Local supermarket trying to keep pace with Covid-19 panic buying

Store shelves empty of toilet paper, hand sanitizers and a few other products have become the norm as people react to the Covid-19 threat.

Even though Western Kansas has escaped the coronavirus - so far - that hasn’t prevented panic buying - some of it by local residents and some by out-of-county residents who are searching for product that’s no longer available in their community.

That has prompted White’s Foodliner in Scott City to enact buying limits of toilet paper, even though it was an item the store had success ordering until this week.
