Need To Find A Turkey Last Minute In The Quad-Cities? TWO Stores Hit The Spot!

All is not lost, procrastinators! If you’ve let your thanksgiving planning go to the very last minute, if you desperately searched around at various spots today for a turkey without having any luck (as we did and reported on earlier!), don’t fret! There are TWO spots in the Quad-Cities where we found turkeys just a little over an hour ago! Moline HyVee, at 4200 John Deere Road, had been dry of turkey earlier in the day, but a few new birds must’ve flown in from the back storage because as of 8 p.m. tonight they had a half-dozen turkeys available for purchase. HyVee also had a... Read More

Quad-Cities' River Bend Foodbank Seeing Record Demand Since Pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic has not only devastated the U.S. economy and cost more than 260,000 American lives, it is driving record hunger in the greater Quad-Cities region. “The number of people who don’t have enough food to eat in the QCA has increased by over 50 percent since Covid,” Mike Miller, president/CEO of River Bend Foodbank, said this week. “There are now almost 150,000 in the 23 counties we serve, 1 in 7 people and 1 in 4 children who are food insecure.” “The Foodbank has responded with record-setting food distributions in April, May, June, and July, with over 2 million meals... Read More

Still Looking For A Turkey In The Quad-Cities? They Might All Be Gobbled Up

Thanksgiving turkeys and supplies have been gobbled up quickly off Quad-Cities grocery store shelves, so if you’re still on the hunt for a bird, you might have tough time. A trek to three area HyVee and two Aldi stores and a Target on the Illinois and Iowa sides of the river found ALL six of them SOLD OUT of turkeys, as of this morning. As for other supplies, the Aldis in Davenport and Rock Island were also sold out of cranberries, mashed potatoes and some stuffings, although still had gravy and a good supply of vegetables. The HyVees in Moline, Davenport and Milan were likewise out of cranberries,... Read More

Caribou Was More Than Just A Coffee Shop, It Was A Part Of A Life Now Gone

Caribou Was More Than Just A Coffee Shop, It Was A Part Of A Life Now Gone

We’re all maps of our experiences, our lives a tapestry of our time spent. Every second, every moment of them. Those reflections of paths taken and choices made, big and small, lead to who we are, in ways big and small. Those decisions can be huge – who we decide to love, to marry, to live with. Or they can be small – the places we frequent, the habits we hold, the culture we imbibe. For more than a decade, Caribou Coffee was a huge part of the mural of my life, and my son’s. And while the closing of a coffee shop may seem small in the larger picture of things, it’s still something. Something... Read More

Is The Quad-Cities Headed For Another Toilet Paper Shortage?

Is “Tiger King” coming back too? With covid numbers spiking again, general unrest about the election and the political and economic landscape, and more state restrictions looming this week, the familiar spectre of dwindling supplies on shelves — particularly toilet paper — is starting to loom in some area stores. A visit to four area locations — a Target, a Walmart, and two HyVee stores — showed that shelves in some are starting to look a little short, and one store — the Moline Target on John Deere Road — has already put up signs limiting customers... Read More
