Senior Citizen Shopping Hours in Stratford, London
In an effort to combat the rise of the COVID-19 outbreak, retailers across the nation have announced priority shopping hours for the elderly. However, with these hours differing from store to store, we thought it best to compile the reports from each supermarket chain with a store close to Stratford to make it easy for you or a family member to stay informed. So without further ado, here are the senior citizen shopping hours in Stratford, London.
Where: Hancock Road, E3 3DA
When: 9am – 10am Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays
Tesco issued a statement on Twitter that read: “From Thursday 19th March we will be implementing some changes in-store - changes to simplify what we do, create the most helpful shopping experience we can, and support our hard-working colleagues. Together, we can do this. #EveryLittleHelps”
Tesco Express stores are excluded so those shopping in Stratford London will have to travel to the superstore in E3.
Where: Stratford Centre, E15 1XE

Sainsbury’s too is following guidelines and is dedicating opening hours reserved for the elderly and vulnerable. Since Monday 23rd March, they are also offering online delivery slots as priority to elderly and vulnerable customers.

Last but not least, Iceland also took to Twitter on Friday March 21 to say that the first hour of trading at each store across the UK (see their store finder page for specifics) is reserved for the elderly and NHS workers, while the final hour is reserved purely for the latter.Do note, however, that this looks to be exclusive to weekdays only.
If Iceland isn’t your usual choice, bear in mind that frozen food can make a great alternative to your usual fresh produce which can be rationed out for longer, thus minimising your number of shop visits.
