Ohio-based grocery chain Kroger said it is limiting the amount of toilet paper, paper towels, and other products customers can buy in its stores.
The move comes amid spiking COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations throughout Ohio.
A Kroger spokesperson said in a statement that purchase limits are being temporarily placed on certain products to “ensure all customers have access to what they need.”
Customers will be allowed to purchase a maximum of two packages of toilet paper, paper towels, disinfecting wipes, and hand soap.
The spokesperson said Kroger noticed some people were hoarding products.
The purchase limits will apply to both in-store and online orders, the spokesperson said.
