Grocery stores stock toilet paper in case of 2nd wave
Could we see another toilet paper shortage in the Hudson Valley? Local grocery stores say they will be ready this time - if and when a second COVID-19 wave arrives.
As COVID-19 cases tick upward again, several grocery chains across the country are stockpiling products that sold out in early spring. Some grocery stores say keeping a step ahead of inventory orders for fall and winter months is key. “We do book trailers and full containers of stuff ahead of time so we don't run into the same problem that we had when this whole thing started in the beginning,” says grocer Angelo Paravalos.
A recent poll showed more than half of Americans say they already have or plan to stockpile food items, paper and cleaning supplies in preparation of a possible second wave of COVID-19.
