It seems that all the big supermarkets have chosen to open at the same
time - 8 to 9 am - to vulnerable and elderly customers only. All
supermarkets are at least one bus ride from here and as from to-day the
buses are only operating a Sunday service. That means the first bus to
leave here will be at 9.07 am.
The nearest supermarket is a rather small Co-op. The Co-op, of which I
am a member, is the only one (1) from whom I have not had any sort of
communication about current arrangements.
(1) Well, not Lidl or Aldi either, but not a customer so they don't have
my e-mail address.
I went in to the local Co-op today to see what they had. I go past to
the post box. They had plenty of bread, wrapped and sliced and
unsliced, rolls, bagettes etc. All kinds of milk, as normal, ready
meals, no sleaning wipes but there were sprays, only digestives, not
other biscuits. Nust depend on how re-stocking works. It was not
crowded, aisles pretty clear and it is a small shop, but a queue of
about 5 to pay. I was just looking.
I wonder if the panic is over now. I could see in the priority hour
tomorrow at Sainsburys. Did go last night and they had a number of
things that were deleted from my Tescos delivery order for Tuesday.
