BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Tops is putting limits on how much meat a customer can buy.
Temporarily, the grocery chain says people can only buy two packages of the following items at a time — fresh beef (including ground beef), fresh pork (including marinated pork), and fresh chicken.
It’s not clear how long these restrictions will be in place, but they began on Saturday.
Wegmans is also limiting some meat purchases for consumers. Officials said Monday:
“Beginning in March, we placed a 2-item purchase limit on Family Pack 80% Ground Beef and Family Pack Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast. Around that same time, we also started encouraging customers to prioritize their needs and limit all meat department purchases. This has allowed us to better manage our inventory and meet the needs of as many customers as possible.”
