Grocers: Priority Entrance For Essential Workers

April 3, 2020 | 3 Comments

Arnold’s, Lindo’s, Harrington Hundreds, Marketplace, Miles and SuperMart will be “extending priority entrance to our stores for all essential workers over the next two weeks,” the companies have announced.

A spokesperson said, “In this trying time, we want to ensure that those on the front lines, looking after us all and keeping things running smoothly, get the support and supplies that they need. As such, Arnold’s, Lindo’s, Harrington Hundreds, Marketplace, Miles and SuperMart will be extending priority entrance to our stores for all essential workers over the next two weeks.

“Those who qualify must present themselves to security on arrival at the store with a valid work ID or a letter from their employer. They will then be admitted to the store at the next available opportunity.

“We also recognise that we need to assist those most vulnerable, so those who are disabled may have priority entrance, if they provide a valid disabled person’s card.

“We would remind everyone to please be mindful of maintaining six feet distance from our employees and fellow shoppers and to wash/sanitise your hands before entering the store.

“We also want to stress that each household must limit themselves to one shopper and that they should only buy what they need for one week’s worth of groceries as directed by the Government.”

    As an essential worker, I thank you for this. It has been difficult to get to the grocery store when knocking off at 5pm and the stores close at 6pm. There are lines there before work and after work and I was wondering when I could do my grocery shopping. Thank you again. I hope the people in line will understand.

      Wow …I am employed as a nurse at a government run nursing facility for the elderly, we are on the front line too. We got exemptions as essential workers do we not get these privileges as well not even the gas discount the the “real” front line workers were granted. I guess like many of our patients we too are placed in the back not the front line??

  2. Really really they missed a few key public officers on key departments and it is not cool at all
