Amazon users may experience delays as items run out of stock

As consumers are increasingly inclining towards online shopping during the present coronavirus pandemic, U.S. e-commerce giant, Amazon.com, Inc., has warned users that they may experience some delays in product delivery as products go out of stock.

According to an official statement, Amazon said that the company aims at serving its customers during this current crisis, and is actively working on delivering products that users essentially require. The firm said that they are currently out of stock on some brands and items, especially in the household genre, however, it is working around the clock with partners to ensure availability of all its products and adding more capacity to its product delivery.

Reportedly, a warning is being displayed on Amazon's website stating that ‘inventory & delivery may temporarily be unavailable due to increased demand. Check availability at checkout.' Meanwhile, household items like toilet paper, hand soap and sanitizer and listed as out of stock. Amazon’s famous one-day and two-day delivery options have also been delayed by several days. 

Speculating growing havoc among citizens, U.S. President Donald Trump recently advised people to avoid panic buying & hoarding food and household products. While Vice President Mike Pence, who is currently heading the coronavirus task force, assured Americans during a briefing that stores will continue to remain open.

He said that President Trump has received a commitment from grocery executives that stores will remain open throughout the days, adding that there might be changes in their working hours mainly in order to conduct additional cleaning and resupplies of stores.

Assuring further, Mike Pence said that American families can be sure that their your local grocery stores will remain open with well supplied product stocks. However, these stores have requested them to encourage Americans to only buy weekly needed grocery.
