Exactly you could say that she was being responsible by visiting the shop during her allowed exercise time


That was my first thought and it would work if she was on foot.

Hard to convince anyone that you're excercising if you're in the car though . . .



Ok, but what if your intention was to purchase essential items but non were available? Should you get fined for buying a bottle of wine while standing 2 metres apart in the shop or wait there and buy nothing until you're allowed to leave in sequence?

You'd be pretty unfortunate to find that the shop held absolutely none of the items that you (allegedly) went in there for and I rather think that the authorities would take that point of view.

As for queuing to be allowed out, empty handed or otherwise; I've yet to encounter that.

Yes it is unfortunate as specific essentials aint there, plus in our local shops you are in a one way queuing system so you would encounter waiting to leave..

That happened to me in Taunton Tesco. Once I had everything I intended to buy, I wanted to take a short cut but the duty manager ruled that I'd have to take the approved route or leave the store, presumably without my shopping.

Wasn't I at increased risk by staying in the store for longer than I really needed to?

Isn't it a merchandiser's dream to make the punters walk by every product at snail's pace?

Doubtful, you'd probably be more at risk by trying to bypass the control measures they have in place, measures which are there to protect everyone and it helps everyone feel a little safer if you follow those measures.

I've encountered organised queuing to pay for my shopping and I agree that it makes sense.
I wouldn't queue if I had nothing to buy though.
Maybe the shop staff around here are applying the rules with a modicum of common sense; there's certainly nothing draconian about their approach as far as I can see.

Then why go into the shop in the first place ?

Jeff, go back a few posts.

We're talking about the (very unlikely) scenario in which the shop has absolutely none of the items that you went in for on the shelves.

How would you propose to pass other shoppers and still maintain the 2 metre social distancing?

So you are able to tell what the store has in stock before you walk in?

I see you are totally equipped with the information of what items were required and what stock is available in my local store.Wink
