Only one Till

I do like to shop in Aldi as it cuts my shopping bill downand what i do buy in there is good quality although i still need to go to Tesco as i cant get everything i need in Aldi, the fact that they have 5 tills and only 1 in use 2 if the Q gets to long really gets up my nose although they are very fast on the tills and the Q go's down quick.

    i have been told not to shop in aldi again

       

    evidently the man on the till said i was rude and had grabbed the till recipt out of his hand, i certainly dont remember feally rude or angrey just in a rush to get my shopping bag on the side rest to pack the 2 packs of tomatoes i thought i had bought...i am diabetic and have fibromyalgia as wella ostio arthitus in my right hip, so taking all the goods and further carrying them over to the window shelf is too painful an option for me...i dont know what speed he wants me to move now...i am either too slow or too quick....he had an insulting and demeaning go at me in front of the other customers in the line...his final words were.... get out of here you are making a fool of yourself....i didnt know whether to take the tomatoes or leave them there because by then i codnt remember whether i had bought them or not so i left them there ....................................................................................................................................................................................................

    he said that i was rude before to him i think he was refering to the previous insident i relayed on this thread and then i couldnt work out if he was talking about a till reciept taken from his hand in that incident....he refused to explain to me what the problem was...he kept saying we dont want you shopping here any more because you are rude...when i asked to speak to the manager he said he was the manager...it may be he has read this thread himself and is very annoyed that some of us dont think that Aldi is particularly brilliant.

    Aldi ****ng Thornbury.

       

    Beware the scammers have arrived in Thornbury under the guise of Aldi Hound dogs seeking out those who dare to shop for longer than 90 mins ,A company called Parking Eye will send you a legal looking letter demanding you pay £40 for your transgretion . A talk with an Aldi manager was to say useless even though i spent over £60.00 THAT DAY!!!! I intend to phone aldi head office to voice my concerns.

    cattle prods might be a useful item for Aldi staff to have in their repertoire of customer control aids.

       

    well yesterday i had 2 items to put into my bag after the checkout guy had given me my change, a bottle of advocat and one of maple syrup...reduced...i also had to check the till reciept and change given...half way through doing this i was asked by the till guy to "get out of the way as i was in the way of the customers's trolly" he was serving next...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................this made me take longer as i was on the last legs of getting myself out of there...i was seconds away from removing myself from the area...i should have said "do you know what: i dont think i want these items anymore as i dont appreciate you manhandling me; by putting your right arm against my body to attempt to move me from the other persons trolly" and then that would have taken longer still....or maybe "they dont supply you wiith cattle prods here?" might have been the best retort .......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

    ps the advocat was great...i had it with sparkling water wizzed up with my aeorolatte wisk i bought in the cookshop that sadly isnt there any longer because of the high rents charged to shop keepers in thornbury...... the maple syrup was very low grade in flavour

    Staff and Waiting times bring down a overall decent Store...

       

    The prices are great and to be honest so is the produce!!!

    The managers and supervisors seem to be really nice but there's one member of staff who's always on the tills who is moody as hell. No Hello and no thank you etc etc!!!

    Tills... Please stop making customers wait for 15 mins who have 1-5 items!!! its seriously ridiculous!!! And stop pushing all our goods up together on the conveyor belts, there's absolutely no point!!!

    Shame cos could be a big asset to Thornbury!!!

    fabo aldiocious

       

    i do respect a person who puts their feet where their mouth is...lol... i mean actions are greater than just words but we do have to mull it around first....
    i remember when Aldi refused to take on the old [previous not aged lol] workers from...what was it before... somerville ?
    so we have had....safeways, morrisons, somervile and now aldi....have i missed any?

    what a great place for a small waitrose...has anyone ever asked waitrose why they either: havnt considered this site, or if they have, why they ddint get it?

    and also how come Tescos main competitors havnt a look in for miles around here?...this could be seen as a retoricle question lol
    also the co-op[in the high st] hasnt got a place for ratings on this part of the site or have i missed it?

    i think your comment deserves 5 stars but it could put Aldi's star rating up

    agreed

       

    I have contacted Aldi and raised concerns over the local public feelings towards the Thornbury branch but they have not responded. I will contact them again and if I do get a reply then I will post it here.
    The store only ever has one till point open and I must agree some of the staff come across as if they are being FORCED to attend work. Crazy!

    I cant believe it is not waitrose...not

       

    I would be hard pressed to call it a supermarket...yes they do stock food of sorts...surrounding the vast pharafinalia of low grade build

    yes the staff are arragent and rude, yes the check outs are insulting to human dignaty and i really am suprised that with all the complaining i do.. they still let me in their premises...

    Aldi put me out of my misery and ban me please...if it wasnt for the great priced lovely cornish butter that is left on the side of the till que because i havnt the time to wait; and the good deals sometimes on garden plants if you are prepared to go through the jumble sale searching for the right one...

    parking? has anyone had a parking ticket from them...i have had 3 but refused to pay so they left me alone...eventually
    trollies and baskets?...they dont really want us to shop there anyway do they...i do a blue peter impression always trying to balance a cabbageon the top of my shopping in my arms...no baskets and huge trollys that you have to pay a pound for

    i dont like the food labeling ...no country of origin on a lot of products...and i cant see the sell by date on a lot of veg.

    if i do see anything in the electronic jumble sale finding further imformation is:
    first off; find a member of staff and then find out they have no further imformation...

    why do i go in at all?...because it has a prime spot ..passed by from the main thornbury car park and the selling pont of Aldi i think is that there maybe something there that someday one might need at the right price. if one can get it before its gone and get to the check out line with dropping it; and then passing out from dehydration before your goods are rudely passed through to drop on the floor the other side....

    so if you hear an old woman by the electical goods shouting at the ceiling beam me up Scottie there is life but not as we know it ...it will be me in Aldi
