Dear Costco Shoppers – Stay Calm: Canada will not run out of Toilet Paper
With all the panic surrounding Covid-19, many Costco stores have rationed Toilet Paper. Today at the Costco in Langley, they are limiting toilet paper purchases to one (1) per household. There are now line-ups to buy them stretch around the whole store making it hard to navigate through the aisles adding more stress to your usual Costco shopping trip. This weekend will no doubt be a challenging time to do any shopping. The lines to Costco have exceeded any line I have ever seen in recent memory.
I just want to let people know that from what I have read, Canada will not run out of toilet paper. There have been shortages in other countries, namely Australia, that rely on toilet paper manufactured in China, but, here in Canada, we have lots of paper manufacturing capabilities. According the the CBC, employees at paper manufacturing plants are working overtime to satisfy the extra demand and the supply chain is working well to continue to provide products to stores.
I understand that this is a stressful time for everyone and would like to remind that if you are shopping this weekend, to try your best to be kind and considerate to everyone.
