Grocery Store Torture

February 16th, 2007 at 09:02 pm

I think I have had it with the grocery store I shopped at tonight

Talked to the manager about my issues regarding it being badly stocked -lots of stuff empty on a Friday night - shelves look like they haven't had new stock in or been faced in a few days - enough carts in the parking lot for 10 normal sized store.

The manager was a good retail manager sort. Politely listened to me. His reasons.

*busy store
*hard to get good staff
*looks great every morning

It isn't walmart but has that superstore concept thing happening. I wasn't impressed with his answers. The store needs a ton of shoppers in it all the time to keep it profitable. Pay more to get good staff. And sorry I shop when it works on my schedule.

Senior pie in the sky managment must do their tours at 8am and not at 8pm.

The cashier was the sweetest thing. Very nice, polite (actually the staff are all super nice) but are all on (for lack of a better expression) island time. My life these days doesn't run on Island time. I don't have 20 minutes to stand in line with only 2 people in front of me.

There is another store that is nearby (another chain) that usually doesn't have these issues. I perceive it as a bit more expensive but my sanity can't take this store I shopped at tonight.

My wallet and whatever sanity I have left are going to take a break from tonights store...

    I would be going to the other store for a while and only use this store for it's loss leader specials only. They are not stocking the items that you need and you don't have the time to keep going back. Write a letter to the senior mangerment and tell them your views too! If you have photos add them too!

    Some stores are like this here when they are about to be taken over by another company! They have that tried look about them.

    May be that is why here our shopping centres like Westfields have this rule you move to new location and refit your store very five years or leave. So our shopping centre are made over every five years to look new. Some section is always in refit.
