Sainsbury’s introduces trolley limit just days before Christmas

The Christmas period will be very different this year, and supermarkets are having to change their rules in order to keep everyone safe.

With the government’s new Tier 4 announcement, and Christmas bubble change, many people will need to be heading to the supermarkets to buy food.

Stores across the country already saw a huge spike in customers after Prime Minister Boris Johnson ’s announcement on Saturday.

Sainsbury’s has made some changes in order to keep everyone safe through the festive period.

In a bid to give people a chance to grab what they need for Christmas, Sainsbury’s has issued a one trolley per person policy, Manchester Evening News reports.

As usual, Sainsbury’s is asking customers to “only send one adult per households”, as this will “help us manage the number of people in our stores and make your shop quicker and smoother”.

Sainsbury’s reminded customers on social media: “Our stores will be really busy coming up to Christmas.

“To help us maintain social distancing for customers and colleagues and reduce queues, please shop alone wherever possible.”

Sainsbury’s has also increased the number of home delivery and Click and Collect stocks available to 750,000.

The supermarket giant has also extended store opening hours from 6am to midnight.

Customers are being asked to keep a safe distance of two metres apart, and are urged to wear face coverings.

All Sainsbury’s staff have to wear face coverings while in-store, unless exempt according to the government guidelines.

A spokesperson for Sainsbury's added: "As we keep working hard to feed the nation, we are focused on getting as much food and other essential items as possible onto shelves.

"We have a good supply of stock so please also continue to buy what you need for yourself and your family and there will be enough for everyone."
