THE GREAT AMERICAN CLEAN UP
Apparently showers and other hygiene products weren’t that busy during the pandemic. That is implied by this WALL STREET JOURNAL article detailing deodorants now suddenly flying off the shelves…
Can we expect a “deodorant shortage” next?
From the article, it appears Americans are getting ready for action in the summer of 21:
Deodorant, teeth whitener and condoms are in high demand. Sales of perfume, nail polish, swimsuits, sunscreen, tuxedos, luggage and alarm clocks are climbing fast, according to companies that make these products and large retailers…
Beauty products and teeth whiteners were big sellers during the most recent quarter at Walmart Inc., finance chief Brett Biggs said in an interview. “You can tell that the masks are coming off,” he said.
And this interesting twist in the life of someone who did not shave since the beginning of COVID-19:
Noel Kittredge, a 32-year-old student from Albuquerque, N.M., recently shaved for the first time in a year. He has ventured out only a few times since the pandemic began and felt especially nervous about being around people after both his mother and grandmother contracted the virus.
Mr. Kittredge didn’t shave all that regularly before the pandemic, but as he makes plans to socialize it was time, he said. “I’m tired of being cooped up,” he said.
LET THE PARTY START..
