Grocery chains again limiting toilet paper, sanitizing wipes

At Kroger, customers can buy a maximum of two such items, according to a spokesperson who told the network that the limits, which began this week, apply in stores and online.

It’s like springtime all over again amid the spiking coronavirus pandemic as shoppers try to flush out large supplies of toilet paper, paper towels and disinfecting wipes, according to a report.

Several leading grocery chains are reimposing purchasing limits to prevent would-be hoarders from wiping them clean of the essentials, CNN reported.

At Kroger, customers can buy a maximum of two such items, according to a spokesperson who told the network that the limits, which began this week, apply in stores and online.

Meanwhile, Christopher Brand, a rep for the Northeast chain Giant, said the company was “seeing little evidence of stockpiling, and there is no need to create panic.”
