Tesco blocks bulk-buying of key items in the UK after new COVID curbs

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Britain’s biggest supermarket Tesco introduced limits to prevent customers bulk-buying key products such as flour, pasta, toilet roll and anti-bacterial wipes after the government introduced new curbs to suppress COVID-19.

British customers stockpiled key goods at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown in March, stripping shelves bare and forcing retailers to limit how many goods could be bought at one time.

“We have good availability, with plenty of stock to go round, and we would encourage our customers to shop as normal,” a spokeswoman said.

“To ensure that everyone can keep buying what they need, we have introduced bulk-buy limits on a small number of products.”

Tesco joins Morrisons in reimposing restrictions to prevent extreme stockpiling after Prime Minister Boris Johnson told people to work from home if they can as cases of COVID-19 started to rise sharply.
