Can anyone tell me how Tesco / Co-op are handling customers? I know that Tesco has an hour three times a week for older people. How many do they let in at any one time or is it a free for all? I do not know what the Co-op is doing. Thank you.

Tesco has people right throughout the store (entry to exit) to "marshall" customers.  Doesn't seem to prevent some idiots blocking aisles whilst they "chat" with people they know, and nobody tells them to "move along please".  Don't they know there's a war on.  !! 

The floors are also taped out into "zones" for "social distancing".  They seem to be largely ignored.  Don't they know there's a war on...!!

There also seem to be more than a few people taking their kids in and (appearing to) let them run around.  Don't they know there's a war on...!!

 

On the plus side, despite having to wait in line (for a checkout) behind 2 gossiping women with VERY full barrows, I was in and out in less than 20 minutes and got what I needed.  Oh, and I had a nice pleasant chat with a very pretty checkout operator as she passed my stuff through.  :thmbsup

 

Some staff look a little "stressed" though.  Sympathise with them.

 

Haven't been in the Co-op for a few days but, I guess they might have a similar approach.

Thank you, Colin, for the info. Do you know if the alcohol restriction is in place for the old ones between 9 and 10 am?

No idea about the alcohol.  I don't drink.. :ponders: and, "older people" is pretty subjective.

Have people calmed down over bogroll yet or is the T.P. Mafia going to be where you buy them soon.

 

How far away are we from this
