We are asking our customers to show ‘care, compassion and respect’ to our colleagues as they work around the clock to serve their communities.
We are hoping communities will come together and support our front-line colleagues who are going above and beyond to replenish stock levels and keep stores and homes open.
Chief Executive Debbie Robinson said: “Our colleagues are doing everything they can to ensure our community stores have enough food and goods for everyone.
“We want to ask everyone who visits us to be kind and treat each other with care, compassion and respect.
“If you’re able to say thank you to our colleagues when you see them, we are sure they would really appreciate the support at this time. Please be kind and respectful to everyone around you.
“I also want to send a big thank you to all of our colleagues working in our stores and homes. You are doing an amazing job helping to feed the nation and I cannot thank you enough for going above and beyond for our communities. Be safe and thank you.”
