Some stores are already seeing items like toilet paper and disinfectant wipes flying off shelves. “We absolutely are starting to see shortages again,” Mike Brackett, founder and CEO of Centricity Incorporated, told “Good Morning America.” But grocery stores are now taking preemptive action to prevent panicked hoarding and help ensure that store shelves remain stocked with high-demand items. If you want to stock up on supplies, be aware that these grocery stores have placed limits on how much you can buy. Last updated: Nov. 10, 2020
