Makro store has reserved two hours on all days -- from 6am to 8am -- for the elderly and those with special needs due to the current Covid-19 situation. It has also adjusted the opening and closing hours for general customers from 8am to 8pm.
Siriporn Dejsing, deputy chief executive officer, said customers now realised the importance of safe distance so they avoided crowded times and tended to buy in bulk to avoid leaving their homes often.
Makro's decision to reserve special hours for the elderly (60-plus) and those with special needs is aimed at reducing the infection risk for these groups from April 1 until the virus situation is resolved.
