Covid-19 – Forres area resources

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Forres Local will provide useful news and information to help the public living and working in the IV36 postcode area.

Changed opening times and priorities

During lockdown, supermarkets have restricted opening hours. Designated times are available for elderly, disabled, vulnerable, carers, and NHS workers. There are strict limits on quantities, and stocks are low.

Supermarkets have a large volume of people, markers are in place to allow social distancing. Please don’t handle products unnecessarily, pay by card where possible and be patient with staff, they’re in this too.

Please note that opening times are changing without notice, especially closing times. We are bringing you the latest information available to us. Check with stores if unsure.

  • Co-op (High Street and Kinockomie) – 07:00–20:00
  • Tesco – 08:00–22:00
  • Lidl – 08:00–21:00
