Empty supermarket shelves as stocks run low in Tobago

TT Express

Shelves are empty at some supermarkets in Tobago and supermarket owners there are complaining that this is due to the current situation with the seabridge following the departure of the Super-Fast Galicia.

However, following his most recent visit to Tobago, Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley said in a news paper article, he was informed that there was no shortage of food.

News Power Now spoke to Plymouth resident Kimberly Stanisclaus who has a catering business in the sister isle. She says on her many visits to the supermarkets she has been unable to acquire stock.

Stanisclaus said simple items such as oil, flour and tin goods are scarce at supermarkets.

She indicated that persons will have to make several trips to a number of groceries before they can purchase basic items.

Stanisclaus said citizens are forced to preserve their existing food supply until the situation with the Super-Fast Galicia is fixed.
