Here’s why paper products and cleaning supplies might be hard to find in stores again

PHOENIX - Shelves in Valley grocery stores are starting to look like they did back in the spring.

Paper products like paper towels and toilet paper and some cleaning supplies are once again becoming hard to find.

"It was, in a way, expected," HItendra Chaturvedi, a professor of supply chain management at ASU, said.

Arizonans started to buy up items at the end of October following a trend seen elsewhere in the country.

Chaturvedi said the three main reasons why are: COVID-19 cases going up, people stocking up for winter and the election.
