Tesco, Asda, Aldi and Lidl update delivery and shopping rules for customers

Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl have introduced new safety measures for those shopping in stores and online. These are the latest shopping rules customers will have to follow.

This led to long virtual queues and some customers struggled to get a delivery slot.

Initially, Tesco limited Britons to buying a maximum of 80 items in one order.

However, this has now been changed so customers can buy up to 85 products at a time.

Rationing has also been lifted in stores on all items apart from toilet roll, alcohol, pasta and hand sanitisers.


The supermarket chain has limited how many customers can enter a store at one time.


Over the last few weeks, it has been rolling out a system that uses traffic lights to monitor who is entering and leaving a store.

Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi explained: “The protection and safety of our customers and employees is our top priority and this new system is an accurate and effective way to allow us to control customer numbers in stores.

“The system’s trial was well received by our customers and we will be gradually rolling this new social distancing measure out nationwide from this week.”

This will limit how many customers can enter a store at one time and will help ensure social distancing measures.


The retailer has made changes in-store and online to make shopping as easy as possible during the pandemic.

The retailer has launched a range of essential food boxes that can be ordered online.

This week, it introduced a ‘food to order’ service that allows shoppers to buy food packages for special occasions.

These include the Savoury Snacks Platter, the British Cheese Snacking Platter and various picnic platters.


The supermarket chain has been trialling a virtual queue system which could cut back on how long customers need to wait.

With this, shoppers can log in when they arrive at the store and queue remotely by waiting in their cars.

This will reduce the amount of time spent standing and contact with other customers.


The discount supermarket chain has introduced crowd control systems to help customers keep a two metre distance.

The measures include having staff members watch the doors during busy times of the day and floor markings in stores.
