After loo roll sell out came cleaning products and now bikes, cycle shops are selling entire stock of bikes and up to 50 bikes a day rather than 30 bikes a week.

So what will be the next hot product?

I think it could be tents and camping equipment as people decide to stay in UK for cheap holidays away

Sun cream?

Paddling pools, garden furniture.

Elastic for making face masks is already very difficult to find.

Hair dye?!

Exercise equipment, toys, technology (entertaining kids and for working from home)

Although I think those are all doing a roaring trade already...

I've been having shopping delivered or click and collect but today had to go round to surgery to see GP and decided to be a devil and pop into little shop. I haven't been able to get caster sugar with my deliveries but the shop had one little bag left, it was leaking but I was pleased to get it. Flour is also hard to get so maybe it will be anything baking related?

Next wave I reckon will be stuff that people need every few months...
home dentistry? Tooth whitening kits etc
Children's clothes - fabric, patterns, sewing machines
Pet grooming

Sewing machines.
DH ordered one yesterday, and it has a six week delivery estimate.

Flour stocks improving now after being absent for a few weeks- mills reported it was a bag shortage rather than the actual flour.

Compost and other garden items

It's very hard to exercise equipment, like kettlebell etc.

MyMagicStars Tue 12-May-20 12:53:15

Elastic and fabric for masks.
Hair dye.
Dental filler is already hard to find.
Tennis balls and garden footballs.
Energy drinks- hard working frontline staff, student exams, kids off school...

Another vote for elastic, my teen ds wants me to sew him some facemasks, fortunatelty after a rumage in my stash boxes i have found several metres of it!

Tape measures? To accurately measure the 2m social distancing when meeting a friend in the park to sunbathe or picnic?! grin

Trampolines - apparently they are selling like hot cakes!

I work in a pharmacy and we can’t replace hair dye and we can’t get in any dental repair kits.
People have not started buying hair dressing scissors and looking for clippers.
Like a pp friends are looking for a hot tub can’t get one. And garden furniture and gazebos are going out of stock. People are clearly preparing for a summer at home.

Hair cutting kits

Dontlickthetrolley Tue 12-May-20 13:47:06

Trampolines are our local issue!

Hairdye, judging by my local Boots shelves last week.
