Three weeks after Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced a mandatory stay-at-home order, dish soap and cleaners remain out of stock. New shipments arrive a few times during the week, and customers are limited to two items per person yet demand cannot be met.
Three weeks after Governor Larry Hogan announced a mandatory stay-at-home order, the cleaning supply aisle for wood surfaces and kitchens had few items on the shelves. Stores can restock only a few times out of the week and customers are limited to two per person.
The Safeway grocery store is located in Fort Washington, Maryland. Two months after the federal government expressed the importance of social distancing, the store installed large red stickers on the ground to control the flow of traffic.
Products like paper towels and toilet paper have been extremely hard to find during the pandemic, due to consumer stockpiling. The entire aisle at this Safeway is completely out of stock. Store managers are limiting customers to two per person due to the high demand.
