Ive seen two instances of people buying huge amounts of dry foods over the past 2 years.

I watched a group of several grown men and women systematically clean a local grocery store out of pretty much every can, every bag of rice, every kind of food that could be stored for a decent period of time, in about 2 hours.

The previous day, the same group had spent untold thousands of dollars at the Super WalMart on dry groceries.

They probably spent 25,000 dollars total....

In fact I posted about it here...

I would say that with just in time delivery of food stuffs, just a 0.5% increase in sales would result in them running out of certain items eventually...

I can tell you that with the "herd mentality" that the more people who notice that Sam's is out of rice and beans, the more people will go out of their way to purchase rice and beans wherever, whenever and at whatever price they can get it for.
