As the national ‘Toilet Paper Crisis’ continues, more stores have followed Woolworths in restricting the amount of toilet paper customers can purchase at checkout.

On Thursday, Coles announced that it’s limiting toilet roll purchases to four packs per person, per transaction.

ALDI has gone with the four-pack limit, however they’ve also enforced a 10 pack limit for essentials like long-life milk, hygiene produces and tissues.

Costco, which is the ultimate place for bulk-buying, is restricting customer to two 48-packs of toilet paper.

This begs the question – what exactly is this ‘crisis’ and why is everybody stockpiling toilet paper?
