How long will "panic" buying last?

It is not the whole of the Nation that is packing it's Larder Shelves.

Assuming that the Supermarket shelves are being restocked on a regular basis, do you think that some sort of normality will resume.

After all, How many Rolls of Loo paper does one need.

Went into the small local Co-Op this morning for my paper and I was the only customer. Shelves all stocked, plenty of loo rolls, milk, eggs, bread so no problems. The local Sainsburys had husge queues waiting to go in !

Went to Tesco this morning and walked straight in. Everything we wanted was available except flour and yeast for making bread.

People still seem to be bulk buying toilet rolls - what's up with them?

Pine Man - That's because toilet paper is the new currency!

Waitrose in Rickmansworth this morning was pretty well fully stocked. Had to queue as they were only allowing a certain amount of customers in at any one time. However once through the doors it was just like normal service.

Perhaps the lemmings have all exhausted their cupboard space with their toilet roll frenzy?

My wife received the first Government free food parcel today. Quite heavy, mainly tinned stuff , potatoes etc. I am trying to find a way to pay but if I can’t find it. I’ll make a donation to a suitable charity.

I don't usually go to Tesco but Morrisons and Asda had massive queues at 11am,so I nipped in Tesco there was a queue of about 12 all in seperate spaces,a Tesco employee asking if we wanted a trolley which he cleaned with wipes and after 10 mins I was in,I have to say most things were available even toilet roll,that I didn't need so I passed on it

They're plenty of staff showing you where to go what to do I was very impressed it ran like clockwork
