My nearest couple of Tesco stores never got rid of them. Never seen them on anything other than green eitherI notice my local Tesco have switched back on the "Red / Green" light system. That said it was red the other day and they were not preventing people from entering the store.

I've not yet seen a queue outside a shop in Wales but all the petty barriers are back at Sainsburys and there is someone just inside the door badgering people about masks. Absurdly the entrance door is the one further away from where the trolleys are parked.Has anything changed anywhere in the UK with regard to one way systems, masks, traffic lights and queuing outside being reintroduced ?
Nothing seems to have changed in Scotland - in Falkirk at least.
Not surprising to be honest; why would supermarkets implement (costly and operationally restrictive) measuresGood to hear Supermarkets son't seem to be implementing such draconian methods as earlier in the year.
Covid was a convenient excuse. Someone I know who works for Waitrose said it was costing the company a fortune, and a lot of "customers" came in, helped themselves to the coffee and went out again without buying anything.I note with some disappointment that Waitrose have not re-instated their free coffee, which was removed 'due to Covid'.
Because they're buying your personal data in the form of shopping preferences.Tesco Hinckley still have their 2 staffed basket tills but not been used for more than 2 years. They blocked off by displays. Also why do they fleece you if you have no Club card? I do and always use it but for anyone without one it's easily one of most pricey supermarkets.
Yes they are. I always try to pay by cash when I can too cause I don't want my bank knowing how much I spend on where and how often etc. Do find Asda best for prices out of the big 4 and don't go Lidl due to poor quality. I really do recommend Morrison's breakfasts now they had improved the selection of food-I had medium one last week with a cup of apple juice for less than 7 quid! No more pricey than Wetherspoons now and much nicer too!!Because they're buying your personal data in the form of shopping preferences.
Lucky you. In Wales they are really going for it. All we need now is queuing in the rain to come back and we're basically back to last winter.Just come back from nearest Sainsburys, hand sanitiser but running out and the cleaner for the baskets/ trolleys. No restriction on numbers coming in or out, no staff member near the entrance (one woman cause the alarm to go off, repeated it when no-one turned up, in the end she went looking for a staff member), shoppers going out of the 'in' door (at one time there was a physical barrier to stop that). There was less monitoring than last summer - at least then there was security or a staff member by the door (even if it was to encourage shoppers to self scan).
I was wondering about those 2 tills as well, don't go very often as I'm closer to Morrisons but only go to Tesco if visiting the g/f's family. As for the clubcard, maybe that's another discussion threadTesco Hinckley still have their 2 staffed basket tills but not been used for more than 2 years. They blocked off by displays.

Tesco obviously thought there was some kind of commercial benefit in it after freedom day; they maintained limits (although perhaps they were so high they knew that it was highly unlikely they’d ever be required) and also had out of all the supermarkets the strongest pro-mask signage.Not surprising to be honest; why would supermarkets implement (costly and operationally restrictive) measures
above and beyond what the law dictates - it doesn't make any sense whatsoever from a commercial point of view?
Toolstation used to have a Klix machine offering free hot drinks, this was still out of service last timeI note that every other establishment (other supermarkets, petrol stations etc) that have similar coffee machines have either reinstated them, or never switched them of in the first place. Amusingly, my local petrol station's Costa machine has a notice saying it remains in service to support critical workers, but they have removed the stirrers and napkins as a precaution!
Yes, Tesco like that down south is like that. Only place in last 8 months in England I have come across enforcing numbers still.The Tesco near my uni building and Leeds General Imfirmary went red quite a few times at lunchtimes. I’ve not noticed if it still has the lights, but when the light was red the door sensors were turned off from the outside so it was impossible to enter.
