‘Genius’ corner shop comes up with easy way to stop people stockpiling toilet roll

Corner shop owner Hazem Sedda has come up with a ‘genius’ way to stop people stockpiling following coronavirus COVID-19 self-isolation fears

Days before we were told to stay indoors to stop the spread of coronavirus Covid-19, people started bulk-buying the essentials.

Despite reassurances that there is enough to go around and desperate pleas from those left without, people flocked to supermarkets – and the first thing on everyone’s shopping list was toilet roll. 

To stop it happening at his store, Australian shopkeeper Hazem Sedda came up with his own cheeky tactic to stop people clearing the shelves.

Hazem, who runs Redfern Convenience Store in Sydney, is allowing customers to buy a two pack of toilet roll for $3.50, which is about £3.
