Really?

Ours has been shut down, from what I understand...

My brother's team at the company he works for created a telemedicine solution as a side project last year. Two weeks ago they sold an entire quarter's worth of company sales, in one week, just for that platform. They can't take orders and send invoices fast enough. Wasn't the company's strategy, but it is now.

You're spot on. The use of toilet paper is exactly the same as before, unlike hand san and masks. However, use has shifted in favor of home vs away-from-home bathroom occasions (away from home being using a bathroom at a school, workplace, hotel, hospital, etc.). Paper companies have shifted production toward home grades (softer, thicker) vs institutional, but it's taking time to work its way trough the supply chain. AND - we (consumers) tend to overbuy non-perishables in times of crisis, expanding the shortage.

At some point, supply chain will catch up to the shift to home product vs institutional, AND people that bought a year's supply run out of space to store any more. Unlike hand sanitizer, where usage has gone up, we still only go to the bathroom so many times a day/week, and paper suppliers are set to manufacture against this demand. At some point, over-stocked people will stop buying, paper makers will keep making TP as fast as they can, and we'll see TP on sale everywhere.

Bicycle shops are seeing a bit more business. They’re always on thin margins. They may not thrive, but not having to close certainly helps.

Well paper products has already been mentioned but I just saw a Aussie stock market report and a local company producing disposable rubber gloves is going great guns to keep up supply.

I was going to say the same thing. I know so many people who have purchased bikes over the last week.

Mental health professionals are in high demand right now. I assume they will be for a very long time.

YouTube has got to be making a killing (technically, Google). Same for TikTok and most social media platforms.

Hardware and home improvement stores are also seeing a huge increase in business (this is anecdotal on my part).

Like puzzles, I am guessing books are increasing in sales.

Gun sales are up as well...

Handguns and ammo (US, at least.) Record sales, lots of shops out of inventory. "Draw" your own conclusions.

Default Garden centers and nurseries...

My daughter works as a cashier at Seattle's largest plant sales nursery. She reports that she worked 360+ orders today, much more than normal. They takes the order and payment over the phone and deliver the plants and products to curbside. I understand this. My aspirations for my garden have expanded, now that work is on hold.

I am thinking diapers will be a good seller in December and January. Gotta buy some diaper stocks.

My carry gun is a .380, and ammunition has been difficult to find for that...

Funeral homes and mortuary services would certainly be a booming business right now.

+1 on Zoom. My family has been using it for school, daughter’s dance classes, Girl Scout meetings, chatting with groups of family and friends. Lots of businesses have been using it too, though not mine.
