A Lidl employee urged shoppers to help them out at the till.
To make the checkout process speedier, the supermarket worker gave customers advice about how to pitch in.
Her tips include getting coupons out and preparing bags before all of your items are scanned.
On Facebook, they wrote: "We are a discount store, we have less staff meaning we have to work harder, which means less running costs, so it passes the savings onto you.
"The time it takes for you to get your cheap plastic bags out and sort them out, (they don't sit properly so it takes you longer) you take a while to put the first couple of items in each bag, you ask me to scan and pass you certain items from the belt while the side has lots of items waiting for you to bag.
"It all takes a long time, in this time I could have got the next customer served."
The supermarket worker also pointed out that being efficient with your shop reduces the amount of contact time you have with others during the pandemic.
They wrote: "Also right now… there is a pandemic (I know, you wouldn't have guessed would you).
“The amount of people we come into contact with on a daily basis is a lot.
“The quicker you move (the) less contact… We don't want to catch this thing.”
Any small way to help out key workers during the pandemic is worth doing in our book!
Daily Star Online has contacted Lidl for comment.
While we wait to hear back, you should probably read up on measures the supermarket has put in place to keep Brits safe during the second national lockdown.
A Lidl spokesperson said: "We’ve put a crowd control system in place to help manage social distancing in our stores.
"This includes positioning security guards or designated team members at our store entrances during busy times of the day, to keep track of how many customers enter our stores at one time.
"Rest assured we are continuing to work closely with the government during these challenging times to ensure the correct measures are put in place in our stores, for the safety of both our team members and customers."
The spokesperson added: "To help you plan your next store visit, we’ve put a traffic light system in place so you can find the quietest time to shop.
"Wearing a face covering in our stores is mandatory in Scotland, England and Wales in line with government regulations, to help keep everyone safe.
"If the Perspex screens at our tills do not provide an adequate level of separation between members of staff and our customers, then our staff members will be wearing face coverings as an additional level of protection."
The bakery also encourages shoppers to use the tongs and disposable gloves to pick up baked goods or you can buy pre-bagged items.
