Eclipse glasses sell out despite customer limit

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Fred Meyer got a couple last minute shipments in, but each quickly sold out as soon as word spread.

The store has been in contact with other regional stores to share and even out the supply, receiving 400 from another store on Saturday and 800 Sunday morning from Pocatello.

With the latest order they limited the sales to four per customer to avoid running out as quickly.

"We were getting purchases of 500 or 1,000 or 300 that we knew were going to be reselling in different areas and we want to make sure our customers here get what they need," said store manager Rob Wilson.

Wilson said they did everything they could to accommodate customers, making exceptions to the four pair rule for larger families,but even with purchase limits, the glasses sold out in a few short hours the last few pairs going just after 11 Sunday morning.
