Lidl Ireland has called on customers to 'show compassion' when interacting with staff during the Covid-19 crisis.

Soon after Leo Varadkar's announcement yesterday about measures being taken to stop the spread of Covid-19, supermarkets were packed with people picking up some bits before spending a few weeks at home.

With supermarkets saying that panic buying is 'an inconvenience to other customers', Lidl has also called on the public 'to show compassion when interacting with our hardworking store teams during this demanding period.' 

A post on Twitter adds that 'due to our robust and agile supply chain we're confident of maintaining supply of key lines as consumer demand remains high and our stores are continuing to receive deliveries as planned. However, the supermarket chain has also said that 'we've put product quantity limitations in place on a select few product lines to ensure availability for as many customers as possible, and we would ask that customers respect these measures.'

The post goes on to say 'our teams in our stores & distribution centres are working tirelessly to continue to maintain availability of food & supplies for families across the country' and you can read it in full here.
