Aldi has commenced rolling out new social distancing measures across its 142 stores nationwide. The new measures include posters in-store and clear markings on the floor for queuing. Aldi will also very shortly commence the installation of protective screens at every till to safeguard its colleagues and customers alike.
Aldi Buying Director John Curtin commented on the new measures being taken, saying:
“The safety and health of our customers and staff is our number one priority at this time and we are following all relevant HSE guidelines in this respect. The more we work together, the more we can do our collective part to keep our communities safe, while still ensuring everyone has the food they need”.
Aldi has also implemented its new priority shopping hours for the elderly and those most vulnerable between 11am and 1pm each day. The retailer has asked customers to consider this measure when planning their shopping trip.
