Most supermarkets are offering specific timeslots to allow elderly and vulnerable people to shop without worrying about stock and supplies. Please see below plans from each major supermarket:
"As of 18th March, customers will ONLY be able to buy up to three of any product across all food items, toiletries and cleaning products, so that all of our customers in stores and online have access to the products they and their families need."
"This week we will be temporarily closing our non-essential services, such as cafes and pizza counters, to free up space in our warehouses and capacity for our colleagues to keep the items our customers need on shelves."
"We are temporarily closing our 24 hour stores between 12am and 6am – you can check your local stores opening times on the Asda Store Locator "
"We will set aside the first hour in every supermarket this Thursday 19th March, for elderly and vulnerable customers."
"From Monday 23rd March, our online customers who are over 70 years of age or have a disability will have priority access to online delivery slots. We will contact these customers in the coming days with more details."
"From Monday 23rd March, we will operate an expanded 'click and collect' service. We are significantly increasing the number of collection sites across the country over the coming days in preparation for this. Customers can place their order online as usual and pick it up from a collection point in the store car park. We believe this will also work for people who are self-isolating."
From this Thursday 19th March, we will be closing our cafes and our meat, fish and pizza counters in supermarkets. This means we can free up warehouse and lorry capacity for products that customers really need. It will also free up time for our store colleagues to focus on keeping the shelves as well stocked as possible."
"From Wednesday 18th March, customers will be able to buy a maximum of three of any grocery product and a maximum of two on the most popular products including toilet paper, soap and UHT milk."
From Thursday 19 March:
To ensure more people have access to everyday essentials, we are introducing a storewide restriction of only 3 items per customer on every product line, and removing multi-buy promotions.
In order to allow Tesco colleagues to focus on stocking shelves, helping to provide the essential groceries you are looking for and to avoid waste, we will close all meat, fish, deli counters and salad bars.
To be able to ensure our stores are clean, that we can replenish stock, and allow our colleagues to rest, we will change our trading hours with all stores closing at 10pm.
To ensure we are doing everything possible to reduce the risk of infection for both our customers and colleagues, we will be introducing some distancing measures at the checkout and, to make it swifter, invite customers who can, to pay by card.
To help free up slots for the more vulnerable, such as our elderly customers and those who are self-isolating, we are encouraging customers who shop online or choose Click+Collect for their grocery home shopping, to prioritise shopping in-store where possible.
To ensure our more vulnerable and elderly customers can shop in-store, we will prioritise one hour every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning between 9-10am (except in our Express stores) and ask that you respect this.
Iceland outlets across the country have introduced reserved time slots to give the vulnerable and the elderly a chance to shop in store.
"We have had to place temporary quantity restrictions on some items so as many customers as possible can get the items they need. We’re working hard with our suppliers to help meet demand. Please note there may be similar restrictions on some items in store."
In Ireland Lidl branches are opening early for elderly and vulnerable customers. No restrictions or rule changes have been published in the UK although branches may have their own.
"Customers are currently limited to buying four items of any one product during each visit."
"We are currently not accepting returned bags - please keep them, we will collect them all once we are able to do so."
"We have had to restrict the quantity permitted per order on certain high demand products. This is so that we can continue to serve as many customers as possible."
It is also employing 3,500 more staff for home deliveries and installing hand sanitiser at tills.
