Dozens of shops across Dumfries and Galloway are reported to have been without bread or milk supplies for the past two days, as the bad weather stops deliveries.
Areas affected are Nithsdale, Annandale, Eskdale and Kirkcudbrightshire.
This was the scene in Tesco in Dumfries.
Supermarket chain Tesco has scrapped plans for a convenience store in Carlisle.
It won planning consent in January 2011 for a store on a former bowling green behind the Horse and Farrier pub in Wigton Road.
The decision comes as the brand has announced losses of £6.4 billion - one of the biggest in UK corporate history.
