Aldi has issued a message to customers as tighter measures are introduced across the UK.
In Wales new rules will come into force today [Thursday, September 24] following a sharp rise in coronavirus cases.
While pubs, cafes, restaurants and casinos will have to close at 10pm and can only provide table service, the latest restrictions also affect supermarkets.
The First Minister, Mark Drakeford, has confirmed that off-licences, including supermarkets, will also have to stop selling alcohol at 10pm.
This week the Prime Minister also said that face coverings needed to be worn by all staff in retail outlets, taxis and indoor hospitality areas, a measure that already exists in Wales, unless you have a "reasonable excuse" not to and came into force on September 14.
In response to the new changes, Aldi has sent an important message to customers, outlining new guidelines and urging shoppers not to panic buy.
Supermarket's CEO Giles Hurley outlined how stores will now operate in an email to customers, reports Manchester Evening News.
The measures Aldi has put in place to protect customers include:
Under new rules, the CEO confirmed that Aldi staff will now wear face coverings while working.
He wrote: "We ask that customers continue to wear a face covering when shopping with us, unless they are exempt from doing so. Our store colleagues will also continue to wear face coverings whilst working in store."
Discussing panic buying, he added: "I would like to reassure you that our stores remain fully stocked and ask that you continue to shop considerately. There is no need to buy more than you usually would. We have remained open for our customers throughout the pandemic and will continue to have daily deliveries, often multiple times a day, across all of our products."
He continued: "We also know many of our customers still need additional support. To those vulnerable customers, please rest assured that the measures we introduced to give you safe access to affordable food, such as early opening times from Monday to Saturday will continue.
"We are also trialling a number of initiatives including an on-demand grocery home delivery in partnership with Deliveroo to help those who cannot currently visit our stores."
He concluded: "While in store, we kindly ask that you try to maintain a safe distance from others at all times, shop by yourself whenever possible and use contactless payment methods if you can."
