I have wondered that for most of my life. Usually related to storms (hurricanes/blizzards/etc.).

1. They stock up on ice encase the power goes out.
2. They stock up on perishables like milk (see 1 above) and bread.
3. They stock up on non-perishables - whether they need to or not.

Those of us who know that bottled water, paper towels and, yes, even toilet paper are luxury items, tend to have a more practical mind.

Keeping a well stocked pantry makes sense, creating one at the last minute just inconvenience everyone else.
