Potters Bar Sainsbury’s has backed a retirement housing property’s campaign to help older shoppers.

The supermarket chain has thrown its support behind Anchor’s Felix Neubergh House’s ‘Standing Up 4 Sitting Down’ (su4sd) campaign.

The scheme is calling for retailers to maintain the amount of seating available in-store so that older and disabled people, pregnant women or anyone who needs to can rest mid-shop.

Shoppers visiting Sainsbury’s in Darkes Lane, which will be displaying the su4sd sticker, are being encouraged to use the seating by the tills.

Clare Muscutt, head of customer experience at Sainsbury’s, said: “We work hard to make our supermarkets an inclusive and welcoming environment for customers.

“We provide chairs at the back of our checkouts for anyone that would find them useful, as well as offering assistance at all times to customers who may need additional help shopping in store with us.

“We fully support the Standing Up 4 Sitting Down campaign and hope customers will make use of this seating when they visit our supermarkets.”
