Supermarket giant Tesco has urged shoppers who plan to buy alcohol in its stores this week to go to the pub instead.
As pubs and bars reopened on Monday for the first time in England since December, the retailer urged customers to support their local alcoholic.

Manchester Evening News reports that the supermarket chain released a statement on Facebook.

He said: “The pubs have had a hard time this year. As good as our offers are, this week we would prefer you to support your local pub (as long as you feel safe doing so). Because right now #EveryLittleHelps. Excludes Scotland, NI and Wales. Drinkaware.co.uk for 18+ facts. ”

Responding to the post, a shopper said, “What a thoughtful advertisement, I honestly think I’ll wait until I can drink inside. Well done Tesco. “

About 40% of the country’s boozers are expected to resume serving customers, with some pubs staying open until the early hours to offer a chilled drink of freedom after lockdown.

Lines of people were seen outside a Coventry pub, The Oak Inn, shortly before midnight.

Britons are expected to consume 15 million pints this week, with half of the adult population planning to rush to a pub or restaurant in the next seven days.

Only outdoor areas such as patios and beer gardens can open while indoor areas are closed until at least May 17.

Each customer aged 16 and over will need to register for an NHS test and follow-up before entering a place, or give contact details to staff.

Only groups of no more than six can meet at the pub and there will be no strict 10pm curfew.

Social distancing will also need to be maintained, so bettors can expect one-way systems and staggered queues before using the restroom or heading to your table.

Speaking of lifting lockdown restrictions, Boris Johnson said: “Monday is a major milestone in our roadmap to freedom as places such as shops, hairdressers, nail salons, outdoor attractions, pubs and restaurants are reopening.

“I’m sure this will be a huge relief for the business owners that have been closed for so long, and for everyone else it’s a chance to get back to doing some of the things we love and missed. .

“I urge everyone to continue to behave responsibly and remember the ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’ to suppress Covid as we continue our vaccination program.”
