Various industries are making guidelines for preventing the spread of the new coronavirus. Among them, industry groups created by retailers such as supermarkets, department stores and drugstores released their own guidelines this month.

The guidelines include measures such as packaging individually in advance in the case of sales methods that customers themselves, such as whole foods and bread, and refrain from sales promotion measures that can lead to congestion.

At a supermarket in Adachi-ku, Tokyo, we set up a platform outside the store for customers to use for bagging after paying at the cash register, and switched to individual packaging at the general vegetable sales floor.

Flyers that had been self-imposed for distribution will be resumed this weekend, but the latest flyer will put a request for wearing a mask on half of the paper and the ingenuity of the store concerning infection prevention. The products listed are not emphasized in the price of the product, and it is to keep it to the introduction of the product range.

While we have taken various measures, we feel that sales have decreased after the total vegetables were individually packaged, making it difficult for the store to convey the delicious ness of freshly made food.

Tomoya Akatsu, head of Benny Super, said, “It’s very hard not to make use of past experiences such as how to sell, but we have to think about new ways of doing things because we have to keep up with the new coronavirus for a long time.”

The 71-year-old said, “I used to go buy cheap stuff, but now I try to buy only what I need. Sales will be tough, but I think supermarkets are working hard.”
