Some grocery stores are taking precautions and limiting the amount of Thanksgiving dinner related items due to supply-chain shortages.
Both Publix and Winn-Dixie have announced limits based on availability in their stores.
At Publix, items such as canned cranberry sauce; canned pie filling; jarred gravy; cream cheese; bacon; canola and vegetable oil; paper napkins; disposable cups, cutlery and plates; toilet paper; sports drinks; rolled sausage; refrigerated pet food; and canned cat food have been limited to two items per guest.
Winn-Dixie who also operates stores in different states says they are only limiting the amount of turkeys parties can buy :
“We have a purchase limit of one turkey per customer to help all families have an opportunity to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal this year, and we feel confident in our ability to provide the essential items our customers need for their special feast. While we don’t have a limit on other items throughout the store, we are politely asking customers to only purchase what they need for their families while shopping for key holiday items.”
Other grocery stores may also be limiting certain items. Items that have limitations generally will have a sign up near those items.
