It's the panic you know.
The panic brought us food shortages iirc.

Now you've told people that, they'll all go ten minutes before they shut.

I noticed the queue when I passed about 6pm today.
I am sure the queueing is painless but I won't queue like.

Bet there's many queuing for stuff they don't really need.

The thing is Aldi is open until 10pm so there's no big hurry especially when people are not working so they could wait.
I don't know what the queueing is like but surely it can't be that bad.

No, it's not too bad.
The queue I saw had about 8 people lining up at 2m apart.

I doubt that.
We have Sunday opening hours which means the big shops can only open for 6 hours on that day.
The corner shops have no restrictions, at least that's how it appears.
