Supervalu in Clonakilty respond to criticism to family shopping hours policy

Supervalu in Clonakilty have responded to cervical smear test campaigner Stephen Teap, who Tweeted his frustration at the shopping times policy employed for families at their store.

In the past hour Stephen tweeted that he and his boys were refused entry to Scally's Supervalu in Clonakilty as only one child is allowed entry at a time with an adult due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.

Stephen says he was expected to leave his 7 and 5 year old children outside unattended which he was unwilling to do.

In response to his tweet Supervalu say they have dedicated shopping times for families from 10-11AM each morning and again in the evenings. 
They say this gives people with children space to shop comfortably and allows for social distancing. 

They added that at busy times they are required to keep numbers at a minimum to allow for distancing.
