Toilet paper in great demand

The shelves at the Swansboro Food Lion were cleaned out of toilet paper on Saturday, March 14, apparently in response to the spread of COVID-19. Based on news accounts from around the country, toilet paper was in great demand. For more on the coronavirus situation, including closings and postponements locally, purchase a copy of the March 18, 2020, Tideland News for 75 cents. (Pete Rulon photo)
