Toilet paper was one of the most hoarded items at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a third wave of coronavirus hits, some grocery chains have begun to bring anti-hoarding policies similar to those in place over the spring. 

As a third wave of coronavirus hits, some grocery chains have begun to bring anti-hoarding policies similar to those in place over the spring.

Kroger confirmed to the outlet that it had temporarily set a two-per-customer limit on "certain products, including bath tissue, paper towels, disinfecting wipes, and hand soap." 

Similarly, H-E-B has limited toilet paper and paper towel purchases in certain locations, as well as brisket, disinfecting wipes and sprays, hydrogen peroxide, and rubbing alcohol at all stores.

Kroger said it is limiting the amount of toilet paper and paper towels people can buy in its stores.

People will be allowed a maximum purchase of toilet paper is 2 packets and paper towels.


A spokesperson said the company noticed some people were hoarding the paper products and it wants to make sure everyone has a chance to buy them.

There is no word on how long the limit will stay in effect.

The company said there is no shortage of any product.

Costco and Walmart still haven't announced new limitation policies, but the big box retailers could make similar moves if the third wave proves to be disruptive.
