Morrison’s has limited the number of items customers can purchase over fears of panic buying and stockpiling, such as toilet roll and hand gel.
As the UK braces for a second wave of coronavirus supermarket shelves have been left bare across the country.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) have urged shoppers to be considerate of others, and are asking people to “shop as you normally would.”
A spokesman told The Grocer, “We are introducing a limit on a small number of key products, such as toilet roll and disinfectant.
“Our stock levels of these products are good, but we want to ensure that they are available for everyone.”
Tesco chief executive Dave Lewis told Sky News earlier this week that they have “very good supplies of food.”
He added, “We just don’t want to see a return to unnecessary panic buying because that creates a tension in the supply chain that’s not necessary.
“And therefore we would just encourage customers to continue to buy as normal.”
