Jerry Brantley (right) of Greenville serves as “bread man” for Hopkins County. On Tuesday, he delivered 900 units to Brookshire’s, only to have the store call him one hour and 45 minutes later to ask if he had any more bread he could give them, he said.

“Us bread men are worried about adding all this product,” he said. “I have to sell it all, and then I get paid.”

While business is good now, he says, he worries about what will happen when demand dies down after the initial rush and he’s stuck with his supply.
