Pick n Pay implements special pensioners shopping hour_1


All Pick n Pay supermarkets and hypermarkets will open an hour earlier every Wednesday starting tomorrow to allow elderly customers to shop.

Stores will be opened exclusively for customers over the age of 65 from 7am – 8am. A valid ID should be presented on entrance to the store.

Pick n Pay’s retail executive: marketing, John Bradshaw, said: “A special shopping hour for pensioners was a great suggestion by our online community and we very quickly worked with our stores to make this a reality.

“All our actions are focused on supporting the well-being of our customers. We know that the coronavirus is more of a threat to older people, and it is thus especially important that our older customers limit the number of times they are in busy spaces as much as possible. This dedicated shopping hour for our elderly customers will give them exclusive use of the store.”
