Woolworths today reintroduced buying restrictions on a number of key products in Victoria, both in-store and online.
The precautionary move follows a surge in demand for the Victorian government’s announcement of a five-day lockdown. The limits ensure that Woolworths customers have fair access to important products.
Woolworth’s Victoria Assistant State Manager, John Di Tirro, said, “We understand this is a fearful time for Victorians, but we want to reassure our customers that we will remain open as an essential service.
“We have ample inventory at our suppliers and distribution centers, and our team will be working hard to get this flowing into our stores in bulk over the coming days.
“We encourage Victorian to look out for others in the community and continue shopping as usual.”
To keep our stores safe, Woolworths will conduct additional social distancing monitoring. Additional team members are also deployed to assist with additional cleaning and wiping of the trolleys. As per Victorian Government guidelines, all customers and team members are expected to wear face masks in our stores.
Mr. Di Tirro added, “As always, we ask our customers to comply with all social distancing and hygiene measures when shopping in our stores. We also ask our customers to treat our team and each other with respect as we get through this uncertain time together. “
