Welsh Supermarket Bans Shopping In Pajamas

“Shoppers in pyjamas and bare feet are no longer welcome at a supermarket in Wales where customer complaints have prompted the introduction of a strict dress code.
Signs announcing the no-PJs rule now grace the entrance to the sprawling Tesco’s outlet in St Mellons, a suburb of the Welsh capital Cardiff, that is open most nights until 10:00 p.m.
‘To avoid causing offence or embarrassment to others, we ask that our customers are appropriately dressed when visiting our store (footwear must be worn at all times and no nightwear is permitted),’ they read.”
The only person who should ever see you in your pajamas should be your spouse or significant other, the grocery store did the right thing in instituting a dress code.

I have never seen anyone wearing pajamas at a supermarket, but many slobs wear sweatpants and sandals when shopping at Food Lion.
Grocery store managers should ban customers from wearing pajamas and sweatpants, it’s bad for business. When I’m shopping at a supermarket and I see a lady wearing grungy sweatpants and a ratty T-shirt it kills my appetite and I end up buying less groceries.
If I witnessed a blue-haired old lady in her sleepwear, I would immediately walk out of the supermarket.
People, please show consideration for others and leave your sweatpants and pajamas at home! Friends don’t let friends go shopping wearing pajamas!
