This is Leslie Harris, and people are getting more and more concerned with the threat of the Coronavirus.
There has been a spike in the purchase of household items like toilet paper, paper towels, and bottled water, as well as hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes. In fact, some stores have begun to put a limit on the supplies along with some staples like sugar and rice, and there have been reports of people filling their carts with hand-sanitizer, and more reports of people price-gouging hand sanitizer online!
Now I don’t know if it’s a good thing or not, but I’ve got more than enough food to feed myself and my family for a week or two, between what’s in my pantry and what’s in my 6 foot freezer. But now I’m thinking that I might go out and buy a case or two of toilet paper and paper towels. Especially the toilet paper!
By the way, this is the hand-sanitizer we have here at The River. Think a half-gallon will tide us over?
