Woolworths has removed product limits in its South Australian stores which were in place to prevent panic buying.

The supermarket announced on Friday afternoon the limits would be gone by Saturday.

Woolworths Supermarkets South Australia General Manager, Karl Weber said the supermarket faced only “moderate demand” though.

“Our team members and supplier partners will continue working around the clock to restock our stores, so we ask our South Australian customers to continue buying only what they need,” Mr Weber said.

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

The move coincides with a premature ending to South Australia’s statewide Covid-19 lockdown.

While the limit enforcement has ended, Woolies said it will still honour the extended trading hours across the weekend before they return to normal from Monday, November 30.

Woolies in SA will open 7am until 8pm on Saturday, Sunday from 9am until 8pm, and Monday to Friday from 7am until 9pm.
