CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — During the fight against COVID-19, stores like H-E-Bs across the Coastal Bend have been packed with customers. In an effort to make sure everyone gets the items they need, the store has set a limit on certain items, which was updated on Tuesday.

Senior manager of Public Affairs Regina Garcia told KRIS 6 News the company is not aware of a resurgence in buying products — or panic buying — like many were in the beginning of the pandemic. However, staff are keeping an eye on purchases, and the product limit may change as often as daily.
