Morrisons has received outstanding praise from teary eyed shoppers for their "discreet" sign.
The sign offers customers at Morrisons a helping hand, when it comes to something most are "shy" about.
Period Poverty affects thousands of people in the UK, so Morrisons is asking customers, who are struggling or are in need of a sanitary product, to not be shy.
A shopper had tweeted the "Ask for Sandy" sign that she came across in the store, which had a huge reaction on Twitter.

Shoppers have eagerly replied, praising the supermarket for its "wonderful" work.
One person tweeted: "Well done Morrison’s. So very kind and thoughtful."

The announcement even brought tears to one shoppers eye's: "Don’t know why this has made me cry but it has! Fantastic, so thoughtful"
Along with other tweets of praise and appreciation, many have pointed out their shock that people in this day and age, are still struggling with Period Poverty.
A tweeter said: "Top marks to Morrisons, such a good thing to do. But isn't it a shame that in our country in 2021 there are people who cannot afford even the basic necessities? So much for levelling up I guess."
A fifth shopper added: "This made me emotional. We are so far behind on this as a society, considering it affects half of the population and is the reason we are all here! Kudos, @Morrisons"
