Due to ongoing shortages Publix places purchase limits on select Items
Supermarket giant Publix, a company based in Florida is limiting customers to purchase two select items at stores due to ongoing shortages related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Their slogan is “Where shopping is a pleasure” but that will not be the case for some customers during the holidays.
“The limits are for all stores in our seven-state operating area,” a representative for Publix told the station. “There is not a set time determined for these limits, and the list can change to include more items or remove items.”
Items on the list for limited purchase include:
• Canned cranberry sauce
• Jarred gravy
• Canned pie filling
• Canola and vegetable oil
• Cream cheese
• Rolled breakfast sausage
• Paper napkins
• Disposable plates, cups, and cutlery
• Bath tissue
• Refrigerated snacks
• Sports drinks
• Aseptic type juices
• Canned cat food
• Refrigerated pet food
According to Publix, demand for specific holiday items has also contributed to widespread shortages.
