No Loo Rolls.

Hope you all have a good stock of loo rolls, I noticed the shelve in Tesco this morning that holds them was looking a bit empty as the panic buying begins.
I have bought a pack every time I was in the shop the last few months....just incase and I'm glad I did. Also I've been buying extra dog food and chews, the Hairy one won't understand why he's got no dinner, so I'm making sure he does have.
The story may just be another scare story BUT, what if it's not?

Re: No Loo Rolls.

I heard this on the news the other day. Apparently its limited to the makers of Cushell because of the type of paper they use.

Andrex etc should be fine

I don't suppose Cushelle will be making extra to meet demand by any chance?

Re: No Loo Rolls.

Who are the idiots who are panic buying exactly? What's wrong with these impractical, blinkered fools?

As soon as I saw the story on the news I knew there would be people out there buying them up. Of course we don't know if the company has said this just to sell more.

What's funny is that we will be left with all those coloured ones that no one normally buys.

I don't think buying an extra pack of both toilet rolls and dog food each week can be called panic buying. I was just making sure we had enough come the worst.
