British Supermarkets To Prioritise Elderly

British supermarkets are introducing new measures to help the elderly and those with disabilities as the country was hit with a flurry of panic-buying.

Supermarket chain Sainsbury’s is following the lead set by Iceland, which has set aside a few hours for those in these two groups to shop exclusively.

Sainsbury’s said that on Thursday, its first hour of opening would be set aside for the elderly and vulnerable. It will also give priority to online orders from those over 70 and those with disabilities.

Panic around the coronavirus has seen shoppers stockpiling, leaving shelves stripped of some items including toilet roll and pasta.
