People Reselling Essentials for Profit

Other

I’m in disbelief. ive Seen people trying to make profit on baby milk and nappie. this is awful. I hope people do not give in to these people. I hope no one buys their items and they go out of date. Absolutely disgusting behaviour.

And we claimed to be civilised 😕😕 after watching people like that I sometimes think does this earth deserve to have us? Do we deserve to be there?

Oh that's just terrible, it would be bad enough if it was hand wash etc but this disgusting.

In our area groups have been set up to drop of supplies to those that feel they don't what to get out. Not sure if it's the guilty ones that clear shelves now trying to redeem themselves.

I think it's despicable and, sadly, we will see a lot more of this selfish behaviour in the weeks to come. We should all be supporting each other not exploiting the situation. I can't understand the mentality of someone who would try to make a profit from items a baby needs. 😔

It isn't just the people who are profiting financially who are behaving in a disgusting manner, it is anyone who has contributed to shortages by buying more than they'd normally buy, or in some cases buying things they'd never have bought before, so depriving others of the chance to buy them.

davidstockport I think that it might just be people going into survival mode and wanting to make sure that people close to them are looked after.

TheChimp Another word for it is SELFISHNESS. They don't give a damn about anyone other than themselves and "perhaps" those close to them. I don't think starvation will ever enter into the equation. Some with a few trolleys packed full I saw on Friday looked like a bit of starvation - might have done them some good though. Although if starvation does occur and we resort to cannibalism THEY'RE FIRST!☺

davidstockport yeah People have become selfish the shops should Be limiting what people can buy. I can’t believe some people I wonder if these over buying people are donating to the food banks and homeless shelters some of us are lucky to fill our freezer and cupboards but some don’t and shop week by week pay check to pay check

TheChimp I read somewhere online that a couple tried to buy eight packets of 24 toliet rolls. Not even The Waltons need 192 toliet rolls in the absolute worst possible scenario of two weeks self isolation. Italians are allowed out to shops despite the 'lockdown' so there is no valid reason for all that panic buying.

TheChimp I will answer by saying that when I shopped (weekly shop) - I bought adequate food for those I need to feed, no more than normal. I refuse to be caught up in the frenzy of panic buying which has caused apparent shortages of some items. There are no shortages there are just as many as there were before the panic buying started - it's just that now they're in the cupboards of those who've created the supposed shortages.

I'll go as far as saying the only shortage is probably in the mentality of those who'll probably be eating out of date food (or throwing it away) after the shortage they've created is over.

Ann1984 The problem with "limiting" is that it can cause more to be sold. (it's a well known marketing trick) tell a person a thing is limited to TWO they'll buy TWO whereas if the same thing isn't limited they might only buy ONE - or not buy any at all.☺

I can understand people panic buying for their own families out of fear of a lockdown or isolation period but the people buying to sell at a profit are on another level. If we do go on lockdown thought they wont be able to sell it because there wont be any delivery service 🤣

It’s unfortunately human nature, and we live in a society where people are out for themselves. The local corner shops have hiked up their prices, so they’re enjoying their profits during these hard times

I think it's also human nature that when you go to the supermarket and see something on the shelf that was sold out last time you were there (such as Heinz Tomato Soup) you put two in your shopping trolley, instead of just one like you would normally buy.

You don't think you are a panic buyer or a hoarder, creating a shortage, but the fact is you are.

Millions of people buying a little extra, just in case, creates an even bigger problem that the panic bulk buying by thousands.

How many people can say honestly, hand on heart, that they haven't done this recently? For themselves, for their babies for their parents etc.

What's in your store cupbaord that you're not actually going to use this week or next?

I totally agree with this. There are so many greedy people out there. We are supposed to stick together and help each out instead of resorting to this.
