The panic buying is real. H-E-B has put in place limits on the amount of certain items people can buy.
A follower from Cypress, Texas sent in the photo of the armed police watching over the toilet paper as the coronavirus scare has sent shoppers into panic buying.
There have been many reports of extremely long lines, and major shortages of necessities such as eggs, paper products, and cleaning supplies. Not only at H-E-B, but also at CostCo, Sam's, Walmart, and Targets all throughout Texas.
H-E-B's across Texas have instituted new policies of limits of the amounts each customer can buy so there will be enough to go around for every customer.
