Sam’s Club and other retailers are having to cope with supply chain shortages that limit the availability of paper products, such as toilet paper and paper towels:

“Costco reinstated purchasing limits on key products including bath tissues and roll towels amid an uptick in demand, CFO Richard Galanti said on an earnings call last Thursday. Sam’s Club also said on its website ‘certain items like paper products’ may only be available ‘in limited quantities’ due to high demand.”
