A convenience store called Day-Today, in Drylaw, Edinburgh, Scotland, has given away thousands of dollars in free toilet paper, hand wash and tissues to customers 65 and older and those with mobility issues. If a customer cannot come to the shop for the free items, the shop will deliver them to the customer's home -- for free.
Shop owner Zahid Iqbal, 34, has already given away more than 1,000 kits, and says he wants to set an example for other businesses. He said the initiative has already cost his convenience store over $6,000, not including the cost of fuel for home deliveries. He is also considering making food bags with pasta and tinned goods, as panic buying leaves store shelves empty and supermarkets struggle to meet demand.
