Nashville, TN - According to witnesses, a local man wiped out the Kroger snack aisle after he misunderstood new reports regarding a global chip shortage.
A cashier for the grocer says Steve Miller came through her register nearly a dozen times with carts full of assorted chips. When she questioned him about it, he mentioned the global chip shortage he'd heard about on the news.
"I tried to explain the shortage was for computer chips, but he was adamant about stocking up," said the cashier.
Several shoppers who witnessed the man's frantic chip buying were spotted minutes later buying out the snack aisles of other nearby grocers.
Shopping experts say if this buying trend continues, there could be a local shortage of snack chips by the weekend.
