Lidl has today (Monday) announced plans to introduce priority shopping for the elderly for two hours each and every morning.
The priority shopping will run from 9am until 11am, starting from Tuesday, March 17.
It will run until further notice.
Lidl operate stores in Armagh, Craigavon, Lurgan and Newry.
A Lidl NI spokesperson said: “We’ve been listening to your feedback and we will be implementing priority shopping hours for the elderly across all 39 Lidl stores in Northern Ireland until further notice.
“We ask that the public respect this time period to allow more vulnerable customers to pick up the food and supplies they need.
“Starting March 17, the mornings will run from 9am – 11am every day and will include prioritised queuing and additional assistance for our older customers.
“We may not be able to actively monitor this at all times as our store teams are required on checkouts and restocking shelves, so we kindly ask that customers respect this measure and plan their shopping trips around this timeframe.”
