Woolworths limits toilet paper and balms

Customers in Woolworths stores across the country will be limited to buying two packs of toilet paper and pain relievers at once.

Shoppers in Western Australia will also face restrictions on purchases of ground beef, sausage and chicken products.

The supermarket giant says the restrictions on toilet paper and painkillers products are a result of supply chain disruptions preventing products from reaching shelves, as well as some pockets of increased demand.

The company says that this limit will ensure equitable access to necessities.

It will be applied in-store and online.

Similar limits were introduced at the start of the pandemic in 2020 as panic buying led to widespread shortages of toilet paper.

WA limits are claimed by “excessive purchasing” of meat products.

Janet Vinsky, director of Woolworth Stores, said it was a worried time for customers, but pledged stores would remain open.

“We will continue to closely monitor product availability across our stores, with stock still being sent to stores daily. Customers will notice some gaps on the shelves but we are doing everything we can to meet demand.”

“We encourage everyone to pay attention to others in the community and continue to shop in reasonable quantities.”

Supply chain disruptions have led to empty shelves in Woolworths and Coles stores across the country, as truck drivers and other essential workers have contracted the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
