I used to do the supermarket shop late at night, usually well after 10pm. The store tends to be much quieter then, nobody looked twice at me hanging on to the trolley for dear life, and there are always plenty of shelf stacking staff around to reach for items I couldn't get to normally
I just wish I had the energy to do it now, there's no way I could walk round that place now, even with the trolley for support. At that time of night there's no customer service desk and the few staff they have are usually nowhere to be seen until you get well into the food aisles, bar the security man at the door. They only keep self service tills open, unless you can find the person 'on call' that night and persuade them that you need them to do the scanning.
That also means that the electric scooters are unavailable, I've asked. When I asked why they blamed kids for messing about with them. I not only looked at the security guy at the door, but also asked why, when they need a key to operate. Got me nowhere.
I suppose I should try again. Get in touch with the manager in daytime and let them know when I'm likely to visit. My wife would be pleased if I was able to do the essentials shop on a Friday night. I can drive OK, she would let me have the car for that. Quiet time so park near the door and then zip round in the scooter trolley.
I thought about getting a wheeled shopping bag, but then realised I'd have to lift it into the boot of the car as well - much better with several smaller bags.
