As of December 1, the following applies: fewer people are allowed in the branches. Because many people could be in front of the branches, some dealers are now even extending the mask requirement in the parking lot – they are using the rights of their homes. Because at the same time, state governments are announcing: Mask demand and minimum distances will be tightly controlled.
The new decision is pure chaos of numbers!
Because the changes need to be applied from a store of 800 square meters. Organic shops, construction stores, department stores, etc. should use the calculator. Nothing will change for smaller bakeries, kiosks, tobacco shops or office supplies that are a maximum of 800 square meters.
If the store is over 801 square meters, 80 customers (one customer per 10 square meters) are allowed to shop in the first 800 square meters. From 801 square meters, then the upper limit of 20 square meters per customer is applied.
For Aldi, Liddle, Ri, Edeka, Ikea, Karsthat Kaufhof Gallery, Obi, Hagebau and Ko this means: Stricter admission controls.
At a branch office in Aldi, Lidl or Rewe City, the size of 1,000 square meters is as follows: 80 customers have the right to enter the branch up to 800 square meters, the remaining 200 square meters can be used by only ten customers. So, 90 customers. Minus ten employees who usually work there, “only” 80 customers have the right to shop in the branch of 1000 square meters.
For shopping malls, according to the resolution, the appropriate total sales area should be used.
