Grocery Shelves Are Emptying Fast Due to Omicron Variant Surge

January 11, 2022

Empty shelves are a common sight in grocery stores around the country. John Catsimatidis, owner and CEO of the Gristedes grocery store chain in New York City, says his shelves are empty because people are calling in sick due to the Omicron variant and it is having a ripple effect. Grocery stores are low on eggs, chicken, beef, and pork, and the shortages have led to big price increases with many of the items up 20% in the last year. Shelves are expected to stay empty for at least another month.
