With Halloween just one day away, it appears Yellowknife is out of pumpkins.

Last-minute pumpkin carvers tipped Cabin Radio off to the shortage yesterday when stores began to run out.

When contacted, the Co-op reported they ran out over the weekend and will not be getting anymore in, while both Independent grocers said they also have no pumpkins left.


“We don’t have [real] pumpkins, but we have the plastic ones,” said a Walmart employee, offering one possible, disheartening solution.
