As people locally continue to try to protect themselves from the spread of the coronavirus, face masks have reportedly sold out in many island stores.
However, if you are in the Barrigada area, you might still be able to find face masks.
With the sudden and rapid outbreak of the coronavirus internationally, Guam resident Jean-Pierre Estrellado saw an opportunity and chance to offer the community face masks which have been in scarce supply lately.
Estrellado says though it’s tough traveling and risking his own health, it’s important to offer fair prices to the public before the items are subject to price gouging.
“We are here so that we can give people the option to get a better price before it hits the market. People are going to be gouging. They are selling N95 masks in the Philippines at 70 cents apiece. We aren’t price gouging, it comes from the manufacturer and in turn the consumer has to pick up that cost,” Estrellado said.
Estrellado offers satin, cotton washable and disposable masks ranging in price from $5 to $15.
