LIDL Ireland have implemented priority shopping hours for the elderly across all their 163 stores during the coronavirus situation.
LIDL have issued the following statement:
"We’ve been listening to your feedback and we will be implementing priority shopping hours for the elderly across all 163 Lidl stores in Ireland until further notice.
We ask that the public respect this time period to allow more vulnerable customers to pick up the food and supplies they need.
Starting March 17, the mornings will run from 9am – 11am every day and will include prioritised queuing and additional assistance for our older customers.
We may not be able to actively monitor this at all times as our store teams are required on checkouts and restocking shelves, so we kindly ask that customers respect this measure and plan their shopping trips around this timeframe."
