Target Is Limiting Purchases Of Hand Sanitizer And Other Products

More shoppers are stockpiling for coronavirus, but two retailers say not so fast.

Before you join the panic and buy more stuff than you have room for, take a breath and remember there’s a limit. Target is limiting items, like hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes, to six per person. Signs went up in stores over the weekend saying it's due to high demand.

Kroger did the same thing earlier this month, with a limit of five items. The goal is to slow the buying frenzy so shelves remain stocked. Interestingly, even items not related to protecting from coronavirus is seeing an uptick in sales.
