Coles and Woolworths lift shopping restrictions in Victoria after a surge in coronavirus cases

However, one important household item remains on the list.

As previously reported on LifeStyle, both Coles and Woolworths reintroduced buying restrictions on  products in stores around the country. 

Both supermarket giants placed the limit on everyday items after the coronavirus outbreak in Melbourne saw an increase in panic buying.

As of July 7, Coles and Woolworths will lift these limits on all products, except for toilet paper.

Shoppers took to social media to share their frustrations after spotting empty supermarket shelves, leaving them fearing for the worst after months panic buying took place when the pandemic started in March.

Coles and Woolworths re-introduced product limits on toilet paper and paper towels on June 26.

Stores in Victoria and NSW, had limited shoppers from buying everything from hand sanitiser, to flour, sugar, frozen meals, pasta, mince, UHT milk, eggs and rice.

A full list of the products that had limits enforced on them can be found here.
