Lidl Ireland have announced that priority shopping hours for the elderly will be introduced starting from the morning of St. Patrick's Day.

The priority shopping hours will take place across all 163 Lidl stores in Ireland, between the hours of 9am and 11am every day until further notice. Lidl announced the news today, saying: 'We’ve been listening to your feedback and we will be implementing priority shopping hours for the elderly across all 163 Lidl stores in Ireland, 9-11am every day, until further notice.'

The post goes on to say that 'We ask that the public respect this time period to allow more vulnerable customers to pick up the food and supplies they need. Starting March 17, the mornings will run from 9-11am every day and will include prioritised queuing and additional assistance for our older customers.'

It concludes by saying: 'We may not be able to actively monitor this at all times as our store teams are required on checkouts and restocking shelves, so we kindly ask that customers respect this measure and plan their shopping trips around this timeframe.'

On Sunday, SuperValu Fairways in Dundalk announced they will be open from 7am to 8am for the elderly only during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
