We have been meaning to buy a computer monitor for my daughter who often works from home – her company laptop is tiny. Decided to go today and discovered there’s been a run on monitors. The young fellow at Best Buy said people have been coming in for a few days and cleaning them out – first going to Costco but giving up because the lines there were too insufferable.
We did find one at Staples – but the last one in our price range. Another couple bought the last monitor that was $10 cheaper (and an ‘open box’ one too). Desperation comes in many forms.
Clearly, so many people are having to work from home (and eat at home, since Sobey’s shelves have been cleaned out too) that a decent-sized monitor is a necessity. How times have changed. I wonder what other products (besides the obvious) are being snapped up? No point trying to stock up on Viagra – the ‘health clinic’ we frequent has decided to close for a week. Go figure!
Perhaps we should be thinking about buying shares in out-of-the-ordinary companies benefiting from the coronavirus panic?
