Starting December 1, the following applies: fewer people are allowed into branches. Since many people could be in front of the branch, some dealers are now even expanding the requirement for masks to the parking lot – they are taking advantage of their home rights. Because at the same time, the state government announced: Mask requirements and minimum distances will be more strictly controlled.
The new decisions are pure numerical chaos!
The reason is, the changes must take effect from an 800 square meter shophouse. Organic stores, hardware stores, department stores and the like should use calculators. Nothing has changed for the smaller bakery, kiosk, tobacco shop or stationery shop with a maximum area of 800 square meters.
If the shop size is more than 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, an upper limit of 20 square meters per customer applies.
For Aldi, Lidl, Rewe, Edeka, Ikea, Galeria Karstadt Kaufhof, Obi, Hagebau and Co. this means: you have to Stricter acceptance controls.
At Aldi, Lidl or Rewe City branches covering an area of 1,000 square meters, the following conditions apply: 80 customers are allowed to enter the branch covering an area of 800 square meters, the remaining 200 square meters can only be used by ten customers. So it’s actually 90 customers. Less than the ten employees who used to work there, “only” 80 customers were allowed to shop at the 1,000 square meter branch.
For shopping centers, according to the resolution, the total sales area of each must be used.
