Supermarkets like Asda, Sainsbury’s and Iceland have scrapped priority hours. 

The hours were introduced for vulnerable people to shop.

It also helped key workers to buy their essentials.

Now, Sainsbury’s has confirmed it no longer has exclusive opening times for specific groups such as the elderly or key workers – so customers can shop whenever they like.

However the groups will continue to get priority if there are queues to get in.

Asda has also scrapped its priority hours for vulnerable and key worker groups.

Iceland has now said that though the hours are still available if you need them in some stores, they’re no longer necessary.

“We haven’t cancelled our priority hours for elderly people; these are still offered from 8am-9am in all The Food Warehouse stores, and at the discretion of our Iceland store managers where sufficient local demand exists,” the statement read.
