Last-minute Yellowknife pumpkin shoppers found the city’s patch to be bare on Wednesday.
Two days before Halloween, residents reported a severe pumpkin shortage in the North.
Moose FM called four of the city’s largest stores. Both of Yellowknife’s Independent grocers and the city’s Walmart confirmed they had no pumpkins remaining; the Co-op could not be reached.
However, all is not lost, Charlie Brown.
The Independents both expect new stock in the very near future, possibly even by the time you reach the store today.
A Walmart employee said the store would not be replenishing its stock.
