Ask shops: don’t go shopping at this time – news

Billa, Merkur and Penny make an urgent appeal to the citizens: the markets are still open, but should not be visited from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Billa, Merkur and Penny “would like to offer risk groups a relaxed food purchase”, says a message from the Rewe Group about the corona virus. The groups therefore make an appeal to the Austrians: the branches are to be kept open from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. With this, Rewe wants “to enable people who belong to the risk groups in the Corona crisis to shop more relaxed”.

One hour protection period

According to the Ministry of Health, the risk groups include people aged 65 and over and people with chronic previous illnesses. Billa, Merkur and Penny want to protect these risk groups as much as possible and therefore asks all customers to do the shopping outside the one-hour window in order to protect especially older people.

Voluntary recommendation

“I would like to appeal to the cohesion and solidarity within Austria. Please give the elderly and particularly vulnerable people in our society the right to go shopping between 8 am and 9 am,” said Marcel Haraszti, CEO of Rewe. The recommendation is voluntary and has no effect on opening hours, the branches are still open as usual.
