Danish supermarket has genius idea to prevent hand sanitiser stockpiling
One hand sanitiser? No worries. Two hand sanitisers? Now you’re pushing it…
With the Coronavirus situation escalating, bottles of hand sanitiser are now a rare – if not non-existent – sight on supermarket shelves across the UK.
But one supermarket in Denmark has come up with a fiendish plan to prevent stockpilers from buying too many at once.
Twitter user _schuermann shared a photo of a Danish sign at the Hellerup Foodmarket, explaining that the store was selling one bottle of hand sanitiser at 40 krone (£4.94), but pricing two bottles at 1,000 krone (£123.62).
Translated into English, the sign reads:
We have a great responsibility to keep the business running, and we can only do that with everyone’s help and understanding. I can help in the following way:
- We ask all customers to respect the distance between each other and our co-workers.
- Wash hands off at the entrance and use gloves.
- If you are a family, please allow only one person to purchase the items if possible.
There may be times when we limit how many customers we accept in the store at the same time. We will keep you informed about any operating changes on Facebook. Take care and thank you for your understanding.
