The fear of a shortage of products due to the strike of transporters causes customers to stock up on basic products.
From the official Twitter account of Mercadona they deny the information of another user who commented that the products are gradually taken from the shelves in stores to gradually increase prices such as oil and milk.
“Attention! The information that we are regulating the sale of products and that we do it to raise prices is completely false. Every day, we open our stores giving the best service. We recommend not hoarding. Thanks to our customers”, tweeted denying the information of a rise in prices due to the strike of carriers.
On Twitter they also ask customers who go to supermarkets not to buy compulsively: “We recommend not to engage in hoarding”.
The indefinite strike of the carriers continues another day and for this Friday a demonstration is planned in the Paseo de la Castellana of Madrid.
Mercamadrid continues to operate, although at 80%, a lower percentage than a normal week in March, but better than the previous week. There are difficulties for the exit of trucks that transport the merchandise to other provinces such as Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Basque Country, Andalusia and the Canary Islands.
