Grocery store limits on toilet paper and other products may be coming back: How Utah shoppers could be impacted
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Some grocery stores are bringing back limits on things like toilet paper as Utah and states across the US are seeing another surge in COVID-19 cases.
Toilet paper limits
The change will likely impact Utah shoppers since Kroger is one of the major chains bringing back limits. Some of the things that will be impacted, as soon as this week, include bath tissue, paper towels, disinfecting wipes and hand soaps.
According to the company, the purpose of the limits is to combat any potential hoarding situations with these vital products.
“To ensure all customers have access to what they need, we’ve proactively and temporarily set purchase limits to two per customer on certain products,” a Kroger spokesperson said in a statement to FOX Business.
Not only will the limit be in place for in-store purchases, but it also will apply to e-commerce orders.
