious. Milk is really the only item that will need regular stocking in our house and I'd love to have a supply of powdered so I can just stay home for a while.

Just because you go through it quick? Fairlife tends to last longer then regular milk if you're worried about spoilage

Figure I'll post this here too. Calgary Co-op is increasing the pay for all frontline employees by $2.50/hr during the pandemic. Spoilered for size.

NSFW!

Amazon ships some out of WInnipeg.

Yeah pretty much. We all drink a fair bit of it and are stocked up pretty well on everything else. I'd imagine we could stay in the house for a couple of months and eat pretty well with everything in our deep freeze and two fridges. Lack of fresh produce would suck, but we have tins and frozen. Milk is the only item we would have to go out for and click and collect is already a week out on pickup times.

Try giving Amaranth or Community Natural a call they both normally carry it in bulk (I use it for baking).

You can freeze milk, if you have enough room in your deep freeze.

On Friday when I checked PC express, the earliest was the 24th for pickup (4 days). April 1st is 7 days now. While this is indeed kinda annoying, it is encouraging that people are taking this seriously to create this type of backlog.

Here's hoping that Loblaws and other stores like Walmart considers expanding the PC express/Click and Collect concept significantly somehow (ie: shutting down a store or two to field pure pick up orders).

I've never done it but my mom has frozen milk in the Cartons. She says they haven't exploded but would advise caution if using plastic. Another option is to substitute almond milk in smoothies and baking.

Or they're tired of seeing empty shelves and hoarders and just went online.

Another one I'll throw out there is https://cultivatr.ca/

I haven't used them but was planning on it for a couple food projects I (had) on the go. They're pushing to get a lot of the local supply that would have been going into now-closed restaurants into peoples homes instead. Again, not cheap but they seem to have stock and supporting local right now is more important than ever if you have the means.

As far as frozen milk goes, I always take it out of the package and put it in mason jars. Leave the lid on loosely then tighten when frozen. I've split plastic bottles as well as nalgenes, even with the lid open. Cardboard bulges enough I wouldn't trust it when thawing out.

I have a strong desire to head to Bulk Barn to load up on some candy but I also feel like I probably shouldn't. Has anyone been lately? Do they still restock regularly? I received an email today about new store policies such as apparently the store employees now do all the scooping.

Should I try to go to Bulk Barn? Am I being selfish by wanting to get some candy?

There’s never a time where it’s wrong getting candy

Unless you’re a diabetic
