One trip we have been able to make out has been to the supermarket. But our weekly shop hasn't quite been what we were used to. Supermarkets have been one of the only places that have stayed open throughout the pandemic, but it hasn't been like normal. When coronavirus first hit the UK, panic buying began. Supermarkets were forced to restrict certain items and change their opening time to give staff enough time to restock the shelves. As the country went into lockdown, further measures were introduced.

Least busy times to shop at Lidl, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Aldi, Asda and Tesco - Berkshire Live

MRW TSCO +2 more MRW TSCO SBRY WMT

By clicking “Accept” below, you agree to us doing so. Grocery shopping as an experience has completely transformed in lockdown. What was once a fairly simple trip to stock up for the week ahead has become a significant ordeal, as shoppers face long queues in car parks, one-way systems, barriers and protective screens at checkout. As the public is adjusting to this new way of shopping, for many the experience is not getting any more enjoyable. But one thing that could improve your grocery shop is knowing when the peak shopping times are, so you can spend less time in that dreaded car park queue. As our sister site MyLondon reports, a large chunk of the population will be unable to shop while working. As a general rule of thumb this can be applied to all supermarkets, so if you need to pop in quickly it is a good idea to leave later in the day rather than first thing. While it is hard to pinpoint the precise quietest time in your local shop, if you want to check your local store you can put the name into Google and view the "popular times" data, this tool will also show you how busy the store is currently. Find out how you can get the latest news from BerkshireLive delivered straight to your inbox. Of course some stores will vary slightly, and so customers are advised to check their local store opening hours too.

Sainsbury's new boss Roberts faces unexpected in-tray

SBRY

FILE PHOTO: Simon Roberts, Retail and Operations Director of Sainsbury's, poses for a portrait at the company headquarters in London, Britain, May 1, 2019. LONDON (Reuters) - When Sainsbury's (SBRY.L) new boss Simon Roberts hosts a virtual focus group with supermarket shoppers on his first day in charge on Monday, the conversation will be radically different from the one he might have imagined when he got the job. In late January, Britain's second largest supermarket group by sales after Tesco (TSCO.L) announced retail and operations director Roberts would succeed Mike Coupe as chief executive after his six years in the job. Four months on, those problems have been dwarfed by the coronavirus crisis, which has fundamentally changed Britain's retail outlook and raised the prospect of a severe global recession. For Sainsbury's, whose shares are down 16% so far in 2020, the pandemic has boosted grocery sales but hammered demand for fuel, general merchandise and clothing, pushed its bank into a likely annual loss and raised operating costs across the group.

TSCO SBRY +1 more TSCO SBRY WMT

We've taken a look at whether you now have to cover your face when out shopping at the major supermarkets - including Tesco, Aldi, Co-Op, Lidl, Sainsbury's, Asda and M&S. Earlier this month new official advice came out on staying safe outside your home - including telling people to wear face masks in some situations. The BRC's Andrew Opie, said: "Retailers do not require customers to wear face coverings in-store. "Shops can only open if they enforce social distancing measures, which has been the case in thousands of stores who have stayed open.”. While supermarkets have introduced social distancing measures like staggered entry, one-one flow systems and informational signs, there is no guarantee every customer will follow the guidance and always maintain a safe distance from others.

The last few weeks have shown the importance of supermarkets and their staff, providing essential work during the pandemic to make sure everyone is stocked up on what they need during lockdown. However at present, the way we shop has had to change, with many new measures introduced to make sure customers and staff are safe whilst in the store, as well as other restrictions to ensure product availability. Customers are still restricted to buying no more than three of these essentials: toilet rolls and paper goods, household and personal cleaning products including hand sanitisers, packets and tins of food including pasta and rice, fresh eggs and home baking products. Limits on the number of items you can buy at any one time at Asda have been loosened, but the supermarket will place purchase limits on certain products that are high in demand.
