Latvia's Lidl restricts purchase quantity of some goods

Retailer Lidl has placed a limit on the number of certain items per one buyer. Rimi and Maxima do not plan such restrictions, representatives told LETA on March 14.

Lidl's stores have recently seen increased demand for different products and, in order to ensure fair access for all shop customers, a temporary restriction on the number of goods sold to one customer has been introduced, said Lidl Latvija representative Ingars Rudzītis.

He said that the restrictions imposed on the purchase of goods mainly concern foods with long shelf life, as well as various hygiene products, including toilet paper.

Maxima stores have also seen increased demand for these products, and some customers buy more than they need but the Maxima stores do not plan to introduce a limit for certain goods, said Laura Bagātā, spokeswoman for Maxima Latvija. Maxima stores have been working to replenish shop shelves. With deliveries gradually normalizing, in the near future, the goods currently missing will be delivered in the required quantities.

Restrictions are not planned at the Rimi network, either, said Rimi representative MIlans Blūms. He said that the Rimi e-store had had a limit on some items since the very beginning so that delivery flows can be organized.

As reported earlier, stores have seen a rapid increase in demand for salt, and assure that it will not run out and there is no need to stockpile.
