Shopping for groceries has been a lot trickier as of late with many people panic-buying supplies due to coronavirus outbreak. Pasta, rice, paper towel and mince meat has been nowhere to be found. Who would’ve thought toilet paper would become the most sought-out item across the nation?
After weeks of chaos in major supermarkets across the countries, Prime Minister Scott Morrison put his foot down on the public… and it seems to have worked. Not only have people calmed down, but supermarkets are reportedly returning to business as usual!
“I’m pleased to report that certainly the shopping through our supermarket business has returned somewhere towards normal, and that’s allowed the teams with all the hard work they’re putting in to get stock back into the system,” Coles Chief Operating Officer Matt Swindells said told the Today Show on Monday morning
Mr Swindells said there was still a long way to go before shelves are fully restocked and he’s hoping the behaviours we saw in supermarkets don’t transfer to bottle shops, which were packed on Sunday night.
Woolworths and Coles are working with the government to handle logistics when it comes to border closures, which are now coming into places across the country.
