More ideas considered to decongest supermarkets


New measures are being examined to further reduce crowding at open-air markets and supermarkets, Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis said on Saturday.

He told Open TV that "at the moment open-air markets and supermarket are operating in a satisfactory fashion."

He added that "in Denmark… they have made supermarket aisles one-way, so that customers do not run into one another, and this is something we are examining. We are seeking new ideas but we are pleased because our market is operating well. I was impressed that people at the supermarkets I visited were keeping their distances," said the minister.
