I almost wonder if the stores don't do some of their own "it may run out" things on Facebook to spur sales.  Otherwise why would toilet paper just run out?  We are still the same amount of people using it.

Yeah, a guy would think that.   Just like the gas shortages...  Everybody suddenly wanting to fill their tank/ stock up on TP wipes out (ha ha ) the inventory.....

Strangely enough, there are a lot of tissue machines idled right now. The problem is that a major part of tissue demand is for away from home products. With people not traveling and eating at restaurants, bath tissue used at hotels and commercial establishments is not being consumed. With the restaurant trade down, napkin demand is down. People not working and working at home has also cut into the demand for the away from home products and increased demand for at home products. The machines that are idled were dedicated to those markets and it’s not as easy as it seems to convert them to run products for at home use.
The thought of running out of toilet paper caused increased retail sales which in turn led to more demand. A snowball effect.  Kind of like ammo shortages—as people stock up product on the shelves dwindles and the next shoppers see that and stock up, too.
On another Covid note, we found out last night that a former neighbor was diagnosed and transported to a hospital in the cities, and is on a ventilator. He’s in his 80s and has kidney issues, so it’s not sounding good.

At the waite park costco when walking in they had a big billboard up with a listof out of stock and in stock items I thought wax pretty neat. Only 2 things at the time out of stock. Both there and cash wise didn't have any of the lysol type wipes of any brand.

Both the wife and I made a trip to the local grocery store and didn't notice anything out but she said there where limits in place. Me  :doofus: I didn't notice, I was on a mission for just one thing. :rotflmao:

Thanks, Mike and Glen. Makes you think. I know of a few people who have been exposed, and one that actually tested positive, but this is the only case where I personally know someone hospitalized and on a ventilator. I guess his exposure was at church.

Yes good luck to your friend.  I have a friend that is trying to get over it and he has other health issues.  I do have a friend that died from it too.  It is not a joke as many still think.  Too bad.

I've heard no one say it's a joke..  I hear more complaining about politics than any thing.....  just my 2 cents...............

Took the warden to Mankato grocery shopping. Toilet paper was all wiped out as a manner of speaking. People are getting in the hoarding mood again.

TP was sure rolling out of Costco this week.   
:scratch: Our little Fareway & Hy Vee's shelves are well stocked down here, there has been a limit on it for ~ a week already though. Could be that there's so many more people full of c#%p up there, especially around St Cloud. :confused:                              ;) :rolleyes: :laugh: :laugh:
