Are People Hoarding Toilet Paper Again?

KFMB-TV – Re-Blogged From Headline Wealth

It feels like déjà vu . Some shoppers are reporting seeing a shortage of toilet paper again.

There are concerns people may be hoarding supplies because of another coronavirus resurgence and the uncertainty of the upcoming election.

“I think we’re going to have the same problem we had when the pandemic started,” said shopper Bill Birch.

On the Costco 92127 Facebook page, toilet paper is the topic. People discuss when it’s there and when it’s not, when it’s restocked and when it’s gone again. Someone even posted Tuesday that people were lined up this morning to buy more.

“People were told not to hoard, but I think it’s happening again,” said Birch.

New research suggests he may be right.

In a study called the “Back to Normal Barometer,” 52% of people said they plan to stockpile or have already stockpiled essential goods.

More than half of those surveyed said they did so over a concern for a COVID-19 resurgence, 23% said it’s due to uncertainty over the upcoming election and 19% said they’re worried for social unrest tied to racial concerns.
