Publix places purchase limits on more holiday staples due to ongoing shortages

Christmas is almost here, and Publix is placing restrictions on holiday related goods like pie crust, coconut flakes, frozen hash browns and even coffee creamer.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Even more items have been added to a growing list of purchase limits at Publix Supermarket stores across the country.

Prior to Thanksgiving, you may have noticed shelves looking a bit bare as the country continues to battle ongoing supply issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

An increased holiday demand forced Publix Supermarkets establish purchase limits for certain items like plastic plates, gravy, cutlery, bacon, toilet paper, and more.

Now, Christmas is almost here, and Publix is placing restrictions on holiday related goods like pie crust, coconut flakes, frozen hash browns and even coffee creamer.
