Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Aldi and Lidl’s restrictions – latest rules on what you can buy


Many of the supermarket chains still have shopping restrictions in place on certain items, while some have completely lifted the rules while asking customers to be mindful of others. 

There are also new rules in place for shoppers, such as wearing face masks, social distancing in store and paying with contactless wherever possible. 

Here are the latest updates for the supermarkets on how many products you can buy across the most popular and in-demand items. 


Tesco has different rules depending on whether you’re buying online or shopping in store. 

For those going into Tesco stores, there are no limits on any products except for its new face coverings, which have a limit of three units per customer. 

However, online shoppers are unable to stock up on too many items at once. 

On its website, Tesco said it has imposed “a limit of three units on online orders of face coverings, antibacterial handwash, antibacterial wipes, flour, and eggs”. 

“We continue to encourage customers to buy only what they need, to help ensure there’s enough for everyone,” Tesco added. 

There are also limits to how much you can order online in total. 

“To make sure more people have access to everyday essentials, we’ve introduced a limit of 85 items per online order,” the website read.

“As our stock levels are starting to return to normal, we’re removing purchase limits on most of our products. On some products such as toilet roll, alcohol, pasta, and hand sanitisers, we’ve kept these limits until we’re fully stocked up again.”
