Publix is placing per-customer limits on certain food items as Thanksgiving demand smashes up against ongoing supply chain issues.

The Lakeland-based chain of grocery stores is limiting the following items to two per customer ahead of the holiday:



— Canned cranberry sauce
— Jarred gravy
— Canned pie filling
— Canola and vegetable oil
— Cream cheese
— Bacon
— Rolled breakfast sausage
— Paper napkins
— Disposable plates, cups, and cutlery
— Bath tissue
— Refrigerated snacks (Lunchable type items)
— Sports drinks
— Aseptic type juices (Capri sun)
— Canned cat food (variety packs)
— Refrigerated pet food

The limits are universal across all Publix stores.



The Florida chain is far from alone in feeling the holiday squeeze. Winn-Dixie is limiting turkey purchases in its stores to one per customer. None of the other holiday items are being limited by the Jacksonville-based store.
