Low-budget retailer Aldi has put in place more measures to ensure that social distancing is maintained in all of its stores to coronavirus.
Aldi consulted his official Twitter account to inform buyers of the limits of his new customers and his advice to those who plan to take their children with them.
Aldi is now implementing a “one person, one cart” rule in all of its stores. His tweet said, “Please shop individually as much as possible. To help with social distancing, we encourage all customers to try to reduce the number of family members they bring with them to our stores.”
The tweet was shared with an image that also included a statement in which Aldi asked parents to “shop alone if possible”.
However, where some parents might not be able to do so, children would be admitted to its stores. The statement said, “When parents want, they can do their shopping with their kids, but like all supermarkets, we ask people to shop alone if possible to promote social distancing in our stores.”
Since sharing the tweet last night, Aldi has received messages of praise and support from other buyers on Twitter.
User @Jocanlose said, “It was about time, too many families in Aldi yesterday.”
@LesleyinCity said: “It makes perfect sense.”
And RCuttingedge said, “The staff at Aldi have been amazing.”
It comes after Asda used its own Twitter feed to clarify its rules regarding allowed children in its stores after rumors circulated on social media.
Speaking to Twitter, a supermarket spokesperson said: “You may have seen shared messages on social media suggesting that families with children will not be allowed in our stores. This is not the case. .
“Everyone in the UK is invited by the government to make reasonable purchases and only when necessary. When necessary, we limit the total number of customers we allow in a store at any given time.
“If possible, it would help us a lot if you could bring fewer family members when you visit our stores.
“This will help us maintain the social distancing guidelines that we already have in place.”
