As if we didn't have enough bad news being fired at us every day. Now the one thing that is likely helping us get through the day has been slapped with a big ol lockdown restriction.

Woolworths' alcohol retailers BWS and Dan Murphy’s have been forced to make restrictions due to the coronavirus hoarding sensation.

“To ensure everyone can access the drinks they love we are placing temporary restrictions on the amount of products available for purchase per customer per day,” Dan Murphy’s says on its website.

“These are subject to change at any time and we reserve the right to cancel items from your order if they are exceeding our limits or our ability to supply.”

So, How Much Can I Buy?

Restrictions include a maximum of three casks of wine, beer, cider or premixed drinks, a maximum of six bottles of spirits and 18 bottles of wine from Dan Murphy’s. The limits apply per customer, per day.

Okay, so unless you're having some sort of house party (not allowed!!) you should be ok.


BWS has also introduced similar restrictions.

“To ensure there is enough for everyone, there is now a per customer, per shop limit on all beer, wine & spirits, in store and online,” BWS said online.

A limit of four cases of beer, premixed drinks and cider applies, as well as a purchase limit of four bottles of spirits, three casks or 12 bottles of wine.

So, we think that should be (just) enough to get you through your homeschooling day... 

We can do this!
