Coles introduces product limits to avoid binge buying | COVID-19

Coles is implementing a number of temporary measures to improve the availability of key food and grocery items in all Victorian supermarkets and to help customers shop safely.

Coles Group chief executive Steven Cain said the health and safety of customers and team members remained Coles’ top priority.

"At all of our Victorian supermarkets, Coles team members are now greeting customers at the entrance to remind them to use the sanitising station, which includes hand sanitiser and disinfectant wipes for trolleys, before they enter," he said.

“Following discussion with the Federal and Victorian governments as well as other retailers, Coles is implementing temporary purchase limits for our Victorian supermarkets to help us manage demand for key staple items."
