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.

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.
