“Due to panic purchasing, Walmart has opened a second checkout lane”

Walmart almost never, it seems, opens enough checkout lanes. “Update: Walmart prepares for the beginning of school year rush by opening a second register” was posted on Twitter by BSU Daily Snooze on August 21, 2012. “It was so slammed at Walmart today that they briefly considered opening a second checkout lane” was posted on Twitter by Patrick Mead on December 19, 2016.

“Due to panic purchasing, Walmart has opened a second checkout lane” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on March 11, 2020. The 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak had caused panic purchasing.
