ParknShop supermarkets and Watsons pharmacies are imposing restrictions on the purchase of certain products in the wake of a rash of panic buying sparked by fears of a lockdown when Hong Kong launches its universal coronavirus testing drive later this month.
From Friday onwards, at ParknShop supermarkets, five categories of products are subject to restrictions – rice, canned food, noodles, boxed eggs, toilet tissue and medicine – with customers only allowed to purchase five units of each in a single transaction.
At health and beauty retailer Watsons, also starting on Friday, purchases of all pain relief and cold and flu medications are restricted to five units of each per customer, per transaction.
Both chains pledged to work with distributors to keep their stocks up and prices steady, reiterating that supplies were stable for the time being.
