I hear back home there can be shortages . The American style market we go to can be feast or famine . On delivery day there is plenty of everything but after a day or two the stores have empty shelves .Hand sanitizer & toilet paper are i a hot items .

All shops here are currently well stocked Moi. I have started buying our loo roll on line from a company called Who Gives A Crap. I think it is an Australian company and available in several company. I like it because they don’t use plastic to wrap it and there is either paper made from recycled or bamboo. Your home country is at a different point in the C19 cycle. Looks like it’s going rampant in states like Texas and Florida.
Our shops seen to be well stocked. You can now have loo roll stacks it you want. It was a bit chaotic in our large supermarket on Friday. People just walking in whilst the 'doorperson' was chatting to a friend. The supervisors were running out like headless chickens saying that there should only be 150 in store and there were too many already. Prior to Friday there were arrows pointing to the direction that you should walk. Yet, at the checkout social distancing was enforced. Long queues to the back of the store.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.
Well - I planned to go shopping straight from work yesterday lunchtime, but due to the holidaymakers Tesco was rammed. Went down in the evening, and much quieter. Less queueing, no rules like before and no barriers outside. Seemed like it was back to normal. Hope this can continue, but some people just continue to get to close
