Sainsbury’s Easter Egg Rules Changed


SAINSBURY’S has made further changes to its product limits and restrictions as buyers move towards the weekend.

A number of supermarkets have introduced new measures to guarantee sufficient stock for everyone.

But starting Sunday, April 5, Sainsbury will lift product restrictions on a number of items – including Easter eggs.

Writing on the supermarket website, CEO Mike Coupe said, “Starting Sunday, we will start removing some limits on the number of certain non-essentials you can buy.

“Limits will remain in place for the most popular items, including UHT milk, pasta and canned tomatoes.

“We immediately removed the limits for Easter eggs because we know families often want to buy more than three, and we have a lot of them in all stores and online. “

He added: “We want to recognize that we are currently experiencing extremely high demand for certain products and, as such, have introduced quantity restrictions.

“Customers will be able to purchase a maximum of three of all groceries and a maximum of two on the most popular products, including toilet paper, soap and UHT milk.

“We have worked hard with our suppliers to improve the availability of our products.

“Most people are now buying what they need for themselves and their families. That means we often have inventory on the shelves all day and at the end of the day. ”

  • What else is Sainsbury doing?

“We are giving our existing online customers who are vulnerable priority access to online home delivery.

“We are expanding our online grocery and Click & Collect services as quickly as possible. Two weeks ago, we had 370,000 online grocery locations available. we’ll continue to add capacity in the coming weeks.

“Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, all our supermarkets will devote from 08:00 to 09:00 to serve elderly, disabled and accompanying customers.

“The NHS and social workers will be able to shop in our supermarkets for half an hour before they open, Monday to Saturday. Anyone with an NHS ID will be able to shop from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. on these days.

“We have introduced a number of in-store measures to help keep our customers and colleagues as safe as possible while shopping in our stores.
