Some Stores Preparing for Another Shortage of Essential Items
When the pandemic started, I think we all learned that there are hoarders amongst us. We all remember how hard it was to get toilet paper, paper towels and hand sanitizer. One thing that stood out is that idiot that bought hundreds of bottles of hand sanitizer and tried to sell them online for 4 times the price. Price gouging, ugh. He was denied and it was taken down and he was stuck with them all. Karma, huh?
Well CNN is reporting that
Several leading grocery chains are reimposing limits on key items such as toilet paper, paper towels and disinfecting wipes, hoping to keep their shelves stocked and prevent shoppers from hoarding as they did when the pandemic began in the spring.
I really hope we learned our lesson from last spring and think about other folks needing what we need. This of course is a time we all need to stick together. There will be plenty to go around as long as we all follow the rules.
Supply chains are starting to feel the stress again as the pandemic seems to be getting worse, and employees across the country are working diligently to keep up with the demand.
60% of shoppers say they plan on stocking up heavily this winter, so be prepared for strict limits so we all can have plenty.
Do you plan on stocking up more? Also, do you think that these limits are good to do? I sure think so. Let's all be safe and get through this with common sense.
