Chris Clements, manager, Reid’s Super Save Market

“It’s been outrageously crazy. Toilet paper’s flying off the shelf, bleach, hand wipes, hand sanitizer. … Even our suppliers have been having a difficult time as far as some items. We can’t get hand sanitizer in, paper products — they’re being limited as to what comes in.

“We’re having our floors cleaned more. In our spare time, which we don’t have much of right now, we’re actually wiping the shelves down as much as we can.”
