Woolworths has today moved to apply a quantity limit on toilet paper packs to ensure more customers have access to the products.
The purchase limit of four packs per customer transaction applies in-store and online. It will help shore up stock levels as suppliers ramp up local production and deliveries in response to higher than usual demand.
"Our teams are continuing to work hard on restocking stores with long-life food and groceries from our distribution centres," said a spokesperson.
"The vast majority of the products in our range remain available for our customers as normal. We apologise to customers for the inconvenience caused by temporary stock shortages and thank them for their patience."
