Czech Rep., May 25 (BD) – For the past few weeks, senior citizens over the age of 65 have had dedicated time between 8am and 10am in food stores and drugstores. According to an announcement from Minister of Industry Karel Havlíček (ANO) earlier today, these measures will no longer apply from Tuesday, May 26th.

The dedicated shopping hours for senior citizens were announced in mid-March. The regulations were subsequently amended several times as the government tried to find the most appropriate time for the measure.
