Amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, British grocers have been dealing with an influx of customers and soaring demand which they’ve never had to deal with before.
As customers continue to flood into supermarkets to stockpile, many supermarkets been under strain. It has led to countless unhappy customers taking to social media to air their grievances – especially in the early days of the pandemic.
Despite this, some customers took to social media not to complain but to thank grocers for their service and for the help of shop floor staff during these uncertain times. These include shoppers trying to find food for their elderly family to NHS members feeling the love in-store.
Here are just a few tweets:
