Dollar General Manager Jen Fergusen stocks shelves with toilet paper last week. Dollar General is trying to keep up with the demand for toilet paper, as are other businesses.

Toilet paper still an issue in Chase County

Despite getting regular deliveries, businesses in Imperial can’t keep up with the demand for toilet paper.

Quinetessa Andrews, an assistant manager at Dollar General, said their shipment of toilet paper was gone the same day it was put out.

“We’re also having trouble keeping Lysol sprays, Clorox wipes and hand sanitizers in stock,” Andrews said.

Dollar General nationwide started Senior Store Hours, reserving the first hour of business, from 8 to 9 a.m. in Imperial, to those most at risk.

Dollar General is also closing early to allow for more thorough cleaning and disinfecting.

“As far as I know,” Andrews said, “the only way we will close is if one of us employees gets the virus.”

Imperial Super Foods has begun limiting the amount of toilet paper customers can purchase.

“We’re still limiting everyone to one package,” owner Jill Moline said.

Moline added they got a shipment of toilet paper Monday morning and “it stayed on the shelf for maybe half a day.”
