A small store in Sydney comes up with a new way, in order to stop customers from storing toilet paper, in light of the crisis of stockpiling goods due to the spread of the Corona virus in Australia and the world, where books do not be greedy and think about others.
A small store in Sydney has come up with a new way to stop customers from storing toilet paper in light of the stockpiling crisis due to the spread of Corona virus in Australia and the world. "Don't be greedy" and "Think about others."
Instead of restricting the number of toilet paper packages that customers can buy in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, Redfern has adopted a different path.
If the store owner, Mr. Hazem Sadeh, puts a phrase on the toilet paper shelves in his store, it tells customers that the price of one package is $ 3.50, and that the price of the second package is $ 99.
He wrote below the prices "Don't be greedy" and "Think about others."
Mr. Hazem posted to the store's account on social media for his 18,000 followers.
With this, he said, the store team was trying to avoid the scenes left by customers in stores across the country as it left barren toilet shelves.
He added: "We are not trying with this to reap the profits from toilet paper, but rather, we are trying to stop the unacceptable behavior, and to provide the product to all our customers in Sydney and other areas such as Port Macquarie and Orange who have suffered from the depletion of the product."
"We are doing our best to keep it in our stock for customers," Mr. Hazem wrote on the store page on Instagram on our toilet paper.
"Please just buy what you need. Don't buy for storage because a lot of people are desperate to get one roll."
Followers praised Mr. Hazem's move and commented on the photo as "a great idea" to make things more fair for everyone.
Someone wrote, "This is the best idea! Are you still in stock?" Another added: "Haha Genius pricing."
Mr. Hazem says that the suppliers have raised the prices of goods at the stores, which makes him very sad, because he stands helpless as for those who cannot keep up with the high prices.
For his part, in the midst of the toilet paper interruption crisis, he delivered the wraps free to any customer who needed them. He invited his social media followers to visit the store and get some of them.
"During this time, I got calls from a lot of people to thank me, and I felt proud that I could provide some help to those who needed it."
Some goods in Australia are now witnessing a wave of price hikes, and according to Mr. Hazem, who recently received an order of 400 packages, the volume of 60 ml, for hand sanitizer known as the sensitizer, the price of one package is now $ 11, while it was sold at 3 Maximum dollars.
"I wish I could give it free for everyone. But this is difficult."
Mr. Hazem says that the behavior of some people and merchants by monopolizing goods in order to raise their prices is an unacceptable behavior in all religious and human norms. Traders call for sympathy for citizens and stand by them in light of the crisis, just as consumers stand with them in light of economic crises.
Redven's store is known for selling hard-to-get items outside the country to its loyal customers.
The Redfern convenience store sees itself as the "Greatest Little Shop on Earth" and has an online follow-up as well as famous fans like Ben Fordham, Edwina Bartholome and Sylvia Jeffreys
The country faced a wave of toilet paper shortages across Australia after consumers panicked at the possibility of the product running out amid fears that a pandemic of the emerging virus could affect its supplies in the market.
After shoppers stripped the shelves of toilet paper, restrictions were placed on the number of packages that could be purchased in just one package per shopper.
The fights also broke out among some shopper in the stores, and posted videos of two women fighting for toilet paper packages at a supermarket in Sydney.
Hundreds of thousands of people watched the video of the incident filmed at the Woolworths store in Chullora, in southwest Sydney, after it spread online.
Woolworths stores increased security in their branches while the police increased their presence in supermarkets and even helped distribute toilet paper to customers in some stores.
