Toilet paper panic buying has hit again with bare shelves and busy shoppers at Goulburn supermarkets.
As of 11:30am today stock was low at Coles and Woolworths in Goulburn.
Other items that were in short supply at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, such as canned food, water and milk, remain plentiful.
The two supermarket chains have implemented nationwide purchase limits today to ensure more customers have access to staple items.
Effective from today, toilet paper and paper towel is limited to one pack at both Woolworths and Coles.
A Coles spokesperson asked customers to continue to shop normally so everyone had access to the food and groceries they needed.
Woolworths managing director Claire Peters said they had regrettably started to see elevated demand for toilet roll move outside Victoria in the past 24 hours.
"While the demand is not at the same level as Victoria, we're taking preventative action now to get ahead of any excessive buying this weekend and help maintain social distancing in our stores.
"We have ordered more than 650,000 additional packs of toilet roll into our network, which is an increase of more than 30 percent on our usual volumes.
She said the stores had plenty of stock for all of us, and encouraged our customers to buy only what they needed and to think of others in the community as they shopped this weekend.
"If customers already have enough toilet roll at home, there is no need to buy more.
"The sooner we see buying patterns return to normal levels, as was the case throughout May and most of June, the quicker we'll be able to wind back limits."
Both Coles and Woolworths reinstated limits in their Victorian stores on June 24 in response to a coronavirus outbreak in Melbourne. Woolworths' Victorian purchase limit allows two items only on toilet paper, hand sanitiser, paper towel, flour, sugar, pasta, mince, long-life milk, eggs and rice. Coles reinstated similar restrictions.
