A mum has been furiously slammed online for attempting to offload 378 rolls of ‘excess’ toilet paper on Facebook which she says she ‘no longer needs’.
Shops and supermarkets saw their supplies of toilet roll stripped from the shelves with shoppers being accused of panic-buying during the coronavirus crisis.
Some retailers began placing limits on a number of essential items each customer could purchase, including toilet roll, pasta and tinned goods.
With the measures seeing pressure on supermarkets ease in many places, it appears it’s left some shoppers looking to move on their unneeded supplies.
A mum from Morayfield, Australia, posted to say she was selling 21 packs of 18 rolls of toilet paper – reported to retail for under £5 ($10) – for about £10.
One replied to say:
No, I will criticize you for hoarding that much toilet paper and jacking up prices. You have 21 packs of 18, that’s 378 rolls of toilet paper and WAY more than any family of any size will ever need (during this time).
Another user wrote:
You’re a piece of s*** opportunist.
A second asked:
How can you no longer need toilet paper? You hoarded it, now deal with the consequences.
Most countries during a lockdown actually leave the supermarkets open as essential services so you wouldn’t have to panic buy anything.
