Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe.
We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through June, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

Food Shopping 3/17

In response to 143856: Going shopping for groceries or not?, posted by Dennis on Monday, 16 March 2020, at 5:16 p.m.

A friend was at Safeway this morning around 7:30. Said it was a bit busier than normal but she got what she wanted. Didn’t mention any obvious product shortages. I was at Target around the same time and it too was somewhat busier for that time. I can’t speak to all items but shelves were emptier than normal but they were busily stocking so there are supplies if people don’t over buy.

Some frozen food compartments were almost empty but I did see meat and other items. Still had bread but less than normal. I was looking for specific things that I found so it depends. I don’t know about cleaning or sanitizing products as I wasn’t shopping for those. I did see people with toilet paper.

All anecdotal of course as it all depends on timing, a little more perhaps then normal. All the best.
