Panic Buying Sweeps Stores

In the News

Panic buying continued to sweep parts of the country over the weekend, with many shoppers buying many everyday essentials in excess as they prepared for periods of isolation during the coronavirus crisis.

Despite the highly unusual move of all major operators signing up to a letter urging customers to shop responsibly and ensure supplies are shared out fairly, some customers continued to stockpile.

Many supermarkets are already rationing items and turning new customers away to cope with demand.

In Hull shoppers criticised panic buyers as many shelves across the city’s supermarkets stood empty.

I find it embarrassing, the same as I do at Christmas when people shop like the stores are shutting for a month, rather than one or two days.

You should see my local Tesco nearly empty altogether. It's ridiculous all this panic buying.
