Morrisons in Netherfield reintroduces rationing as second wave panic-buying hits supermarkets


A Netherfield supermarket is to reintroduce the rationing of essential goods.

Morrisons, which has a store on Victoria Retail Park, will now be limiting consumers buying products such as toilet roll, disinfectants and bleach to a maximum of three items.

All the major supermarkets had introduced temporary restrictions in March after shelves were stripped bare of essentials such as toilet rolls in the weeks leading up to the COVID-19 lockdown.

Morrisons admitted they would be reintroducing the measures in a response to a tweet from a customer.

The supermarket giant tweeted: “We have seen stocking up on certain products like soup, pasta, cleaning items, etc. Due to this we’re now introducing some max caps into store so we can ensure good availability for all our customers.”

A Morrisons spokesman later told Reuters: “We’ve got decent stock levels but we want to be sure that they are available for everyone.”
