No need to ‘panic buy’ at the supermarkets

The Supermarket Association of Trinidad and Tobago (SATT) is today reminding shoppers to follow its’ Public Advisory issued last week of sending only one (1) member to shop per family.

Shoppers are also reminded to adhere to COVID-19 protocols implemented by the supermarkets and comply with the direction of staff.

Additionally, SATT is reassuring customers that there is also no need to resort to panic buying, as stocks are estimated to last at
least six (6) months and that supermarkets would remain open during the period as they are categorised as essential services.

According to Rajiv Diptee, President, SATT:

“Supermarkets have been reporting the continuous need to remind customers to wear their masks properly and that staff have been abused by customers when trying to implement the COVID-19 regulations.

We remind shoppers that supermarket employees are frontline workers who have been doing yeoman service since the beginning of the Pandemic.”
