You will, by know, have heard reports of profiteering by businesses selling masks and hand sanitiser at vastly inflated prices. So far, most of these stories emanate from eBay and the online world, so you would be forgiven for resorting to your local pharmacy, but should you?

Loud and clear - check Google reviews before you use any business and, for the sake of your fellow consumers, write reviews to warn them of establishments that, in your opinion, provide poor service or value for money.
