Instore Shopping/Supermarkets During Coronavirus

Well just done my bi-weekly (every 2 weeks) shop at ASDA and managed to get almost all of it including bog rolls! Alas, couldn't get any tomato puree though and they did seem to be lacking in the tinned food section still. 

Yeah, what is it with the tomato puree panic buying?

 

I went to ASDA Walkley yesterday and they had mountains of brocoli and other fresh veg but not dried pasta, no olive oil and no tomato puree. Very odd.

 

They were letting people in as and when yesterday but advising them on entry about the 2m distancing. It can't have been very successful because pictures I've seen today of queues indicate a one in one out policy.

I notice they did have tape markers on the floor showing  where to stand. Hopefully all this stupid panic buying will be now be in the past.

Its been hell on earth for shelf filling and till staff; not in the same league as NHS staff but its been extremely draining and when this is all over it will all quickly be forgotten.

I went sainsburys at wadsley bridge earlier and it was calm, sensible albeit a lot lower on stock than usual.

 

still got what we needed in main bar a couple of things which I got from local mini-Sainsburys which barring beer - was pretty much stocked as it would be normally.

Most main supermarkets have a limit of the number of people in the store at one time and a 2m distance rule in the queue and at checkouts.

 

Hopefully this puts off the hoarding morons and stock levels return to normal.

Yes I've noticed this now pretty much in all supermarkets- it is the best they can do.

 

Also saw check out lady take additional units of one product (noodles) away from customer- good to see store staff are implementing the rules.

That may be the system in place.

 

Stores have put in a queue system- one in/ one out.

Unfortunately it's not the panic buying morons who are standing waiting in the queue.

It's the one's who didn't stuff their trolleys.

Went to Asda over an hour ago and it was fine with five people outside before me. They’ve got a good system in place which involves going down each aisle in order and going around again if you forget anything. I thanked a few members of staff for what they were doing. I feel a bit sorry for Chris Beech, it’s virtually impossible to put a system in place in his shop due to the layout. It was nice to see his old namesake back behind the counter today.
