I was wondering what constituted 'essential' items as I drove down to the
store earlier (some supermarkets having made crazy selections).
The 'middle of Lidl' WIGIG racks were all full but turned to face each
other, I suppose they couldn't cancel the Sunday offers delivery. But I was
pleased to find their list of essentials included chocolate (including
special occasion versions), ice cream and alcohol.
The major bonus for me, compared with recent visits, was the general lack
of other customers and those there were were each on their own - no couples
or families. I think I like lockdown...
My answer to your query from this end of Wales is... I haven't a clue!
Today I needed some ready mixed plaster (I was convinced I still had
some from last year, but after turning the place upside down I admitted
Wofe 'instructed' me to go out and get some (after a few withering looks
over the missing plaster).
I pointed out that only shops selling essential items can open and this
could hardly be considered...
I checked. The local Screwfix _was_ open & I got my plaster.
Tampons? Evidently thought to be a borderline case.
Mixed Plaster? No problem!
 In the middle of nowhere & happily (for me) almost entirely empty.
Trust me, you cannot replace tampons with ready mixed plaster.
