At the Greenbriar Kroger and grocery stores across the nation long, long lines now (and all day) after the federal government released WIC and food stamp payments for February. Could have avoided these lines if I had realized this impact.
And since it is late in the day, items as eggs and some produce (including kale) were sold out! Lots of bare shelves around the store. Yet another unintended consequence of the federal government shutdown over the past 25 days.
Thanks Kroger for calling in more workers!!
