Sainsbury's Wantage - stock update & special opening hours for OAPs & NHS staff

on Thu, 26/03/2020 - 3:40pm

Sainsbury's will now allow NHS and social care workers to shop for half an hour before the stores normally open each day - anyone with NHS ID will be able to shop from 07.30-08.00 every day from Monday to Saturday. 

In addition to this, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Sainsbury's supermarkets will dedicate 08.00-09.00 to serving elderly customers, disabled customers and carers.

Sainsbury's will now limit the number of people allowed in their stores at any one time. They are putting queuing systems in place outside stores and will ask everyone to queue at a safe distance of 2m apart.

Sainsbury's have been able to identify a number of customers as elderly and vulnerable based on the information they have previously provided. These details would include date of birth and if you have ever used our vulnerable customer helpline. For all of these customers, Sainsbury's will have now emailed you with information on when slots will become available.

Sainsbury's have had to put restrictions on a larger number of products. Customers will be able to buy a maximum of three of any grocery product and a maximum of two on the most popular products including toilet paper, soap and UHT milk. 

Sainsbury's have said that they have enough food for everyone - if everyone just buys what they need for them and their families. Please don't panic buy.
