There was a rumor that off-island people, even other county residents, were "raiding" Pine Island's Winn-Dixie. It was suggested that this was a organized effort and not just an accident.
There is no way to tell if, or how much, was true. However, there is no doubt that it is true to some extent.
This IS a declared epidemic emergency situation. Winn-Dixie needs to begin a "no-hoard" policy: 1) One must show a Pine Island residency with name. 2) 1 bulk item or no bulk items. 3) No more the two regular size items of a particular category.
