Grocery Store In Scotland Introduces ‘Relaxed’ Checkout Lane – The Good News [VIDEO]
The idea was developed along with Alzheimer Scotland.
A Tesco supermarket in Forres, Scotland has trained their employees for their new "relaxed" checkout lane, which is aimed at special needs customers. It's aimed more at elderly customers, especially those who might be in the throws of dementia. But anybody can use it - people with anxiety, autism, or even just a mom with a bunch of kids who wants to take it slow.
"We welcome this new pilot scheme which will help people with dementia to feel confident in continuing to shop independently in their local community for longer," Wendy Menzies of Alzheimer Scotland told the BBC.
Can't tell you how much I love this. I feel bad when I can feel myself getting antsy behind an older person in the checkout lane; I try to remind myself that that will be me someday. Nothing wrong with taking your time!
