Toilet roll sales surge in sign of shopper stockpiling

Shoppers are snapping up painkillers and toilet roll in a sign of consumer stockpiling ahead of Brexit, supermarket Morrisons has revealed.

David Potts, chief executive of the chain, said the group had seen a spike in sales of the essential household items.

When asked if Morrisons shoppers had started stockpiling to prepare for possible no-deal Brexit chaos, Mr Potts said: “We’ve seen quite a tick up in painkillers and toilet rolls this financial year. Whether that’s got any bearing on how people are feeling about the Brexit process, I don’t know.”
