I've just been to Sainsburys and been overwhelmed by the crowds of people in there. It is not safe. Does anyone know if there are plans to start limiting the amount of shoppers allowed in at any one time again soon?

Gill, probably best to ask a member of staff inside the store.

Most people to be fair wear a face covering now in Sainsbury’s. But I have seen a young couple man and woman on both my last visits who seemly are refusing to do the decent thing and wear a face covering to help protect others.
They may have a valid medical reason. But if they are both this medically challenged then surely it makes more sense for them to avoid busy supermarkets where apparently most infections occur.

Each time I’ve been in a member of staff has been standing in the entrance by the flowers counting people in and counting people back out, I assume to keep their numbers to the correct level. I’ve never had a problem. If you have a issue you should definitely speak to a member of staff or even better the manager. Posting on here isn’t really going to help.

Try going to the supermarket at a different time, try nine pm it's quiet then. You also get good deals on the food that will need to be thown away the next day.

Because of the current situation I have been shopping in Sainsburys in the evening. As the weather is colder this now is less appealing so I asked one of the staff last week when was the best time to shop to avoid crowds. She said that around middle of the day and lunchtime seem to be the busiest times so looking at your post Gill which was posted 14:03:03 and you saying that you had just been to Sainsburys, it would seem that unfortunately you went shopping at the busiest time. Perhaps early morning or late afternoon would be better. I do sympathise as I don't like crowds at the best of times, let alone now, but I really don't want to have to go back to queuing. Today I had to wait 20 minutes in the drizzly cold outside the Pharmacy in Grayshott as they allow only 2 customers in shop at the same time. Not pleasant.

Back in the War when I was a kid we used to have to queue for ages for our rations, much easier now, country has gone soft

Ian, pardon me for asking but would I be correct in assuming you are in your eighties?

Ian, your moniker name wouldn't be Uncle Albert by any chance?
