That's what I was wondering,I thought are they going to make an announcement that people had to leave over the tannoy so the vulnerable people could have their time,it seems unworkable I have seen photos of queues of people outside the stores with many people waiting to enter,it must be a scrum when the doors open.Well so much for Tescos advertised special hour for elderly and vulnerable from 9-10am. I got there this morning for 9 as did many others. The shop was full of people who had been shopping. There was nobody on the door monitoring things and no evidence of this time being for elderly and vulnerable. I heard a lady remonstrating with a member of staff who just said we'll we've been open since 6! Exactly so how did they plan on making that hour restricted and how were they planning on making sure there was actually food to buy. Ok some shelves were ok but no potatoes at all, no eggs, no toilet rolls. There were very limited supplies of cheese, fresh meat, bread, coffee. The veg section in the freezer cabinets was virtually empty, just a few Yorkshire puddings, chips, sweet potato wedges. Even the cat food shelves had been raided, mostly the expensive stuff left. So it looks like it will be back to plan A on Monday, get there for 6am and be prepared to queue outside and camp out in the aisles if the shelves haven't been stocked with the things I want. The other thing was the self scan wasn't working so I had to go back to the old queueing at the checkout and unloading my shopping into the conveyor belt then into my bags. The one good thing was that at the checkout they had a line in the floor to stay behind so that people weren't too close together. Of course we had all been closer than that in the queue!
