A supermarket in Dundalk, Ireland, created a hilarious video to promote their flour stock in the store stemming from fears of shortages and price hikes of the commodity.
SuperValu Fairways produced a mock-drug deal video where, after collecting produce at the docks, the store manager is presented with a large bag of flour and told that it’s “good stuff” and that he would “get serious money for that.”
The store manager replies: “We’re not going to rip the customer off. We’re only going to charge €1.59 for 2 kg”.
He continues by saying that the store has been successfully supplying customers with bread, pasta and toilet roll, and now they also have flour.
As people rushed to panic-buy items when the country rolled out restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19, flour was one of the items that people feared could face both shortages and raised prices. Credit: SuperValu Fairways via Storyful
