“Due to panic buying, Walmart has opened a second register”

Walmart stores have a reputation for not having enough registers open. “Due to panic buying, Walmart has opened a second register” is a joke that has been printed on many images. The joke became popular at the start of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

“#BREAKING Because of ‘panic buying’, @Walmart has decided to open a second register #truestory #coronavirus #COVID19” was posted on Twitter by D on March 11, 2020. “Due to panic buying, #Walmart has opened a second register. #CoronaVirusUpdate” was posted on Twitter by Christina4#Trump#Maga later on March 11, 2020. “Due to panic buying, Walmart has opened a second register” was posted on Twitter by ᗷᖇIᗩᑎ ᖴᒪᗩKE on March 11, 2020. “Due to panic buying, the Walmart has opened a second register” was posted on Twitter by Bob Golen on September 20, 2021.

“Due to panic purchasing, Walmart has opened a second checkout lane” and “Due to panic purchasing, Walmart has opened a second register” are other forms of the saying.

“Area 51 is where they keep all of the Walmart cashiers” and “Walmart will be closed Christmas Day so both cashiers can be with their families” are other jokes about Walmart cashiers.
