I'm surrounded by more farmers markets than grocery stores, but I know they keep the building in the park filled with junk food. So, that might be my initial run, then I'll take off from there with a caseload of Snickers.

You are right. Most will go the obvious places first. Places like Hobby Lobby and Michael's and Jo Ann Fabric also have candy making supplies, canning supplies and tools such as the jewelry pliers also. They also have snack merchandise up front and thus they would have some in the warehouse in the back and these places would not be the first places for most people to go....so they would take longer to get emptied out.
Keep this in the back of your head when everything goes to pot...
I thought I knew my grocery store then they up and rearranged everything while I was gone. Now I don't know where anything is and the layout makes no sense to me. Well, except for the Starbucks counter, I found that all right lol.
I ran to Wal Mart yesterday to pick up some sewing supplies for the new purse my friend and I are making (AKA - honing our zombie survival skillz by cornering the market on bag/clothing production). While I looked for temporary spray adhesive, I spied quite a few nifty little survival items along the way. Things that usually... I had no clue the store even carried. Like:
1. Exacto knives. Sharp little buggers... good for cutting, and in a dire survival attempt... stabbing... I also envisioned them as making decent crossbow bolts... 2. Pliers - needle nose pliers to be exact. In the jewelery making section. Millions of uses... never know when you will have to do your own stitching of a wounded comrade... 3. Unexpected sources of food - the party supply/bridal section has icing (some just has to be mixed with water) - cake confections, party favors (in all arrays of candy). It's not good healthy substantial food - but if it's some icing or starve.... And how many people are going to raid the grocery for icing? Thinking outside the box.
Anyway it got me to thinking. Do you know your grocery store? Know the layout of where everything is (should be). Do you know the exits and entrances. Do you know the quickest way to grab all you need and get out? You never know when you will need this info....
