Pick n Pay launches special pensioner shopping hour

Pick n Pay will open all its supermarkets and hypermarkets an hour earlier on Wednesday to allow elderly customers to shop for their groceries and other essentials.


The retail giant’s John Bradshaw says the special shopping hour is an initiative to support the well-being of elderly people.

“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.”

The initiative will start on Wednesday and will see stores open between 7 and 8am for customers over the age of 65.

A valid ID will be required to enter the store during this time.
