As we Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour this week many here in Australia are sadly simply looking forward to a four day weekend. You see, Easter is a BIG thing here not because of the spiritual benefits His death and resurrection has for us sinners but because it is a LONG 4 day week end off work; Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Easter Sunday, and Easter Monday! Who wouldn’t want to live here?
Well, anyway with the Coronavirus situation still an ongoing experience the grocery stores continue to inform us of what is occurring in the realm of food. This is the latest info from one of those stores.
‘As we head into the Easter long weekend, it’s now Week 7 since we experienced our first surge in demand.’
‘Where are we with toilet paper and other essential products?
We’re working very hard to keep up with demand for all the products that remain challenging, and we’re also starting to see some pleasing improvements.
Demand for toilet paper finally appears to be tapering, with this week’s sales expected to be around 15-16 million rolls. That’s still 45% up on last year, but with supply up 70% on last year, there is increasingly more on-shelf. But like every week so far, I’d still ask you to only buy what you need.
We do still have some issues on paper towels and tissues, with sales up 60-80%. That’s a staggering 2.75 million rolls of paper towels and more than 1.6 million boxes of tissues a week. These are big numbers and we’re working with our suppliers to bring in even more supply.’
Then there is the catch phrase ‘…that we’re all in this together, and if we continue to be better together, we will succeed.’ https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/discover/ceo-update
