Tesco Allots Dedicated Shopping Hours For Elderly

Tesco Ireland has announced that it is to introduce dedicated shopping hours for the elderly and family carers across 151 stores in the country.

People over the age of 65 and daily carers will have dedicated access to all Tesco stores up to 9:00 hrs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, starting 18 March.

'The Right Thing To Do'

Commenting on the move, chief executive of Tesco Ireland, Kari Daniels, said, “We recognise that people over 65 and family carers who are looking after vulnerable family members at home, have specific needs during this time.

“In liaison with the HSE and following discussions with Age Action Ireland and Family Carers Ireland, together we agreed that this is the right thing to do, at this time.”

Family Carers Ireland and Age Action Ireland welcomed the initiative by Tesco Ireland.
