Stores quickly selling out of COVID at-home testing kits

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – COVID-19 at-home testing kits are becoming hard to find as Christmas approaches.

Shelves are empty at many stores and pharmacies in Greenville.

At Realo Drugs, pharmacist Brian Fulcher says they were well-stocked for the last 8 weeks, but as the Omicron variant emerged and the holidays approach, customers have been buying at-home test kits at a much faster pace.

Fulcher recommends calling several pharmacies or shopping online if you are in need of a kit.

Fulcher added that he believes the drug store will be well-stocked again after Christmas.
