The “Pioneer Generation”, Singaporeans born on or before 1949, will be stripped of their priority queue privileges when buying groceries at NTUC FairPrice supermarkets from tomorrow onwards (1 Jan).

The priority queues, introduced in October 2014, gave PG members priority at selected checkout lanes.

FairPrice explained that it was removing the special queues since the scheme had “fulfilled its objective” of encouraging customers to “honour PG members by allowing pioneers to move ahead in the queue”.

Priority queue aside, the PG discount scheme could come to an end after 30 June 2019.

The discount scheme was scheduled to end around the same time as the priority queue initiative, but has been extended for 6 months – the 4th time which the scheme has been extended.

Under the scheme, PG members get a three per cent discount off groceries bought at FairPrice supermarkets on Mondays and Thursdays.
