Supermarket prices

Just read an article RE:Supermarkets pricing, as everyone is probably well aware , supermarket owners are making an absolute killing, excuse the inappropriate pun.

The PM is saying she will look into it and no doubt Legislate , which good on her. She shouldn't really need to, as you would think... "FOODSTUFF'S"...." PROGRESSIVE"...should be compassionate in response to this "COVID19" situation, but here we are, and no surprise actually that these two monopolies play their game , and the average consumer have to pay the extravagant price hikes.
Yesterday morning I went to my local, "Tamatea Paknsave" and had 1st hand experience of these price hikes.
Greggs Coffee, usually $3.89 , yesterday $6.80 and the little sign with the price on it had "Everyday low price", what a joke.
I wont go through every price hike I noticed but found when I went to the check out my usual grocery bill of around $180- $200 indeed rose to $240.
Call it what you will.
In saying this, all praise to the supermarket workers who are doing an exceptional job in this time of crisis, they are at the forefront and risking their lives and there loved ones close to them when they return home from a hard days work to keep us consumers stocked up with our essentials.
I also commend all of my fellow neighbours for as I noticed probably 80% of people walking around the supermarkets were wearing facemasks, a big change to earlier on in the week when I only saw one person wearing a facemask.
Anyway I have digressed slightly. Supermarket prices will no doubt continue to rise and really not much we can do about it so "POSITIVE THINKING", Lets beat this "CURSED VIRUS".
On one good note I did notice a dozen of "Export Gold", has stayed at $19.99.

This week sees us all getting used to living at Alert Level 4. For this to work, we must all stick to the plan.

Stay home. It WILL save lives.
Let’s all remember why we are taking such extreme measures.
Staying home won’t always be easy. But the evidence tells us this is the best way to save the lives of other New Zealanders.

Finding our routines
It will take some time to build up new daily routines. That’s to be expected. We all need to be gentle with ourselves, and accept that things could be difficult for a while as we learn to adjust.

Looking after ourselves and others
Don’t forget to take time to look after yourself, and also to check-in on others. Asking someone how they are feeling is a good way to connect and show that you care.

We all need to stick to the plan
For this to work, and the effort we are all making to be worth it, we all need to stick to the plan, all the time. No exceptions.

Don’t move around
The virus is spread by us. So we all need to avoid moving around as much as possible. If you do go out for exercise or to get essential supplies, stay local. This is incredibly important. Don’t move between different areas.

Thank you for doing your bit
A massive thank you to everyone for working so hard to slow the spread of COVID-19. Together, we can and will save lives.
