A Tesco store has put up notices asking shoppers not to wear pyjamas or go barefoot. It seems the store in Cardiff has more than its fair share of customers who like to do their shopping in their night clothes. A spokesman for Tesco has said that although they do not have a strict dress code they do not want people shopping in their nightwear in case it offends other customers. The signs read as follows "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)." Some of the customers, however, have described the ban as ridiculous and one lady has claimed she has shopped at the store in her pyjamas regularly before being turned away a week ago. She has claimed that the store will lose custom as people will choose to shop elsewhere. I’m not really sure I agree. Are people really too busy to bother getting dressed before they go to the supermarket?
