Addressing False Coronavirus Rumors
Growing concerns of COVID-19 in the US have sparked false rumors now circulating on WhatsApp and other forms of social media about Patel Brothers.
We would like to address the following questions and concerns from our customers:
1. Will there be a shortage of stock?
No, there will not be a shortage. The recent panic has caused the supply chain to delay, but product is scheduled to come in regularly. There is no need to stock up for months. Follow local and federal guidelines on how much you should purchase.
2. Do your stores have CoronaVirus?
As of this update, our stores do not have any reported cases by employees.
If you have any questions or concerns about anything you read on social media, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification. We are here to help you.
