It’s like the early days of the pandemic all over again at Costco stores – the retailer is once again limiting sales of things like toilet paper. The company’s CFO says the restrictions will apply to paper goods, bottled water, and ‘high-demand cleaning products’. But unlike last year, when restrictions were due to a lack of product, this time a shortage of truck drivers is causing a 2-3 week delay in shipping. Were you one of those people who stockpiled toilet paper last year? How big a pile were you sitting on?
