SINGAPORE - NTUC FairPrice assured customers today that it is continuing to work closely with suppliers and MOH to bring in more stocks of face masks to meet customers' needs.
About 250,000 N95 face masks manufactured by Kimberly Clark and priced below $2 each will be available at all 115 FairPrice supermarkets, FairPrice Finest and FairPrice Xtra hypermarkets islandwide from Saturday onwards.
In fulfilling its social mission to moderate the cost of living, the face masks have been affordably priced to curb profiteering and to set benchmark prices, NTUC FairPrice said.
Last weekend, FairPrice saw its first shipment of close to 2 million face masks including 3M N95 face masks, 3-ply and 4-ply surgical face masks.
To ensure more households are able to obtain N95 face masks, FairPrice limited the purchase of N95 face masks to 10 pieces per person.
These limits on N95 face masks will continue to be in place at the stores, including the new consignment of N95 face masks by Kimberly Clark, the supermarket chain said.
For more information, the public may contact FairPrice through its customer hotline at 6552 2722 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
