Do you follow directional arrows on the ground while shopping?

Poll: Following the arrows

There's no denying the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we shop.

Apart from social distancing, plexiglass barriers and the constant use of hand sanitizer, many stores have placed tape arrow markers along the ground to create one-way aisles.

Castanet hit the streets to find out whether locals have been following the arrows, or shopping the way we did pre-pandemic.

"I try to follow them to make everybody else happy," one customer told Castanet. "Periodically I don’t, simply because I don’t see the arrow blending into the ground. Do I get wound up if someone’s going up the wrong way or down the wrong way? No." 

"If that’s what we’re supposed to do, I do it", said another. 

Some shoppers said they do try to follow the guiding arrows for the sake of social distancing, and reported wanting more stores to incorporate marked arrows in their layout.
