Due to panic buying, Costco has reinstated limits on toilet paper and other commodities.
Due to supply chain challenges and increasing demand amid COVID-19 increases around the country, discount retailer Costco is once again limiting purchases for some commodities, including toilet paper and bottled water.
The limits, according to the business, are in response to some panic buying at various places, which has occurred in response to an increase in infections, mostly owing to the Delta coronavirus strain.
The restrictions apply to high-demand commodities including toilet paper, bottled water, paper towels, and several cleaning products, according to Costco Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti.
“Port delays, container shortages, COVID disruptions, shortages on various components, raw materials and ingredients, labor cost pressures, and trucker and driver shortages are among the reasons driving supply chains and inflation,” he stated, according to AlphaStreet.
Last year, Costco implemented buying limits on specific commodities in response to an increase in coronavirus infections and the panic shopping that ensued.
Furniture, laptops, and appliances are also affected by delays and shortages, according to Galanti.
