I am not sure what difference it makes which shop you use? Wherever I shop I will get in my car, drive to the shop, get out of my car, do the shopping, get back in the car and return home. I cannot see any reason why I am a threat to anybody else or they to me when I am in my car. I have not seen any suggestion that the car itself will spread the virus as I drive on the road. The only high risk time, both from others to me and from me to others, is when I am outside my car and especially inside the shop. That will be equally true whichever shop I use. It is possibly easier to keep a reasonable distance in a shop like Lidl, with its wide aisles, than in small local supermarkets, which are normally quite cramped. A friend shopped at Lidl in Platanias a few days ago and they had a security guard on the door insisting that everybody used a trolley since that tends to force people to stay apart. He had tokens to give to anybody who didn't have a coin to release the trolley and he would not allow anybody in without one.
PS The cynic in me slightly suspects that the supermarket knows that people tend to buy more if they have a trolley than a basket so they may not be totally altruistic?
