The supermarkets will be taking away their usual non-essential middle aisle products.
Aldi and Lidl have been forced to remove their middle aisle products because they are non-essential goods. Under Level 5 lockdown restrictions, it is banned to sell non-essential products.
The Government have recently been cracking down on non-essential retail and Gardaí have been visiting stores across the country.
The supermarkets have also been criticised by Isme, which represents small traders, because they are taking business away from smaller Irish shops.
Other supermarkets such as Dunnes and Tesco have been sectioning off their non-essential products such as clothes and toys.
