Wagga shoppers could not wipe the grins off their faces as rare items such as toilet paper reappeared on shelves amid a heroic restocking effort.
Shops have begun restocking their shelves 24/7, following the NSW Government's decision to slash red tape and allow supermarkets to receive deliveries all day and all night.
The new laws made a noticeable difference for Kooringal shopper Peter Russell, who was able to get his hands on his first packet of toilet paper in three weeks.
"There's none at home," Mr Russell said.
"We've gone through a lot of tissues and a lot of showers."
His 10-year-old niece Mikayla Truscott said the past few weeks have been difficult for her family, who have struggled to find supplies amid a surge of panic-buying.
"Every time we go to the shop there, like, nothing," Mikayla said.
"We've been having little dinners, whatever we can find in the cupboard or freezer."
Shopper Terry Bartholomew was grinning ear to ear when he got his hands on a coveted packet of toilet paper.
He said the shelves seemed marginally fuller these days, giving him hope that society was regaining some semblance of normalcy.
"Everything's pretty full. It's starting to come together again, I think," Mr Bartholomew said.
"It will be as normal as we want it to be."
Cheryl Cheung just so happened to be driving past Kooringal Mall when she spotted shoppers streaming out of Woolworths carrying toilet paper, and so she quickly followed suit.
"Today I was quite lucky to get a pack of toilet paper," Ms Cheung said.
"They restock sporadically now so you need to get lucky."
However shortages still continue as panic-buyers continue to clear shelves around Wagga amid growing coronavirus fears.
Casual staff have been working longer hours to keep the shelves stocked, and Woolworths' CEO Brad Banducci has been begging spooked customers not to stockpile more than they need.
"If everyone just bought what they needed we would rapidly see a full shop again in ourselves and in all of our competitors," Mr Banducci said.
