today I was at Tesco Walton right before closing-time.

A lose dog ran in my direction, right before I got to the shop.

A bin had been turn-over by the dog, which ran away it seemed.

Also, you were sold out of you own-brand cola.

It said 'tempoarely out of stock', or something, on the lable-list.

How can this be the case with a cola?

I've worked almost a life-time in retail in Norway, and own-brand cola was never sold out, the way I remember it, from Norway.

It's just water and sugar mostly.

How can you be sold out?

Have you found horse-meat in it?

Three Tesco-staff were standing in the soda-aile.

In a group.

It's almost like one think something is wrong.

Also, the check-out staff don't use dividers in the tills, so they put my stuff with the stuff belonging to the customer before me.

Why don't you use dividers in the tills?

I've now also seen that you have two types of baskets, also at the Tesco Superstore in Liverpool One.

I think this system with to types of baskets of the same size that doesn't stock, must be like a nightmare, for the staff and the customers.

Is this to make people use trollies and shop more?

I instead bought two bottles of Coca Cola for £2.

Since you had a campaign.

Have Coca Cola paid you to stop selling your own-brand cola while this campaign is on-going?

If I'm allowed to ask these questions.

today at was at Tesco Walton again.

I took a photograph of the baskets, so that you can see what I mean.

You have two types of baskets, which are the same size, but don't stock well, at the check-out.

So this makes custommers stressed, (I dear to claim).

And the cashiers then can 'screw' the custommers and give them to little change back, and things like that.

Since the custommers are stressed.

Or like happened today, a male cashier in his twenties started to rub or pet my Frijj milkshake, (which I bought as a kind of dessert).

I think you should train your staff to act conventional, at least at work.

I was a bit discusted by this rubbing/peting.

I've worked as a cashier at a big hyper-market named OBS Triaden, (Coop), and now that there is no reason to rub or pet goods in a sensual way, for cashiers.

This was something 'new age', I think.

Please be conventinonal, as some people, (like me), like it better when things are normal.

That must have been som wicka or something, I suspect.

And the baskets made me stressed, (since it was an untidy stack that I had to put the basket in), and I therefore became an easy victim for this wicka-guy, or what he was.

Just to try to help you be more aware of what's going on in your shops.

Hi again,

if you look at the earlier e-mails, your representative writes this:

> I have also spoken to Colin with regards to the baskets, and while some of
> the baskets were inherited with the store

But I was at the shop again today, since Sainsbury's were sold out.

And I spotted that you really have two different types of _Tesco_-baskets.

So why do you write 'inherited with the store'?

It's absolute bullsh*t.

You just make up the sh*t you write, and don't really investigate.

I'm an earlier Rimi, (Ahold), shop-manager, and don't like being bullsh*ted like this.

I understand Tesco is a big retailer, but Ahold is also a big retailer.

I also know a bit about food-shops, and I don't like being treated like sh*t, like this Tesco custommer-support is doing.

Shame on you, Tesco!

Hi again,

and I used to have a lot of 'strange' shop-manager collegues, when I worked as a shop manager in Norway.

So I don't really like to speak with shop managers.

I think it's ok to deal with this in writing.

But I think I have got to say what I wanted now.

I have some favorite products at Tesco and some at Sainsbury's.

So I think I'm going to still shop at both shops.

But I haven't found very much to complain about at Sainsbury's Rice Lane yet.

So I haven't sent them any e-mails.

And I'm not going to send you anymore e-mails eighter.

As long as there isn't anything new that happens, in that Tesco-shop, which I think should be complained about.

Thanks you very much for that you have read my e-mails!

Best regards,

Erik Ribsskog

if you don't value my feed-back I have to agree that theres no point in continuing this.

There was a second vocher I didn't get, which your collegue wrote he'd sent to my old adress, around Christmas, last year.

But I guess it wasn't sent.

I don't think you have addressed it all, you haven't event mentioned the stained basket, which should be cleaned with high-preassure-cleaner.

I was at Aldi today, in Liverpool City Center, the baskets were very clean.

But if you don't value feedback from experienced shop managers then I guess it's no point.

Tesco are the biggest retailer in the UK, and the third biggest world-wide, I read on Wikipedia.

That you use Sommerfield-baskets and Tesco-baskets that don't mix, seems strange for the Worlds third biggest retailer, I think.

It's like what an independant corner-shop wouldn't even have done, I think.

I'm just giving you my sincere feed-back here, but you don't seem to interested, to be honest.

I've alse seen in the news that Tesco-shares fell over Christmas.

Maybe you should listen more to your customers, if you want the shares to stop falling.

But I guess it's no use trying to speak to deaf ears, like a Norwegian saying says.

Dear Mr Ribsskog,

Many thanks for your further emails regarding the Tesco County Road Metro store.

I am sorry you feel Elizabeth has not addressed your issues in full in her email of 20th August. Please be assured, Elizabeth has taken all necessary steps to ensure the points you have raised in your emails have been passed to Colin Richardson, the Manager at the store. If you would like to discuss any of the issues, Colin will be happy to meet with you when you are next in the store.

On checking your previous correspondence, I can see my colleague Yvonne Edmonds, sent you a £10 Tesco Moneycard to
Flat 3, 5
Leather Lane, Liverpool.L2 2AE. This was sent on 12th May 2011.

As a company committed to delivering the very best in terms
of customer service it is very disappointing when any of our customers are
unhappy with us and I do hope you will accept my apologies for any
inconvenience or upset that these matters may have caused.

Unfortunately, there is nothing more we can add to what has already been said, and I do not feel that continuing this correspondence will bring any further benefit to either of us. Therefore we will not be entering into any further contact with regards to these issues.

Many thanks once again for contacting the Chief Executive's Office.

Kind regards,

I'm not happy with your reply about the bike-boys.

Because the security-guard didn't even try to get the bike boys to move,
even if he was standing just a couple of meters away from the
enterance-door, which the bike-boys blocked.

It was like he didn't care, I think.

Also, like I wrote in my earlier e-mail I think it's very unpractical,
(bordering idiocracy), to have two types of baskets, which don't mix.

This is so dum, I think, that I want to escalate this please.

These baskets doesn't cost much.

And you haven't replied about the dirt and grease in the baskets eighter.

Rotten fruit etc., have been laying in the baskets, and made a kind of oil,
that is tacky and sticky at the bottom of many of the baskets.

This is unhygenic, I think.

Please escalate to your line-manager.

Poundworld <>


it says in the job-description:

'With over 35 stores nationwide, our client is one of the fastest evolving multi-priced retailers in the UK'.

But you mention Poundworld, in your e-mail.

So I think this must be a mix-up.

Or has suddently Poundworld become a multi-priced retailer?

I also think that Poundworld must have more than 35 shops, because I've seen several in  only Liverpool and Sunderland, (where I've also lived, here in the UK).

Also, I was wondering if you work this late, (as 3.42 AM when the e-mail was sent), or do you send these e-mails from abroad?

(If I'm allowed to ask about that).

I'm just back from this shop again now.

A woman in her 40's was crying, while she was walking down the aile with the Coca Cola-campaign in.

An 'idiot' was driving an electric pallet in the liquer-aile, with around a meter of plastic foil, as a kind of tail, after the pallet.

While he said 'sorry mate'.

Is that American, by the way?

In the superstore I worked in in Norway, we propably said 'sorry', but not 'mate', as far as I can remember, to the customers.

A man, that looked like my uncle Martin, was standing in the liquer-aile, with a cigarette-machine.

When I looked for the chicken-nuggets which are in the same aile as the liquer.

And an Asda-woman walked in front of me, just before I went to the self-service tills.

Possibly as if to provoce me.

At least I've complained about this, a couple of times now, that the Asda-staff are unaware,  when they stand in the gateway, to this department.

When I walked in to the shop two Asda-women were standing at the side of the gateway.

But when I went to pay, for the goods in my basket, then one Asda-woman had been switched with the security-guard, it seems.

I think staff that stands in this area, should be aware of the customers.

I don't like being provoced, in the shops.

When I first tried the self-service tills, at Sainsbury's in Kensington, in London, in 2005, they had no staff standing in the midle of the passage, to the self-service tills, like at this Asda.

So this disapoints me.

Just as an update on my complaint.

like I wrote in my last e-mail, I was wondering what Asda's policy was, regarding how staff should stand, in connection with the self-service tills.

Because then I guess I could have complained right there and then.

But I guess you don't have a policy.

Perhaps you should rebuild the self-service check-out-department, in this store, so that it has more than one enterance, I was wondering.

Just an idea.

Thank for the e-mail.

Hi Erik

Thanks for contacting me about the service you've received at our Walton store.

I'm sorry when you've gone to pay for your shopping you've been met by a wall of colleagues at the self service checkout. I can appreciate how frustrating this must've been.

We work hard to make sure all our colleagues are giving the best service possible. I've contacted Carl Davies, the General Store Manager, at Walton. I've asked Carl to look into this. I trust he'll take the appropriate action.

We want all our customers to have a pleasant experience when they come into the store. If on your next visit you're still unhappy, please feel free to contact the Customer Service Team on 0800 952 0101 where we'll be happy to help.

----Your Original Comments Were----


I write to you, since I can't find Asda's general enquiry e-mail address, on your website.

I'm just back from Asda Walton now, after doing some shopping there.

I have to say that the staff there shocks me.

When I went to pay, for the goods, in my basket, at the self-service check-outs.

I was met, by a 'wall' of people.

Three women in their early twenties, and an older man.

All slim.

One of the women had an Amy Winehouse hairdo, (which was coloured in quite dark red).

And one was a blonde.

The third one could have been a brunette.

And the man was quite slim and low.

All these four were Asda-staff.

And they blocked the passage to the self-service check-outs, as if to provoce me, I think.

I could notice that the blonde Asda-woman noticed me when I walked from the newspaper-department, and towards the self service check-outs.

The four staff didn't move, when I approached them.

They blocked my way, and didn't move.

I took one step to the side, as if to use the self-service check out with a transport-band on it.

(Which I haven't used earlier.

And I would have been on dispay there, for the four staff, if I used it.

So I didn't really want to use this machine).

Then the earlier mentioned Asda-man, moved away, toward the staffed tills.

And then I could just sneak past the Amy Winehouse-hairdo Asda-woman, who seemed to be unaware of me wanting to pass her, it seemed to me.

(Even if it seems odd to me, that people can be this un-aware.

So I guess she acted, possibly).

Then I went to scan the goods in my basket, in the self-service check-out.

This shop, has a security-guard, seated, by the enterance-door.

So why do you have four staff, obstructing the custommers, like this?

This seems very odd, to me.

Do you have some problem with mafia, nazi's or 'wicka-stuff' in your shop.

What on earth is going on?

I know self-service check-outs have only been around, since 2005.

(At least that's when I first saw them, at a big Sainsbury's shop.

The one with a Starbucks-cafe in.

In Kensington, in London).

But what is really Asda's policy regarding this?

Are your staff meant to stand and obstruct the way, to the self-service tills, in a group, like I witnessed, at Asda Walton, earlier today?

(At around 10 PM, I guess).

Can you please inform me about Asda's policy regaring this?
Best regards,

Erik Ribsskog
