Thanksgiving meal shopping is in full force this week, and one grocery store is limiting the number of certain items you can buy as the United States continues to battle supply chain issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Publix shoppers will only be allowed to buy a lower amount of some Thanksgiving Day essentials, according to First Coast News.

“The limits are for all stores in our seven-state operating area,” a Publix official told First Coast News. “There is not a set time determined for these limits, and the list can change to include more items or remove items.”
