LANSING, Mich. – Officers are reminding Michigan residents that they shouldn’t panic purchase merchandise like bathroom paper, paper towel and different objects.
The reminder comes from the Michigan Division of Agriculture and Rural Improvement (MDARD) Director Gary McDowell and Michigan Retailers Affiliation CEO William Hallan and Meijer CEO Todd Weer, Senior Vice President of Shops.
“Michigan has an ample supply of food products and other items. But, when shoppers panic buy products like toilet paper, paper towel and other items, it creates a ripple effect within the supply chain,” stated McDowell. “Buying what your household will use for the week keeps the supply chain moving, ensures everyone has access to what they need and allows the stores to replenish shelves for your next shopping trip.”
Hallan is uring Michigan residents to restrict purchases to per week’s worth of provide.
“Retailers across the state continue to work hard to restore and maintain product levels in stores to meet the demand in communities,” stated Hallan. “Consumers need to know that stores, particularly grocery stores, will remain open. Consumers should plan for essentials in weekly increments to ensure that supply levels remain steady over the next few weeks. As retailers continue to do their part to keep retail environments safe to shop, we are asking consumers to do their part by limiting quantities to ensure there is enough for everyone.”
