First time we've gone to anywhere like that in one quite some time and it was a bizarre experience. First policy was they require you to sanitize your hands prior to entering. Not wanting to douse our fingers in toxic chemicals that look like they could strip paint off concrete we said we were allergic and pulled out a pre-prepared bottle of our own non-chemical shit to placate the sanitizing station Nazi. We were prepared for that one, although if they had suggested muzzling up we would have refused that and sodded off. But we weren't prepared for the second policy which is that they require each individual to take a trolley, even if you don't need one. Not per couple or family, every single individual who enters the place has to have a trolley. When I asked them why they said so they can "keep track of who is in here". Then, even though the crystal shop entrance is a mere 5 yards from the main entrance, they asked us to cart our empty trollies around a one way system that takes you right through the garden centre, outside and then back inside, finally arriving at the crystal shop about 10 minutes later where you then have to wait outside due to their "one in, one out" policy. An utterly bizarre experience which we won't be repeating. You know things are fucked for these small and medium sized businesses when consumers are going to be driven into the online arms of a cunt like Jeff Bezos just to maintain their sanity. Just avoid such places as many are until the government sees sense and/or admits incompetence. They're panicking already with the data rolling in from the high streets and it won't be long before retail areas are gutted and local councils go bankrupt with business revenue loss/car parking revenue loss etc. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/07/10/mandatory-face-masks-will-help-britain-go-back-work-boris-johnson/ Edited July 11, 2020 by serpentine Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
