Unbelievable easter Saturday

I could not believe it, everywhere locally had sold out of easter eggs by 2.00pm on Saturday afternoon, after working all week I thought I would have plenty of time saturday afternoon to buy the few easter eggs I needed "wrong" ! I searched high and low and travelled miles just to try and find a few Easter eggs. I tried Tesco in Ellesmere no joy co-op, spar, then onto Stans in St Martins all sold out. I then went to Morrisons in Oswestry which I had to pay £1.00 to park to be told sold out! I then tried Aldi no eggs! moving onto Sainsbury's all sold out, I asked a shop assistant why is everyone sold out completely of easter eggs by Saturday afternoon? the reply was well we have only got 5 more trading hours to go so we wouldn't stock too many! I could not believe that management of large supermarkets would get there figures so wrong how many eggs could they have sold in 5 hours! especially as no one else had any probably hundreds. I then moved onto Chirk Co-Op nearly had some luck I managed to get 4 gold chocolate bunny's with bells on so pressure was off slightly. I trid Gobowen no joy there, I could not believe it I knew I was going to be heading into Wrexham as my only hope. I went through Ruabon and stopped at the Co-Op there and to my suprise there were just a few by the entrance boxes a little battered but hey at this point I was grateful for anything. I really could not believe it so in future I will not make the same mistake and buy my eggs early I realise it was my fault for leaving it till Saturday but I wonder how many businesses lost so many sales that day and did they realise how much money they were making people spend trying to find an easter egg for there loved ones. Happy Easter everyone.
