Sainsbury’s Updates Rules As Supermarkets Bring Back Buying Limits


Sainsbury’s has updated its rules on who can shop at branches by asking people to go alone if possible.Rules from the latest lockdown – which saw many supermarkets asking people not to shop with partners or families – are being brought down by some chains.

Tesco, Asda, Aldi, Morrisons and Lidl have introduced measures to prevent panic buying and keep shoppers safe – including restoring priority access for NHS workers and vulnerable people, reports The Mirror.

The Sainsbury’s update means couples won’t be allowed to shop together, and families should only enter shops among themselves if the kids can’t stay at home.

A message on the Sainsbury website reads: “We have limited the number of people in our stores and at our ATMs at all times.

“We have also set up queuing systems outside stores and ask you to queue at a safe distance of two meters from each other.

The grocer has also set up a new charity program to support vulnerable and isolated communities before Christmas.

Customers will be able to donate cash, food and other essentials in-store and online, with the supermarket matching each donation between December 1 and 14.

Customers can donate at in-store checkouts by rounding off their bill at supervised checkouts or by adding £ 1, £ 2, £ 5 or £ 10 donation to their cart at self-checkout.

Those who buy online can choose to add a donation of £ 1, £ 2, £ 5 or £ 10 to their online delivery.
