The two metre rule

Since July 4 the Government has allowed ‘one metre plus’ social distancing in England, but so far no supermarkets have made changes to their current two-metre rules.

Virtual queuing system trials

At the moment shoppers may have to queue-up outside stores that are limiting the amount of customers allowed in at any given time, but that could soon be about to change.

Sainsbury’s and Waitrose are trialling a virtual queuing system that lets customers wait in the car rather than standing in line.

One-way aisle systems scrapped

Tesco has ended its one-way aisle system despite some backlash from shoppers.

Morrisons, which used to have different queuing zones for trolley shoppers and basket shoppers, has removed its queuing zones in some stores.
