Can't fathom this, it would make sense if coronavirus caused a violent attack of the skits. But it doesn't.
Baffled me at first but now I think -
[1] Bog roll cheaper than tissues
[2] Self isolation of two weeks could be on the horizon for some.
[3] The government should publish 'Blue Peter' type projects using toilet roll tubes for those idle moments at home (athough this could cause a run on sticky back plastic too).

Sainsburys at Pinhoe had empty shelves where there would normally be Andrex and yet right next to that there were $hitloads of own brand toilet roll , Obviously if people wanted toilet rolls that badly they could have bought those.
Very strange. Is there a price difference ?

Shopped there this morning. Lots of empty shelves around the tinned food area as well. Didn't buy any loo rolls.

Anyone who buys the sun needs saving too.

Although arguably I could say that about any newspaper.
