Asda the bosses will visit the stores of Hull after the customers affirmed a social distancing “free for all”.
Many said they were afraid when visiting Aswood in Kingswood store that customers rushed to go to the checkouts.
A woman from North Hull said on Wednesday: “No staff member ever reminded people when they were doing their work or were dedicated to supervising these matters …
“The crates were free for everyone with no system in place. I have never felt so in danger.”
Another customer at Asda Hessle Road store said, “If you’re wondering where the second wave of coronavirus will come from, it’s here.”
MP for Hull East Karl Turner tweeted that he has also received complaints about clients who do not practice social distancing at Asda.
And after writing to the general manager of the supermarket, the chain agreed to take action.
Turner said in a Tweet, “Based on your comments, regional compliance officers will visit the stores in Mount Pleasant and Kingswood to assess the implementation of the social distancing measures.”
An Asda spokesman said on Wednesday: “We have deployed a large number of social distancing measures in all our stores in Hull to ensure the safety of our customers and colleagues.
“We ask our customers to continue to follow the guidelines clearly indicated in our stores.
“We continue to follow England Public Health guidelines to protect our customers and colleagues, including various social distancing measures such as limiting the number of people in the store at all times, two meter markers, checkout barriers and other key points around the store among other measures. “
