Default Store shelves empty of paper products AGAIN!

What has happened in the last week that has prompted a rush once again on paper products? Store shelves in Target and Colony Publix are nearly empty once again of toilet paper and paper towels. Those are the only two stores I've been to in the past week (yesterday) but I'm afraid that is becoming a trend and we will see wide spread hoarding again. Hurricane season is just about over. So....just wondering why empty shelves again?

Because people take more than they need. Inconsiderate.

I understand the issue is hoarding but, my original post was to figure out why the hoarding AGAIN? I honestly do not think it is a supply issue because why, all of a sudden, would there be a supply issue?

I just read read on another thread that some of the stores are limiting capacity again due to the pandemic kicking up into high gear. Now I understand the reason for the hoarding.

Because this:

Dr. Michael Osterholm, a coronavirus advisor to President-elect Joe Biden, said a nationwide lockdown would help bring the virus under control in the U.S.

Biden Covid advisor says U.S. lockdown of 4 to 6 weeks could control pandemic and revive economy

Of course that was 4 days ago and when they saw that it went over like a lead balloon, they've been frantically backpedaling for the past 48 hours.

Believe it or not toilet paper and paper towel shortages started showing strain in August according to producers' demand was up about 16% in some areas of the nation. Supply chains adjust accordingly supplying those areas.

Stating the obvious.......as would six weeks, eight weeks, ten weeks.



He said it, was not a recommendation, is NOT in line with Joey's view.

"empty" and "nearly empty" are not the same thing. perhaps it was your intent to cause a slight panic.
