Late-night Christmas shoppers ‘scrambled for sprouts’ and queued for HOURS

PANICKED shoppers were left in a “cart rage” as they scrambled for last-minute Christmas items – with some “fighting for Brussel sprouts.”

Supermarket customers scrambled for food as they tried to shop as much as they could before the stores closed yesterday.

Last-minute shoppers are said to have queued for hours to get their hands on the food items

The situation at a Dublin supermarket is described as ‘f*** g bedlam’

Some of the worst scenes were reported at Dunne Stores in Blanchardstown, Dublin, when “hundreds of people” gather to receive their last-minute gifts.

The situation was described by one bystander as “f***g bedlam” with small quarrels breaking out as early as 8am.

One user wrote on Twitter: “Ouls fighting over Brussels Sprouts and waiting in line for the fleas to block every aisle with the rampage of carts.

“I have to leave in five minutes.”

Horror footage later emerged of ques slicing through the mall as exhausted workers tried to manage the huge crowds.

“Let me tell you. Last minute Christmas shopping in Blanch is not a vibe,” one customer tweeted.

“An hour and a half in line at Dunnes. Be nice to the retail guys, the guys they’ll be fired. “

However, while some customers were unimpressed by the chaotic scene, others saw the humorous side.

“My turkey was out of date while waiting in line at Dunnes this morning,” joked one customer.

While another added: “I survived the big Dunnes Christmas store in 2021.”

The final night of mayhem followed, despite millions of people across the UK and Ireland choosing to shop online amid the rise of the Omicron variant.

In some cases, angry customers blame supermarkets for “ruining” Christmas with substitutes and wrong orders. While others are said to have no food.

But shoppers directly cannot escape a similar fate when they are greeted with empty shelves and scarce stock, especially in Tesco stores.

Earlier this week, an Asda spokesperson spoke to Sun to address the supply issues.

This week, we will be delivering Christmas orders to more than a million homes across the country, and while we strive to ensure every delivery is perfect, delays or shortages have been reported, they said. Orders can sometimes affect a small number of orders.

“We’re reaching out to customers who didn’t receive the turkey as planned to try and buy them as soon as possible.”

The Sun also asked Tesco and Sainsbury’s for comment.
