A short video of a couple buying out the entire meat section of a Save-On-Foods in Lake Country has drawn the ire of the general public.
Taylor Born posted the video to her Facebook page and it’s quickly gone viral, with plenty taking the time to call it a despicable and unnecessary act.
“Wow, this is disgusting,” said one commenter. “They should be ashamed."
**We're sorry to inform you that the original video has been taken off Facebook. NowMedia has heard that the store's manager has now implemented limits on the amount of products each person or family can purchase at this time.**
Born said the couple “ran in front of other customers, cutting them off to take every last item” and even bragged to everyone about wiping out the stock and leaving “nothing left for anyone to get.”
They ended up going through the till with two full-sized grocery carts full of meat and Born says the cashier looked just as disgusted about it as the other customers in the store did.
While this incident was caught on camera, it appears as though similar acts are happening all over the place.
One woman told NowMedia that a man at the Save-On-Foods in Glenmore was seen buying well over 200 boxes of cereal.
She said stores need to implement limits to prevent people from pulling these kinds of stunts.
NowMedia has reached out to Save-On-Foods management and other popular grocery stores to see if any measures will be put in place to prevent this.
