Woolworths has announced it will remove product limits placed on high-demand items in Victoria when shelves were emptied in the earlier phases of the second spike in coronavirus cases for the state.

In-store and online product limits from Thursday will be lifted across 23 product categories, but a strict two-per-customer limit on toilet paper will continue to be enforced in stores nationally.

The supermarket said customers would once again be permitted to buy unlimited quantities of rice, pasta, flour, mince, sugar, eggs, dairy, bread, tissues and paper towels, among a host of other items.

“We wish to thank customers for returning to their normal shopping routines over the past week,” the retailer said on Wednesday.

“We’ll continue to monitor the situation closely and reinstate product limits if we see further demand spikes.

“All Woolworths supermarkets in Victoria will remain open throughout the stage three restrictions, just as they did earlier this year.”
