Like many grocery shoppers this weekend flocking to supermarkets to stock up on supplies for the coronavirus outbreak, Inquirer staff photographer Tom Gralish encountered entire sections of stores emptied of hand sanitizers, pasta, rice, canned goods, and toilet paper. But, he noticed, not everything was flying off the shelves.

So he photographed the items that nobody seemed desperate to grab — products that even panic buyers didn’t want.

His unscientific survey took place on Saturday evening at the Acme in Haddon Commons on Cuthbert Boulevard in Haddon Township, the ShopRite in Garden State Pavilion on Route 70 in Cherry Hill, and the Wegmans in Towne Place at Garden State Park, also on Route 70 in Cherry Hill.
