Mercadona Spain’s largest Supermarket chanin has begun selling non-reusable hygienic face masks in all of its outlets across the nation to help supply the demand of its clients, who have been in need of face masks since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis.

These face masks are sold in packets of 10 units and will be marked at 6 euros per pack as part of its own brand.

Mercadona has joined the likes of its competitors, Carrefour, DIA and Lidl to offer this essential item during the health crisis and begin the commercialization of face masks.

Mercadona recommends that people who are part of the more vulnerable risk group, such as the elderly or those with previous pathologies, do not come to do the shopping.

The Spanish supermarket chain has also established a new timetable which prioritizes opening hours for elderly people, individuals with reduced capacity, pregnant women, medical professionals, security forces, fire fighters or social security workers.
