For the Upper West Side, this registers as a catastrophe.
Shelves were bare on Thursday afternoon at Trader Joe’s on 72nd street and Broadway because the company’s supplier in Pennsylvania was hit with power failures, a cashier told Rebecca Frey. There were no deliveries to the store on Wednesday night; they are “hoping for today but not crossing their fingers.”
“Nuts, canned stuff, cereal, olive oil, pasta all running low or gone. Eggs and salad cases were still 1/2 full.”
Two months ago Trader Joe’s refrigerators lost power, causing a brief panic.
