Where’s all the toilet paper? Businesses trying to keep up

While some states are completely shutting down bars and restaurants, Chase County’s private businesses for the most part aren’t that drastic.

The biggest issue that has affected Chase County during the pandemic of COVID-19 is the lack of toilet paper.

Desiree Loeffler of Super Foods said toilet paper sold out pretty quickly last week.

“We’ve ordered a lot more, we’re hopeful that we’ll get some,” Loeffler said. “Our warehouse seems to think that we’ll get some.”

Super Foods has also seen some bigger sales on nonperishables since then.

“I don’t think anybody was really prepared,” Loeffler said.

Super Foods has free grocery delivery and online ordering available on their website,

Saturday at Bomgaars, there was one small end shelf geared to coronavirus supplies, which included hand soap, four-packs of toilet paper, sanitizing wipes and paper towels.

“That’s all we have left,” a Bomgaars employee said. “We’re going to do what we can to get more, but that’s it for now.”
