H-E-B adjusts purchasing limits on eggs, toilet paper and other staples
H-E-B updated limits on the purchase of eggs, toilet paper and other essentials Monday.
Hoarding by shoppers concerned about the coronavirus pandemic forced H-E-B to place limits on items ranging from baby wipes to frozen pizzas.
As shoppers adjusted to the coronavirus, H-E-B removed limits on some items and updated the limit on others.
"For the long term, H-E-B is in a good in-stock position on many of the items our customers need and we are working around the clock to restock our shelves," H-E-B said in a statement. "To help protect the supply chain in Texas, we’ve implemented temporary purchase limits on certain items. Limiting product purchases and store hours is a proven way to ensure the best service and product availability for all customers. While our customers might notice supply of some products low or temporarily out of stock, we encourage them to check back with us if they cannot find what they need, as we’ll continue to restock our products."
