Admittedly I often turn up unshaven in jeans & a creased shirt, however I think the management do have a point here.

"So they're going to lose their custom with people going to other shops to buy stuff and they're allowed in with their pyjamas on."

I wonder if grandad will try to buy his fags in his longjohns?

Clothes are clothes, they are simply pieces of material stitched together to cover bodies, the rest is just colour, fashion and people overcomplicating things to find a problem where there is none. I can't see any reason to differentiate between her wearing her jami's and wearing jeans and a tee shirt, she is still just as covered.

Pure snobbery.

Sometimes the human race should just get a life.

If people are too bone idle to bother to get dressed before popping out for a "packet of fags" they deserve to be turned away.

Shopping in your pyjamas and slippers indicates to all and sundry that you are a lazy slob. We all know that we're turning into a nation of lazy slobs, there's no need to confirm it by being too bone idle to put on some clothes before going out.

Well done Tesco.

I wonder if you were aware of just how hilarious that was before you posted it.

People wandering round the store wearing the same clothes they went to bed in would certainly discourage me from browsing.

The line has to be drawn somewhere & I commend the store management for doing so.

OOOPS.. What happened there?
"Shopping in your pyjamas and slippers indicates to all and sundry that you are a lazy slob."
Never agreed with anything so much in my life.
I must say i am amazed when i see this happening.
I would be so embarassed to be seen shopping in public in my bedware ( especially since i sleep in the buff (O:! ) that i can only assume these people are very thick skinned or just thick. I suspect the later.
What happened to having a bit of pride in your appearance.
Also health and safety would not allow employees to walk around barefoot due to increased risk of slipping or standing on a sharp object.
So this Tesco score could be protecting it self from a compensation claim.

Perhaps this is an added version of 'nightdress' mum's taking their kid's to school.

The next thing, someone will be talking about 'parental control' when kid's do something wrong.

Hopefully with the flap fully buttoned up:)
