Coronavirus Australia: Woolworths brings back acquire limitations in the middle of panic buying

Grocery store huge Woolworths has actually announced it will be reimposing purchasing limits on vital items in Victoria, after Premier Daniel Andrews confirmed the state will be tightening lockdown limitations.

Woolworths has actually renewed a purchase limit of 2 products per consumer across at least 50 product classifications in Victoria.

” We understand this is an anxious time for our Victorian consumers, however we motivate everybody to continue shopping as they generally would and only purchase what they need,” Claire Peters, Woolworths Supermarkets Handling Director, said in a statement on Sunday.

” Stock will continue to flow from our distribution centres and as an important service, Woolworths grocery stores stay open to support consumers’ food and grocery needs.”

The move follows a boost in demand across Victorian shops in the past 24 hours.

Mr Andrews urged people to resist panic purchasing.

” I wish to make the point there’s no requirement to be marking time at the Coles or Woolworths or marking time at the local baker or butcher, they’ll stay open. They’ll remain to be able to offer you with the things that you require,” he stated in a press instruction on Sunday.
