@Caribou fully agree that cost wise water containers are a far cheaper way of storing a lot of water as compared to bottled water too. We have 10lts containers of water in the home with a spigot and also 2200lts of rainwater in tanks. @SheepdogPRS yes that was the case and all the more reason why we should be stocking in advance in our homes. A situation where no stocks are coming in creates the perfect opportunity for trading if you ran out of certain items and surviving off your own stocked items. In their case it was a case of what supermarket as they simply didn't have that option available to them. It is food for thought that we all have to think about is what if there isn't a supermarket open, stocked or had been previously pilfered is would we survive and for how long.
