Tesco’s chief executive says that panic-buying seems to have eased, after the stockpiling witnessed at the start of the coronavirus outbreak. In an email to customers, Tesco CEO Dave Lewis said a new, ‘more normal’ pattern of shopping was beginning to emerge. This will come as a relief to many, as research found that 76% of shoppers experienced product shortages in March.
Mr Lewis wrote: ‘As the Prime Minister has said, it looks like we are nearer to the beginning of all this than the end. We are still learning, and still adjusting, so that we can provide you with the food and essentials you need.’
The comments came as some supermarkets – but not Tesco – began to relax the limits placed on grocery purchases in recent weeks.
