|SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Consumers are stocking up on food and other emergency supplies due to concerns about a potential Ebola outbreak in the United States. In the last three weeks, Legacy Food Storage has seen a 300 percent increase in demand over the same three-week period last year – and the company isn’t alone.
“The demand for food, water, fuel and other supplies needed in case individuals or families are required to stay in their homes has simply exploded since the first mention of an Ebola patient in the United States,” said Phil Cox, CEO, Legacy Food Storage. “Not only have we experienced it here at Legacy, but one of the largest wholesale warehouses tells us they are seeing that same significant increase. Fortunately, more and more realize they need to be prepared now instead of waiting until it’s almost too late to storm the grocery stores for the last gallon of water or loaf of bread.”
According to Cox, those who haven’t prepared their homes for an inevitable emergency – such as a health scare or hurricane, earthquake or even a job loss – often cite a lack of knowledge about how exactly to get started.
