Days after panic buying saw shelves stripped of basic goods, Woolworths has banned 'change of mind' refunds on a list of products.

"No one had cleaned it up and they didn’t seem too worried about it," Thomson claimed.

"Mind you there was a whole team stocking the freezers in the aisle next to where the incident had happened."
