BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Some Western New York grocery stores are putting a purchase limit on items, like hand sanitizer, due to COVID-19, or the coronavirus.

Disinfecting and cleaning products have been flying off store shelves in recent weeks.

Wegmans posted this information on their website:
"To help ensure the availability of high-demand items for all customers, we are limiting the purchase of hand sanitizer, rubbing alcohol, alcohol wipes and prep pads, and hydrogen peroxide to 3 each per order. We continue to receive shipments of these products and are pushing them out to stores as soon as they arrive."

Tops Markets says they will also be "limiting hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes to three (3) per customer to allow as much available inventory for our customers as possible."
