New footage has emerged revealing the unbelievable rush for toilet paper at one Aldi store amid coronavirus panic shopping.
The unearthed CCTV footage shows just how quickly the supermarket’s generous stock of toilet paper was wiped out just minutes after the store’s doors opened.
WATCH: Shoppers rush for toilet paper in Aldi stampede:
Hundreds of Aldi shoppers can be seen rushing down the aisle, loading up on multiple packs of toilet paper before rushing to the checkout. Some customers can even been seen heading back to the toilet paper section to pick up even more packs, competing with other shoppers as they scramble to get their hands on the coveted item.
Since being released on Facebook by user Clayton Gubbels, the video has attracted more than a million views and thousands of comments from disbelieving Australians.
‘So sad to watch this,’ said one. Added another: ‘Do these people have a 20 person household...why would you need any more than one pack of toilet rolls...bloody embarrassing 😳 ‘
Said a third: ‘This is unbelievable. World’s gone mad.’
The video footage comes just days after prominent Sydney real estate auctioneer Damien Cooley auctioned off a 24 pack of toilet roll for a ridiculous price.
The auction took place outside Woolworths in Sydney’s affluent Double Bay, with the winning bidder paying $1000 for the loo paper. What the!
