Average life expectancy in Thailand seems to be 75.30 years, so 57 would be nearly at death's gates then. 

 

All depends if you thai people , or farlang . Kap..

Pretty clear it is referring to Thai people and not foreigners.

I can only presume (hope) this means between 6am-8am only elderly people allowed, but they are still allowed during normal hours as well.

Is 57 considered elderly?

Not for a Thai girlfriend.

Am I going to need my passport to shop at Makro now or will my MRT "Elder" card prove my age?

 

Your Pink Card 💳 should work fine! 😊

I totally agree with you 100%

An unusual gesture indeed from a large Thai Company - well done.

If only others were so considerate in these surreal times.

I believe Makro was the first to require masks be worn too.

I don't think I read anything in the OP that said you're not allowed in beyond those times.

 

Or do you mean they should set those times to a time period which is more inconvenient to the majority of their customers, but suits you better?

Trouble is you cannot buy beer or spirits during those hours so I’ll have to go between 11 and 2 😫

I think its a good move to keep the elderly away from any potentially infected people, as we all know the elderly are at a high risk of contracting it.

 

The smartest Thai thing I have heard yet, well done Makro, see you at 8.05am 🙏

Don't think will be busy before 8

I'm not so sure about that. From the SiamMakro.co.th website Google translated:

 

March 31, 2020,   
Makro throughout Thailand focuses on customers who spend their time on buying, reducing risks, arrange 2 hours special, 6.00-8.00 hrs. With a new opening and closing time 8:00 am - 8:00 pm, D Day, 1 April

 

Siam Makro Public Company Limited side by side with Thai people fighting the disaster Covid-19 Open special hours 06.00- 08.00 hrs. For the elderly, the disabled, the business operators to shift the time to reduce the density in the branch With announcements for new opening times from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm for everyone across the country from April 1 onwards.

That would work better for me, advanced booking 👍

Be interesting to see if a Thai driving licence will be enough to admit foreigners?

 

And if business operators are in early too it may well be very busy, especially at checkouts
