COVID-19

Please find below our updates relating to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

We all need to work together to get through this. Please spread the word.

Social Distancing Guidelines

To comply with the latest social distancing guidelines issued by the IOM Government and to help keep our customers and our colleagues safe we will only allow a limited number of customers at a time to enter this store and we are operating a 1-in 1-out policy. We will only be allowing 1 person per household to enter the building with each shop unless it is impossible for this to take place.

Please also respect our colleagues and other customers by keeping 2 metres away from each other as far as possible.

We are taking these measures to try and ensure everyone’s safety.

Please support us by adhering to this policy.

Safety Guidelines at Tills

Looking after our customers and colleagues is a priority at Shoprite, ensuring we all have a clean, safe place to shop and work.

We are all working hard to minimise the risk of Coronavirus and ask all customers shopping with us to follow the guidelines below.

This will help us to help you:

  • The IOM Government is advising 'social distancing' of 2 metres. Please respect our colleagues and other customers by keeping to this as far as possible.
  • If possible, pay by card or mobile app to avoid handling cash.
  • Please do not put card, card key fobs or cash in or near your mouth before handing them to our colleagues.
  • We have increased cleaning and hand washing procedures, please be patient while these take place.
  • To increase availability for all, we have introduced purchase limits on products. This way, the products can remain available to our customers, especially the vulnerable on our Island, for longer.

Our colleagues are all trying extremely hard in these difficult circumstances to serve all our customers.

We will not tolerate any abuse to our colleagues as we all try to come to terms with this difficult situation.

Please think before you buy

We have removed restrictions on most items. 

Please shop responsibly and only buy what you need. 

We do not encourage bulk buying and reserve the right to limit  quantities at any time.

Please help us support as many people as we can.
