No sliced to order deli - only pre-sliced and pre-packaged, limited choices.
Fresh fish is only available pre-packaged.
No singles of rolls, donuts, only pre-bagged in units of 4-6 items each.
No bulk/self service nuts and related snacks.
Still significant shortages of or no bleach, disinfectant cleaners, dish washing soap, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, tissues, liquid and bar hand soap. Laundry detergent in limited supply, some brands/varieties not available.
Vacuum packed meats like hotdogs in limited supply.
Pasta, tomato sauce, peanut butter (especially creamy style), certain cereals, popcorn, canned meat and veggies, frozen pizza and veggies, coffee at low inventories. Flour, sugar, salt, pancake mix, bottled water, sports drinks scarce. Plenty of soda.
Fresh fruit and vegetables are still in good stock, although some tight inventories of potatoes. As many items only keep for a few days and many trying to not shop as often, maybe 1 time a week.
I would also note that many stores have cut back on discounts on many items, suspended price promotions and discounts.

The ones that are not vine ripened or organic, especially in the off season are actually green and turned red by methane gas and why they have no flavor. You're basically eating a green one but psychologically you think you can taste it because it's been turned red by methane.

I buy seafood and eat that first and then eventually end up eating steak towards the end. Any produce that looks like it might not last will be cooked and then you can eat that for an extra day or two.
I am going to try Kroger pickup next week. I'll see how that goes. I'm already not too happy about it. I placed the order yesterday for this upcoming Thursday and they already charged my card. I understand wanting to charge before they pick it but 6 days early is a bit absurd.
