Groceries across the country are filled with empty shelves.
John Catsimatidis owns and is the CEO of the Gristedes grocery shop chain in New York City. He claims that his shelves are empty due to sick people calling him.
“Truckers are calling in sick, people running warehouses calling in sick. It’s the Omicron scenario,”He spoke to Inside Edition.
Grocery stores are experiencing a shortage of eggs, chicken, beef, and pork. This has led to large price increases, with many items increasing 20% or more in the past 12 months.
The shelves will remain empty for at most one month, until the Omicron surge subsides.
“Stock up,” Catsimatidis said. “Fill up the freezer, the fridge, if you have a favorite food buy it when you see it and don’t wait, it might not be there tomorrow.”
