More than 40 senior citizens and people with disabilities lined up outside a central Albury supermarket on Tuesday morning to take advantage of their dedicated shopping hour.
A queue formed outside Woolworths in Myer Centrepoint before the 7am opening, with two staff members then viewing concession cards as customers went in through a single entry point at first.
The staff members on the door regularly announced which aisle contained toilet paper as people entered.
The line moved efficiently but there seemed no sense of impatience or worry among shoppers.
IN OTHER NEWS:
One shopper said he had not been able to buy toilet paper for a week, even though he lived nearby and had previously visited the supermarket soon after 7am.
Another Albury resident, who bought toilet paper and rice, said there had been no panic buying and she liked the supermarket initiative.
"It got me up early," she said with a smile.
