NEWFM’s unites against a resurgence of panic buying
With panic-buying seemingly back on the rise, NEWFM’s Jade, Matty & Krivo decided that someone needed to intervene on behalf of Novacastrians.
The Novos started by reaching out to panic buyers, asking for stories or for Novacastrians to dob someone in they’ve seen panic buying.
Do you know a secret panic buyer or have you seen a panic buyer at the shops and what were they up too?
On their Breakfast show today, Jade, Matty & Krivo spoke to a reformed panic buyer who has changed his life due to the pandemic, after opening with their panic-buying anthem.
“It’s got to stop! Every roll matters!” they said.
Jamie the reformed panic buyer said that he’s decided that after he stocked up on everything before, that he ended up getting too close to use-by dates and had to give away. He then became a truck driver and found out how hard it was for delivery drivers to keep up with demand.
“I was buying over $500 worth of canned food. I was stocking up as if it was going to be the end of the world,” he said.
Speaking with Lord Mayor Nuatali Helmes, there came a solid piece of advice; “just go to a bigger shop”.
