The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted, practically overnight, trends in consumer buying behaviors, turning previously mundane items into hot commodities. Toilet paper, cleaning supplies and non-perishable foods flew off store shelves in the pandemic's early days while, in the weeks and months that followed, disruptions in manufacturing and the supply chain contributed to shortages among appliances, aluminum cans, meat and even coins.
