Bad service in Lidl

Lidl Aldershot

Lidl Aldershot

Even by their abysmally bad, piss-poor service, the service in Lidl this evening was bad.

Only one till open, a queue stretching half way down the store.

The man operating the one and only till, doing his best, was asked to open another till. He apologised, dinged his bell. Nothing happened.

A lazy Nepalese security guard who had nothing better to do than hang around chatting to his friends, was asked to get someone. He just stood there, no response. He was asked again, he still stood there, no response.

Eventually a second till was manned. The person manning the till was asked, does the security guard understand English? The answer was yes.

There needs to be an investigation into this branch of Lidl, the service is always bad, this evening exceptionally bad. The pig-ignorant Nepalese security guard should be fired.

A secondary question that needs to be asked, does Lidl only employ cheap immigrant labour, why are no local people employed?

The poor service, and especially attitude of Nepalese security guard, is not acceptable, and shows the contempt Lidl has for its customers.

Or is it thought, this is Aldershot, bad service is acceptable?

    Some months ago, there was an English guy on the tills, only saw him once.

    Everyone asked him the same question: Was he employed by mistake?

    Not unusual for Lidl. It’s the price you pay for cheap food.

    Lidl does not have cheap food. It is quality, the problem is the service.

    But I agree, we have a problem in general of cheap food. There is no such thing as cheap food, we simply externalise the costs. As we saw with the horsemeat scandal, as as we are seeing with chickens supplied to Nandos, M&S and Tesco.

    Bad service in Aldershot is not restricted to Lidll. Also bad service in M&S and 99p Stores. (another store that employs cheap immigrant labour).

    Bad service in Aldershot seems to go with the territory.

    The local council has done its best over the years to trash Aldershot, and the chain retailers are following their lead.

    Those who suffer are those who shop there and the handful of remaining indie retailers who are struggling against the odds to survive.

    Just Shop, a lovely Lithuanian food shop has recently closed. The type of quality indie business that Aldershot needs and can ill afford to lose. Driven out of businesses by a greedy Nepalese landlord charging unrealistic rent.

    Having wasted £1 million repaving Queensmead in Farnborough, £4.5 million of public money is about to be wasted in Aldershot.

    There has been past complaints re the ignorant Nepalese security guard.

    Lidl Farnham does not have bad service, why does Aldershot?

    Something going very wrong with the Aldershot store.

    Time Lidl fired the Aldershot management and sent in a hit squad to sort out what is going wrong. Or do Lidl not care the bad name they are acquiring through their Aldershot store?

    It is unfortunate a vile local troll has misconstrued what has been written and seized the opportunity to stir up racial hatred.

    A sick individual who gets his kicks from abusing people.
