One pack of toilet paper per person

In the last 24 hours, Coles has reduced their limits of toilet paper per person to one pack.

Releasing a statement on their website, CEO of Coles Group, Steven Cain says:

“Following unprecedented demand for toilet paper we reluctantly introduced a temporary 4-pack limit last week. Unfortunately, many stores are still selling out within an hour delivery.


We have therefore made the decision to change the limit to 1-pack per customer so that toilet paper is available for more of our customers, particularly the elderly and people who are unable to purchase in large volumes.

We have asked our suppliers to focus on increasing production of larger pack sizes and we are prioritising the delivery of these packets to our stores, as a pack of 30 rolls should last an average family for around 3 weeks.”

Due to the coronavirus panic, many supermarkets are putting restrictions on toilet paper, hand sanitiser and other purchases.

Woolworths is currently limiting their shoppers to 2 packs of toilet paper per order, with Costco Australia and ALDI following similar processes.

The Coles statement concludes with: “We are grateful to our team members and suppliers who are working tirelessly to do the best job possible under the circumstances, and we thank our customers for their understanding and support.”
