With millions of Australians stockpiling groceries, many have stormed into Kmart to buy pantry storage items as they rush to re-organise their kitchens with so much excess items.
Said one shopper on Facebook: ‘My local store was wiped out of storage containers and things for your pantry. I guess everyone is cleaning out their pantries after all their coronavirus shopping.
Added another: ‘Everyone’s cleaning out the pantries, all the storage stuff was gone at my store.’
Another unlikely item that’s missing from many stores? White towels.
‘I reckon mums are buying them and using them as nappies, because you can’t get them in shops,’ said one Kmart shopper. Said another: ‘Maybe people are using Kmart towels as toilet paper ... they’re cheap enough!’ wondered another.
All shoppers said that the beauty section of most of their local stores had been stripped also.
‘All the soap and hand sanitisers went straight away, which is to be expected,’ said one. ‘All the pads and tampons too,’ said another.
