Lidl Northern Ireland Introduce Priority Measures for Frontline Healthcare Workers

Starting April 2nd, Lidl Northern Ireland will introduce new measures to support frontline healthcare workers in stores across Northern Ireland. Healthcare workers will be offered priority queuing at store entrances as well as at the checkouts throughout operating hours, every day.

The new measures are in addition to Lidl’s dedicated shopping hours for older and more vulnerable customers, which currently run from 9am to 11am every day.

‘The food retail sector has been deemed an essential service by the Government and at Lidl we take our responsibility to support the communities we operate in extremely seriously,’ said Conor Boyle, Regional Director, Lidl Northern Ireland, ‘Having been one of the first retailers to announce dedicated shopping mornings for older customers, we saw a huge outpouring of support from the public who have shown great respect for our more vulnerable customers. We hope that they can also demonstrate the same for our frontline healthcare workers who are working tirelessly to care for our nation in these challenging times. Offering priority to these inspirational workers is the least we can do to support those who are going above and beyond to serve our communities across the country.’

Those wishing to avail of these new measures will be asked to produce valid identification from their workplace, and in doing so will be given priority access during regular store opening hours. All of the above measures will be available in the 39 Lidl stores across Northern Ireland until further notice.
