Is this the insidious, creeping hand of Big Brother Corporation?
Notices have been put up in the chain's supermarket in St Mellons in Cardiff saying: "Footwear must be worn at all times and no nightwear is permitted."
A spokesman said Tesco did not have a strict dress code but it does not want people shopping in their nightwear in case it offends other customers.Elaine Carmody, 24, a full-time mother of two young boys, described the ban as "ridiculous" and "pathetic".
She said she had regularly gone shopping at the store in her pyjamas until about a week ago when she was turned away when she went to buy cigarettes.
What is pathetic is the complete lack of dignity and decorum when going out in public. I mean- how hard is it to put on a proper pair of pants, even jeans, when buying cigarettes in front of your impressionable kids? Lazy in the body and lazy in the mind.
