Last week, Tuskys Supermarkets restricted the buying in bulk of Coronavirus sanitization products after reports indicated some traders were buying and reselling at exorbitant prices.
Additionally, Tuskys has partnered with Sendy– a delivery service to facilitate online shopping from their city branches.
The retailer has assured its customers against fears that they were running out of stock following widespread reports of panic buying of essential household items.
This came after President Uhuru Kenyatta confirmed three cases of Coronavirus in the country.
The deadly virus has so far killed some 7,000 people, infected over 180,000 people while close to 80,000 have recovered from it.
