According to the City of Stamford, there is no reason to panic over toilet paper.
According to the city, Stamford food retail stores continue to report NO SUPPLY CHAIN SHORTAGES. Inventory at local stores may have been depleted due to higher demand, but at this time store owners anticipate restocks of their inventory in the coming days.
Residents who plan to buy toilet paper in bulk should be aware:
- There have not been any reports of supply chain shortages of toilet paper in the country. Whereas previous emergencies have caused shortages — such as in 2012 when there was a gasoline shortage due to gasoline refineries damaged by Hurricane Sandy — toilet paper continues to be produced and delivered to stores.
- Additionally, a website called “How Much Toilet Paper” allows residents to calculate how long their supply of toilet paper would last.
