The markets are as much to blame for the empty shelf's in the stores.
They should have limited the number of the same idem.
No one needs to buy 5 cases of TP that means 4 other people have to go without

I'd be willing to buy those 17,700 bottles of hand sanitizer for $.01 each and donate them to the local shelter. I'll even drive to Tennessee to pick them up.

Or maybe they can bathe in it after the virus is contained.

NBC reports the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office opened a price gouging investigation after the story went viral this weekend. State law bars people from charging “unreasonable prices for essential goods and services, including gasoline, in direct response to a disaster."

Colvin confirmed Sunday that he would be donating all of the hand sanitizer to charity. WRCB reports the AG’s staff was seen hauling boxes out of Colvin’s storage unit on Sunday.

But donating them will not get him off the hook.

The 17,000+ bottles of hand sanitizer have been donated to charity... With the assistance of a judge and the police department. The poor rip off opportunist lost his shirt in the deal.. As well he should.

I see Walmart is selling 750 ml bottles of Everclear alcohol. I don't know how pysically big that is, but I think I'd prefer a smaller container of regular sanitizer to carry round all day, if one can be found.


IIRC, 750 ml bottle is what is commonly known as a "fifth", or one fifth of a gallon. Most "hard liquor" is available in pints or fifths.

Ah, according to a quick search, a 750 ml bottle is a "metric fifth". A "real" fifth is 757 ml, or exactly 1/5 of a gallon. I neglected to check to see when the change took place.

AHH,nope. Made between $40/75,000 on sales. They are asking anyone that bought at high price to send invoices in. And I'm sure they are going over the sale/shipping records.

Back when I was drinking the store-bought bottle I carried in pocket embossed in the glass was 3/4 pt. If bought one to share 3/4 Qt. Now 'shine you could buy full quarts or gallons. Think the size was a function of the tax system.
