Must See 19/03/2020

Some Kiwi Pak N'Saves are making changes to the way their customers do their groceries in the wake of Coronavirus. 

According to local community Facebook pages, Pak'nSaves around New Zealand are introducing item limits and specialty asiles for shopping. 

A Gisborne Pak'nSave has reportedly introduced a special aisle for the elderly, to help them avoid the spread of germs and bulk panic-buying of other customers.

A sign reading 'elderly customers only' has been popped up in an aisle at the supermarket, according to a  photo posted to the local community page. 

"We apologise for any inconvenience, we want to look after all our customers," the sign reads. 

Pak'nSave Taupo also posted a notice on its Facebook page announcing their new customer limits. 

"As a responsible retailer, we believe that everyone in the community should have access to their share of grocery items," the post reads.

A limit of two per customer was imposed on items like rice, chicken, vegetable & canola oil, flour and toilet paper, while a limit of three per customer was placed on frozen chips and  vegetables. 

Great work!
