SAN ANTONIO – H-E-B has updated the purchase limits for products customers can purchase as the coronavirus pandemic continues, including ever-so-coveted toilet paper.
The product limits vary at select stores and are an effort to “protect the supply chain and make sure our customers can find the items they need,” H-E-B spokesperson Julie Bedingfield previously told KSAT.
All H-E-B stores are still limiting brisket purchases but toilet paper has dropped off the product limit list.
Toilet paper has been a hot commodity during the coronavirus pandemic. When consumers started panic-buying items, H-E-B had to place limits on products but has since removed purchase limits on many items.
H-E-B stores will need to abide by the following purchase limit for food items:
- Brisket – Limit 2
Other items that are not food-related but are limited for all H-E-B customers are listed below:
- Paper towels – limit 2
- Acetaminophen – 2 items total (includes baby, trial and travel sizes, OTC)
- H-E-B Acid Controller/Famotidine and Pepcid 50ct and larger – Limit 1
- H-E-B Acid Controller/Famotidine and Pepcid smaller than 50ct – Limit 2
- Disinfecting & antibacterial sprays – 2 items
- Disinfecting & antibacterial wipes – 2 items
- Trial and travel size disinfecting & antibacterial sprays/wipes – 2 items
- Hand sanitizer – 10 items
- Hand soap – 2 items
- Hydrogen peroxide – 2 items
- Rubbing (Isopropyl) Alcohol/swabs – 2 items
- First Aid and Cleaning Gloves – 2 items
Product limits that apply to H-E-B stores in the border region include:
- Baby wipes – limit 2
