Supermarkets have already introduced strict product limits in their stores and it looks like most people habits are going back to normal.
However, a Sydney store has chosen to a way, that apparently works, to stop their customers hoarding stock.

For all our customers. We do have toilet paper 🧻. And we are doing our best to keep them in stock for you. Please only buy what you need “ don’t buy to stock up “ as a lot of people are desperate for one roll. From the Greatest Redfern Convenience Store we wish all the best. #redfern #redfernconveniencestore #redfernnow #redfernhood #redfernlyf #redfernsydney #dreamcometrue #dream #food #foodlover #foodie #foodies #bestfood #friend #like4like #hazemisalegend #walloffame #follwer #follwers #customers #customer @willbottom @benfordham9 “ to use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org”
Redfern Convenience Store in the inner city has started put a sign up on toilet paper stating that one packet will cost $3.50.
However, two packs will cost $99, a pretty good way to stop shoppers from stocking up.
The idea actually started in Denmark when one store sold hand sanitiser at its normal price for one bottle but buying two bottles had a mark up for 100 Euro.
A supermarket in Denmark got tired of people hoarding hand sanitizer, so came up with their own way of stopping it.
1 bottle kr40 (€5.50)
2 bottles kr1000 (€134.00) each bottle.
