At least one Rockford grocery store is trying to control the whole "it's the end of the world so let's buy all the toilet paper" craze that has hit the area. Woodman's has begun selling certain items in limited quantities.

In a live Facebook video shared by Eyewitness News, Elliot Grandia reported Woodman's Market closing overnight to restock shelves.

This is crazy because. although a majority of the shelve-stocking at Woodman's does happen overnight, that store rarely shuts down their 24/7 operation. And it appears as though the massive grocery store is attempting to control the number of products that are purchased, including bottled water and toilet paper.

One customer shared this on Facebook.

6am at Woodmans. They’re PACKED. And the news is here 😳 I just needed a pie for pi day 😂
