Home Depot, Lowe's, Costco, etc. are limiting the number of purchases on certain supplies like TP, diapers, soaps, cleaners, etc largely because people are stocking up in the hopes of reselling at a profit later. My brother had to go to five places before he found diapers in stock for their daughter, and he bought a case because the store had no idea when they would be getting more. I tried to get more of the hospital-grade disinfecting wipes that we use at work daily to wipe down doors, counters, computers, etc. and they were out of stock from most sellers, and priced sky-high from others. Hand sanitizer prices on Amazon are ridiculous-- $50 for pack of 2 8-oz bottles. $66 for a six-pack of 1-oz purse size bottles. We had a bottle of sanitizer stolen from work today by a customer. I put it out this morning on the counter, and by noon it had vanished. I just put the rest of the in-demand supplies in a locked cabinet that is in an out-of-the-way place in case we are broken into.
