Publix, Winn-Dixie limit Thanksgiving items; blame the supply chain
AUGUSTA, Ga. - Two grocery chains are limiting the number of items sold to customers ahead of the busy Thanksgiving holiday.
Officials say Publix and Winn-Dixie are placing limits on some items due to the ongoing supply chain issues.
Publix operates nearly 1,300 stores across seven states in the Southeast.
Winn-Dixie has stores in five Southern states, including Georgia.
Last week, Publix began limiting customers to two each of key Thanksgiving items including canned cranberry sauce, pie filling, jarred gravy, cream cheese and bacon. Winn-Dixie is limiting turkeys to one per customer.
The supply-chain issues are also at least partly to blame for rising cost for holiday meals.
An informal survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation finds dinner for a family of 10 will cost an average of $53.31. That is $6.41 more than last year.
