Sainsbury’s Chief Executive Mike Coupe has announced measures to assist customers and especially those in the vulnerable group.
From Thursday 19th. the first hour of opening will be dedicated to elderly and vulnerable customers. You will need to check individual stores for opening times and further details.
from the 23rd of March online customers those over the age of 70 or within the vulnerable group will be given priority access to delivery slots. Online customers will be contacted by Sainsbury over the next few days.
For any online customer that can travel to a Sainsbury store the ‘click and collect’ service is being expanded. Customers will be able to order their goods on line and pick them up from a collection point in the Car Park.
In order to ensure that the more essential items can be put of the shelfs from Thursday 19th March, the cafes, meat, fish and pizza counters will be close. This action will see up warehouse and lorry capacity for products that customer really need. It will also free up time for staff to restock the shelfs.
From Wednesday 18th March, customers will be restricted to buying three of any grocery product and a maximum of two of the most popular products including toilet paper, soap and UHT milk.
