I always asociated woolworths with quality but i am very dissapionted in the shoe i bought in December last year the sole of the left shoe has cracked and its only a couple of months old , i dont have the slip anymore and i bought it cash i mean come now man if you pay so much for a shoe you would exspect it to last , i am very dissapionted because i realy liked the shoe.
Sunday the 19th of April, I purchase some custard tarts, 4 small in a packet with a use by date of 22/04/2015. When I open them, they weren't even cooked on the bottom and they were soft and doughy. They wouldn't come out off the foil cup. Same day, I purchase buttermilk fruit scones pack of 6, use by 21/4/2015, and they were as hard as rocks. These items were not reduced down, so I believed they were baked fresh that day. Very disappointed with the Fresh Food people for spoiling my afternoon tea with my grandchildren. I did not take them back as I only shop once a week as I live 30 mins away to my nearest woolies, but I did ring the Raymond Terrace store to let them know. But they said ok and didn't even ask my name or any questions. I have taken photos of the items, and I know you might think this is a silly complaint, but I'm sure every one else that brought these items threw them out also
I like the woolworths fresh magazines that comes out.The problem is that you cannot buy any of the ingredients from any of the stores. I live in Melbourne and in one day I went to 5 stores and could not buy any items for the meal I wanted to make . So I went to Coles and got everything in one shop. The other issue I have is ,it does not matter what time of the day I go into one of your store all the shelves are empty except for your home brand (select) which you have shelves of. I do not want to buy select every time I want to buy the original brand. I will continue to get your fresh magazine but I will never buy any of the items from a woolworths store again as you never have any of them and it is a waste of my time and petrol going to your stores. I spent in excess of $100.00 a week on groceries and I now spend that at Coles where I can get everything I need.
I visited a Woolworths store straight after work and always carry my back pack with me! It's easier to put all my stuff in it and normally goes to the shop after I get of the train from work ! My bag always make the beepers go off ! Firstly it is very embarrassing when everything beeps when you enter the store !!!! Anyways because I always shop at woollies I sometimes have products in my bag from woollies in this case it was panadols and a packet of cuppa soup What I expected make the beepers go off ! Anyways firstly why would I buy and pay $100 worth of groceries but steel Panadols and soup that's $3 aprox??? And the Panadols in my bag has been opened already with about 6 already out !! Did not drink 6 Panadols while I was in the shop ???!!!! And the soup packet had one sachet left !!! I surely did not drink six Panadol and ate a packet of instant soup while I was in the shop for opprox 15 min!!!! Just to save a buck!!
Anyways so while I was paying for my groceries the beeper kept going off and the employee asked to search my bag !! I did not mind that as I have nothing to hide !!!!!! He could have called his manager over and took me somewhere private to do that !!! Not infront of the whole store !!!! For everyone to witness !!! Which by the way he did not find anything in my bag that was stolen!!!!!! I left the store upset ! Embarrassed and will not be shopping there again ! Even though I love woollies !!!!! I really do expect some sort of apology! As I am not a thieve !!! Even though I was made feeling like a criminal!!!!!! And the whole situation was handled unprofessionally And why was the lady infront of me not searched as she made the beepers go off also !!!! Is it because I'm not Australian????? Would love to hear from someone!! Am also happy to view any sort of cctv camera footage showing that I have done anything wrong to give the employee a reason to embarrass me!!!
I purchased a Vodafone smart 4 mini phone on 15th April 2015 for $29.00 at Woolworths store, Capalaba Park, Qld. Took phone home and opened the box , charged phone which started at 50 percent charge and then over the next 24 hours went down to 10 percent, instead of going up to 100 percent. I took phone back in its box to said store today only to be told I could not have a refund as I had opened the box. How else was I to set the phone up if I couldn't open the box?
The attitude of the staff was the most upsetting aspect of my complaint, very rude, not interested in listening to my complaint at all. I was told Woolworths do not always give refunds or replacements! Different to what Wooworths advertise! I trust sanity will prevail here and either a replacement phone or full refund wil be granted. I have always been a loyal Woolworths customer, but after this debacle I shopped at Coles today.
On 01.04.2015 I bought a Round Toe Block Coura Heel Shoes size I fit on the shop , of which I wanted a sock to fit on unfortunately the sock was not provide then I fit on the shoe without a sock of wich it was my size it was ok without it, little did I know the shoe will going to give me problem wearing it with pantyhose, I bought a shoe rushly then when I am wearing it on Friday the 3 April 2015 the shoe is bigger than than I I thought when I am wearing with a pantyhose, I was very disappointed going to the shop Woolworths in King Williams Town in Eastern Cape, they refused to take or exchange the shoe, I ware that shoe only 2hours straggling I explain to them, but the refused to give me another shoe. My surprise they did not take the shoe for exchange but when I asked to live the shoe because I do not know what im going to do with it they took the shoe. I gave the Manager Maxwell in King Williams Town Branch.
On the 13 April around 19:17 pm I have receive a call from one on your team member. I forgot his name he sound Indian. He said the call was about the outstanding payment that I owe the Store. I have try to explain my purchase was two weeks ago. He said I have been owing the Store R46.00 for six month, when I ask why I was not been notified about the balance. I ask him to check first, I hang the phone. He called again rudely. Demanding R180.00 to be paid urgently.
1.The bottom line its the manner of communication
2.Disturbance of my Leisure time ( CALL AT 19:17PM) DEMANDING PAYMENT
3.RUDENESS OF A CALLER
I will appreciate if my complaint could be considered, as I am not happy about this
My local supermarket at Marden SA has ceased stocking "Continental Dinner Rolls [Soft] 350g Net Qty 6" ; these rolls are in Woolworths packaging but are made by Riviera Bakeries, Adelaide. The manager at Marden and his staff tell me they are now not permitted to stock these rolls [after many, many years] and that if the did, the "Regional Manager would have a fit [my words]. This is said to be a "direction from Sydney". They have had many complaints about the demise of these rolls, which have been deleted. I rang Riviera, who told me they still supplied the rolls to Woolworths Felixstowe store, about 5 minutes up the road from Marden, by car. So now I am forced to shop at Marden then make a special trip to Felixstow to get the rolls! Some customer service, I don't think! I am a senior person and have a WW loyalty card. I sincerely hope the result of this complaint will not see their demise from Felixstowe; if it does, watch out! I am VERY annoyed at the ham fisted way this has been handled and the lack of attention to customer satisfaction.
Was in Croydon Vic store this morning and pointed out to staff member that they had on open display packaged beetroot that was required to be kept refrigerated at all times between 1-4 degrees, along with ones that could be displayed without refrigeration. They looked at product and agreed that it was supposed to be refrigerated but they responded with " I know they usually are refrigerated, but we have to follow our planogram and it says that are to be on display so there is not much we can do about it, we have to follow instructions" I know you might not think its a big deal but with the recent food recalls I thought maybe your response to the welfare of the consumer would be a bit better.
Every week I order 1 box of Kirks sugar free 1.25 lt Lemonade, most times I try to order on a fortnight basis, this incompetence has been going since November last year. When I go to collect my order, there is insufficient bottles or like today 13/04/2015, there was NOTHING, if I drank Coke, I could buy a pallet of the rubbish no problem. How hard is it to get an order right ? I have placed many orders in my employment without any problems, if I was to make as many stuff ups as the crew at Yeppoon, I would be demoted or sacked.
Why is it so difficult ? Give me the job instead, no more incompetence. NO stars today.
I just like to say I never write in and complain about things but this really upset me today. I went into my Bowral Woolworths today and wanted to get my fresh ham but have found the deli has now gone and you are doing pre packaged lunch meat. I very unhappy with this service, I like my meat freshly cut and have the options of having shaved or sliced and asking for how much meat I want. I know you can ask you deli stuff to cut your meat for you but this takes time. The fact that there is more packing is very bad for the environment.It's a service that has realy put me off going to Woolworths and now we have a new Coles across the road from Woolworth it looks like they will be getting a lot more of my business.
On occasion I have tried your own brand Select, but have been mostly disappointed. I have twice bought your Original Wheaten Biscuits, but will not be buying them again. On both occasions when I opened the pack, I found the first 2 or 3 biscuits to be broken in many pieces. And when I tried to butter others, they just broke in pieces. I have tried other items produced under your own name, but have found the quality to be much inferior to the well known established brands, and although your Select brand is cheaper in price, they represent poor value. So I suggest that you need to lift your game.
I am a very loyal customer of Woolworths Supermarket at Lanyon ACT. I have noticed on numerous occasions when I have bought caned or other overseas produce that no used by dates are stamped on or use before a certain date. The latest is Campbell's soup tin. It has a code stamped underneath the can however when yesterday I went to ask if I could speak to the manager (Saturday 11/4) I got four people who all said they didn't know one said that cans last forever and I should open it and taste it to see if it was alright. Finally the manager came who said she too didn't know why it didn't have a used by date that it seemed the code was regularly read by reps from Campbell's on routine inspections. I have had the can maybe 9 months so I am not prepared to take the risk. In future any overseas products that I see no used by date I will not buy and certainly no Campbell's anymore also some Heinz cans have no used by dates. All Australian produce have so much for foreign imports. I have shared this knowledge with my family and friends so they can be aware. I am deeply disappointed as I have always revered your logo for being the fresh food people.
My complaint concerns the self serve checkouts at Morayfield shopping centre in Queensland.I have used my own reusable bags for many years and always fill two to three of these bags at every shopping trip.I always have trouble with these self serve registers.They will accept one bag but not two.I am always instructed to call for assistance.The girl who is watching these registers is usually inundated with customers having the same problems so this means waiting your turn before you can even begin scanning.Then when one bag is filled you attempt to remove the full bag and move the second bag into position the same problem occurs.Either the register informs you "please place the correct item in the area" or once again "call for assistance". This happens every time not occasionally.I have on occasions shopped at Coles and this problem does not occur.I have begun to avoid the self serve if possible but if the other registers have queues of shoppers with fully loaded trolleys I have to use the self serve as due to two herniated discs in my back I am unable to stand for more than a few minutes without severe pain.If Coles can have self serve registers without these hassles (also without a staff member in attendance),why can't Woolworths?
I went to woolies in heidelberg 3 weeks back to pay my account in the morning and I found staff members crying about the treatment they getting from their co ordinator, they feel that they are stupid cause she shouts them in front of the customers and tells them she's been in woolies for a long time. I find that disturbing cause nothing can be done since she's close with the store Mananger, is it fair for other kids to work scared cause management won't take their cries to head. I'm an angry customers cause even a white customer asked if somebody died as they were crying all of them.
I was shopping at a store close to where I am holidaying and was pleased to see that there was a local Woolworths close by at the 19th avenue village on the Gold Coast...the first impression of the store was great! Fresh food departments were fully socked and considering the store was very busy it looked clean and tidy. But with my experience in customer service the last impression is the one that sticks! Saying that, I would like bring your attention to my complaint concerning the service manager and the lack of communication Jodie (supervisor) had, I was standing beside the customer being served and Jodie looked at me and proceeded to finish with her customer, which clearly was a regular at the store, from over hearing there conversation. She then said see you next time, closed the draw, grabbed a piece of plastic rubbish off the counter directly in front of where I was waiting and turn around walking away slowly putting rubbish in the bin and then commenced talking to a male staff member (just saying hello) . I thought she would come back so I waited but clearly her priority wasn't serving. The next day I went to the same store and it was very clear to me once again that she was not in a good frame of mind to be smiling or friendly and in my experience, if you as the customer service supervisor is not approachable or friendly to the customer this gives the company as a whole a bad reputation...maybe she needs a break?
A few months ago I sent you an e-mail about woolworths brand sliced brown bread packaged in plastic that turns sticky and greasy after a few days storage and has to be thrown away. I received your gift card and response which was much appreciated. The problem is that this has occurred again. There has to be something wrong that you have not addressed. The store is Southport Park Qld. I am not complaining about the store. It is a very good store but when you go to make a sandwich for lunch and have to throw the bread away you get annoyed and start to think I had better not buy any more bread from Woolworths.
I have been a customer a Woolworths, Fluschombe Rd, Prospect NSW since it opened approx. 15yrs ago and have a growing dissatisfactions with this store on a number of points. The number of check outs open-often prior to 0900 on a weekday there will be one check out and self serve (3 self serve checkouts) and often one will be out of service. The customer service with personal conversations around the service desk whilst people are waiting in long check out queues. The self stacking leaving multiply boxes in the isle-which is a trip hazard-or boxes/stock trolleys and staff doing the online groceries blocking isle's, so paying customers have to divert to another isle. A car park that floods reducing the available customer parking and spots that remain flooded several days later. Woolworths staff (and there are many) who park in the main car park at the front of the store, limiting spaces for paying customers, worse with inclement weather and just last weekend end just before the Easter long weekend customers doing loops of the car park trying to find a space to do there shopping competing with staff (obvious in their uniforms) taking up valuable parking spaces for customers. Even in the middle of the day when the shop is near empty the car park is nearly full due to staff parking their private cars in prime positions is front of the store.
As you should be aware this is a stand alone store, not located in a shopping complex, there is also a rear car park near the docks that staff can park in but no one does , to allow your customers to park and shop and not divert out of the car park to competitor down the road, as there is also a large 7 block unit complex going up directly next door to this Woolworths, I suggest you address this parking issue before is worsens and your staff go else where. As a side note I have worked with a government department for the last 26yrs and they do not provide parking we need to park offsite and leave our cars to damage and theft, what makes your staff different? that you allow them to take valuable parking spots which should be left for your customers- or is the staff parking more important than customers and profit?
I have shopped at your cooloola cove shop ever since it opened, and now a new manager is there my complaint and four of my lady friends is, lack of stock on the shelves. Lots of silly excuses, not true. This is meats and dry goods, and bread redelivery after 10 30 am. That means if you buy your bread before then,all is yesterdays! We are all going to pool our cars and shop at gympie coles unless this is fixed. Just looks like not much ordering is done. Thanks if any action is taken, but we doubt it.
In a Select Brand of Rogan Josh with Rice I found a piece of cotton measuring 23 cms in length. It was in the meat side of the container and dragged out when I took a spoonful of meat from the compartment. . I have 3 photos of it which I want you to see but can't send them to you as I don't have your e mail address. I have the offending piece of cotton in an envelope in case you want to check it out. As a pensioner I budget my food so I don't want to throw out the others I have bought. What do I do with them?
Today Saturday 4/4/15 I went to Woolworths at Mt Gravatt Brisbane and went to the deli department took a ticket and waited to be served. The lady next to me was served first as she had the previous number then when the staff member finished with her he just walked past me to go and help with the pre-package meat for the fridge until one of the other staff members told him to go back and serve me. Finally he did with his hand in his pocket and his shirt hanging out. I asked him for 250gms of Devon thickly sliced he then proceeded to the pre package section and wanted me to take this. I said I wanted it thickly sliced and there was not 250gms sliced but he tried to give me a 200gm and a 150gm in the first place this did not add up to 250gm and it was not thickly sliced. It was obviously going to be a effort for him to slice some for me.
I went to repeat myself and as he was putting back the pre-package meat he then said in a loud rude voice that I had very bad manners and I then said excuse me what did you just say and again he told me I had bad manners Well this was a shock! The same time a woman(staff member)who was slicing meat put her hand up in right in front of my face as though she was stopping traffic. She said she would get it for me I told her what I wanted and also asked to speak to manager and then she said she was the manager. I then asked her again was she the manager of that department and she finally said no she was the seafood manager. I then asked to speak to the store manager and another staff when off to get the store manager.
Now while I was waiting for the meat and waiting to speak to manager the young man in question with the attitude and rude tongue then proceeded to get the attention of another young staff member and took him into this small nook at side of the deli wall and laugh and talk about me. I witnessed this and as he turned around he was taken back to see me standing there but he just walked off with this big smirk on his face. The manager came and I spoke to him about this young man that seemed to have a lack of respect for customers and how he was very rude. I also pointed out that his work attire was disgusting to be serving customers as his shirt was not neat and he had his hand in his pocket while serving . It seems to me that a number of Woolworth's staff need training in customer service and dress standards while at work. I will not be shopping at Woolworth's again!
I am asking why after a few months of being able to purchase White Wings GF plain and SR flour from the store in Clare SA I have been told that the product has been deleted I cook often with this product and have recommended it to lots of other unfortunate people who are GF free This product is as near as using non GF flours It is hard enough and much more expensive to cook GF without finding a product that is so good that I now have to wait to go to Adelaide and once again search for this product and stock up with it as we are 2 hrs away from the city Could you please give me a reason for not supplying this here I will be very disappointed if you say it is because of small movement Give us GF people a go Some of us do prefer to cook and not buy redi made products Looking forward to hearing from you RP
On the 29th of April 2015 I did an online order for groceries as I was offered free delivery for first time delivery. I phoned the online number and was told two times available early morning or mid morning. I also explained that the address was for friends of mine and was told that they do deliver to that address, I was also told that to place the order on Sunday morning as to do it earlier was impossible, so we placed the order at 8.30am Sunday to be delivered the following Saturday. I recieved a call at 12.00on Wednesday from Mohamad in the online dept saying that this is no longer possible and that my only option was to do click and collect or Monday delivery. As we are holidaying from Saturday to Monday at this residence that was not an option as the food would be too late. After many calls to online dept again speaking with Mohamad I was told did I realise that it was a long weekend no explanation other than he had only been told himself that day and could do nothing about it. I phoned a 1300 complaint line and was told that someone would call back in 24 hours, when that didn't happen I phoned and was told three times that I would get a call back. I phoned 4 times and said I would wait on the line for someone to be available. As my credit card had been charged with the order and no refund came through as promised by Mohamad by today Thursday I eventually spoke to Shaun at online. He said there were no notes on my file order no 12103726 but he promised he had refunded my credit card today, I asked for some compensation for the many phone calls and inconvenience and he said he would forward a 15 dollar voucher. My complaint is that the order should have never been taken if it was not possible and why so many calls to obtain a refund. I of course will never try online shopping with Woolworths again as it is not worth the hassle.
have been shopping at the woolworths narellan store for past few months and the fruit and veg section is a complete joke. always out of stock, rotten fruit left on show and the prices are usually either missing, incorrect or a completely differnt description from whats on show. Have asked to speak with the fruit manager on numerous occasions and has never been there when i have asked, hence the reason to take it further. will no longer be shopping here as its a waste of my time!
I purchased some goods from Mill park (3082) store on 29th March 2015 and kept my I phone on the counter to take out my credit card. Unfortunately I forgot to take my mobile back and I went there approx.two hours time and inquired about it. Then the supervisor checked the camera and informed me that its not clear and he cant see what has actually happened. I am pretty sure that it has been taken by one your staff as the place where I kept it cannot easily seen by a customer. I have lot of important date saved in my phone and desperately need it. Can you please investigate this and let me know what actually happened. I have the receipt with me and I can provide counter person's code no if needed.
Butchers out the front of the store smoking with their butchers coats on. Their coats also full of blood. I have watched them walk back into meat department with the contamination coats on. As a loyal customers to Woolworth I don't want to see this sort of thing especially when I buy my meat from you. It's your store at Brackenridge. 4017.
Woolworths Gateway, Cockburn Central. I went to purchase cigarettes and looked through the pricing on the sealed locker. I decided to purchase two cartons of "JPS 26 Blue" which were advertised at $129 (and change) per carton. on running these through the till the price came to $328.00. Obviously much more than the $259 (and change) as advertised. I pointed this out to the staff member who said the advertised amount was wrong as they had not had the chance to put up the correct price but the till price was correct. On hearing this I advised the staff member that the advertised price should be the amount paid as they were offering the sale of goods under "Invitation to Treat" as generally accepted. I the customer has accepted Woolworths offer to sell. The sales assistant asked the Manager who said the goods were for sale at the till price and not the offered price. The sales assistant then destroyed the ticket on display. I find this behavior very disappointing to say the least.
You have been advertising Easter bunny for 90 cent up and till Easter but they are not available in your stores
I recently purchased 12 dinner setting of Jamie Oliver in your recent promotion I fell rather cheated going to the supermarket seeing them for less than half the price I bought them.
I have been shopping at woolworths for 40 yrs,I have never complained in my life but the service at erina deli is deplorable,today the 28th march at 10 o'clock there were at least 23 customers with 2 people serving,they were talking to each other and it seemed that the customers were the last thing on their mind,after half an hour of waiting for our numbers to be called out, one of them decided to call for assistance this is so unsatisfactory,people don't have the time to do this,one guy that was waiting told another lady that had just taken a number to go and do the rest of her shopping and come back,this is a joke,this is not an isolated case at this deli,this happens quite frequently at this store and I'm considering doing my shopping else where,it's a shame because all other departments and staff r wonderful ,yours sincerely Maxine Horsnell
I have never had such bad service and rude service any where. I went to woolworths yanchep i asked for pack drum classic blue 50g and rizla papers. The woman serving me could not use the till she said she was locked out she then stated to yell at younger girl that used it before her she then asked me again what i wanted i told her again she then said to me she is not an idiot and thats no way to speak to her and kept on arguing with me i told her i did not want a argument with her and i did not know what she was talking about. The date of this 28/3/15 Saturday morning i went to the same shop last Saturday to get the same again they did not have any .i went again on Monday afternoon they did not have any. I went to the same shop and had a trolly full and there was one person serving and there was people lined up a five or six deep and there was four or five woolworths staff talking using there mobile phones just metres away. I have spoken to manager about the service how bad it was and how iga service was far better he said service was important and would look in to it. I don't think any thing has changed only got worse i also told him people would not put up with it and would use there feet and shop some where other woolworths. I never made a on line complaint before but the service was so bad .
I have shopped at your store at manly vale nsw a number of times and to be honest I don't think I have found a more discourteous group of people serving there. Yesterday I was made to feel a complete idiot by the register operator after explaining I wanted to pay partly in cash and card. The young man replied I know that what is this one hundred dollars for and obviously I said that is the cash amount I wanted to pay and the rest from my debit account. His attitude was so demeaning as if I didn't have a brain in my head .i may be sixty but I am not stupid and then as I was leaving the store the alarm went for some unknown reason so I went back in the store and said to the service desk person can I leave the store and the response was a very curt yes why not. As Coles is but a block away I will be shopping there from now after shopping at a Woolworths store for many years.thank you for reading my complaint but perhaps you could tell some of your staff that older people are not stupid people.
FALSE ADVERTISING!! I went to buy some Easter Bunnies for my family and Grandchildren that are advertised on TV for 90 cents each. First I went to Westfield Carousel Woolworths, then Bentley La Plaza Woolworths, and then Woolworths at Armadale. All supermarkets had none although your advert on TV states that you have them every day until Easter. Not Happy! I traveled in excess of 60 kilometres for nothing. We love shopping at Woolworths but this has left a bad taste in my mouth especially when the staff at Woolworths La Plazza were absolutely rude about it.
I was at woolworths Minto lady with short red hair at the smoke counter not serving smokes but scanning groceries side was so rude to me and my elderly father he couldn't hear her she said I haven't got all day well rudeness like that I will not tolerate we will shop at coles from now on this is not the first time.I did speak to people I know in the area they said that is just the way she is.
On the 26th March April, went to make a lay-bye at woolworths vereeniging. The lady who helped me by the name of Phindi/Phindile asked if I had my I'd and said yes. She told me to fill in the form while busy on the system with my application for lay-bye. She then told me to pay R210.00 and when I give her my savings card she said she cannot use that one as she can't process my payment using that card. Its a capitac card. I then told her I don't that that amount in my wallet as it was R180.00. She told me to go and withdraw and when I come back I must know that I am going to que again and said ok its fine. I then asked her to please keep those 4 pairs of shoes as I will be coming back same day to make a payment of lay-bye. When I went back for payment, quewing again, I told the different lady that I was here for lay-bye and had to come back for some reason.
She went to a back room to check for those shoes and she said she can't find them. She asked who was helping me and I said its this lady and she said Phindi or Phindile. She asked Phindi or Phindile where are those shoes. Phindi or Phindile she looked so amazed.....and she just oohhhh I left that plastic theree and maybe somebody took it.. I'm was so disappointed about the service I got as I have asked her so nicely to keep it safe for me. She said to I did not tell her to keep it safe as I will be coming. Was even told to go and check for them at shoes department. This is not the service I expected from a Company like Woolworths. The worst part this she is so serious when servicing a client...very crossed. I just had leave everything as I had to go and fetch my child from after....very very dissapointed...
I have since asked for a letter to confirm my finishing of the credit card balance but till today I have not received any response. Why are we sometimes treated nicely when our support is needed but when we need help ourselves we are ignored. Can someone who really cares about customers please respond to this!
Shopping at Woolworths, Warwick Grove approx. 12.15 on Thursday 26th March. Two checkouts open, one checkout 14 items or less, 3 - 8 items or less. At each of the two "normal" checkouts three to four customers waiting with trolleys filled to overflowing. Approached woman on the 14 items checkout who had no customers about going thro, in no uncertain terms she stated we were not allowed thro her checkout - she was doing nothing! Asked for more checkouts to be opened up, eventually they were but only when congestion was so bad no one could pass by. This is not a one off at this store, no matter what time the shopping is done there is always a lack of checkouts open, and why is this the only store not to have self serve facilities?
I can't see why I was not given two dominos at menai, when my receipt was nearly $39.00. The lady after me said she didn't want hers and the guy still didn't give me one more. A few weeks ago the elderly gentleman also didn't want his and again the girl said no to my request at receiving his. I am very disappointed at their attitude.
November of year 2014 I wrote about the problem I had with Homebrand Liquorice Allsorts. I was asked to send the photo of offending object, and following that send in via prepaid express satchel, all of which I did. I received a phone call from a young lady, of which I failed to get name of, whom after speaking to me told me I would get a voucher in post. Never receive such voucher. I also explained, after receiving another call from a young man, lost his name, who asked me about my tooth of which was cracked on the offending object. I told him I had not been to the dentist through lack of funds, as being a pensioner had to wait to be able to put my name on government dentist list. I have suffered on and , off ever since. What I am amazed at is that not once has anyone got back to me about the said offending object, since having sent it on to you. This to me is very bad customer relationship and I feel very strongly about having no explanation of what it is, how it got into confectionery, and what is going to be done about it. I would really appreciate a feed back on this subject. I feel I have been very patient due to having had Christmas and New Year to contend with, but now them well passed hope that I can get some feedback and a bit of thought to my tooth problem.
Went to Woolworths Bulimba on Monday, Tuesday and today Wednesday to buy JPS Menthol, only to be told each day for 3 days that the Cigarettes would be coming in each day and they had none. I have wasted my energy and time going there on 3 days, to be told rubbish by staff. I asked to speak to a Manager today, and was told by a 12 year old Manager that smokes come in on certain days. NOT GOOD ENOUGH, YOUR STAFF SHOULD BE ABLE TO GIVE THE CORRECT INFORMATION TO CUSTOMERS. I will not be shopping at any more Woolworths supermarkets, again. Time to give someone else a go after 30 years of Woolworths
I've been trying to buy Rubbein Magic products which are Australian made and can't find them anywhere, the are a green product and we should have the choice of buying Australian made products. I am very disappointed by this supermarket as I have found other good products removed from your shelves pick up your act and provide us with our Australian made products
We visted Woolworths in Cowra Saturday to purchase a specific cut of meat. We could not find what we wanted and look for assistance but there was no one in the department. We enquired at the Deli if there was anyone in the meat section and were informed there should be two people they called for assistance to the meat department. After waiting for over five minutes a person called Liam turned up and the first words were I'm on a break. We explained what we wanted and were advised that they don't supply the product anymore and could not order it because we live on the wrong side of the mountain. We found disappointing that we had to wait for assistance and the product not being available because we live on the wrong side of the mountain so we went to Coles who had what we wanted and received better service. It seems that customers are not a propriety for Woolworths.
Requested rain check for Rose Hip Oil, assistant manager was called,his manner was rude and arrogant, made me feel very intimidated. I normally shop at Patterson Lakes, which does not always have advertised specials. I will never put a foot in this store again. I am in my eighties, and do not need to be treated in this manner. This was on Friday 20th March.
I visited the store today 16 March 2015, around 11am to 12pm - Flamingo Vlei Woolworths in Tableview, Cape Town. The flapjacks, yet again on the shelf has already reached its sell by date (dated to be 16/3/2015), Also loads of Hot cross buns on the shelf today, which ALL of them already reached its sell by date. In the past I had issues with the long life milk, marked on the box as expire in several months time only, yet when I opened one of em (part of a 6 pack), it was off/sour, just purchased from the store and its sour. What is happening with the quality of your merchandise? This is alarming considering how you promote yourselves. Totally disappointed in Woolworths. Going there seems not worth it anymore.
I have bought hot cross buns from Woolworths (Morayfield shopping centre) on several occasions in the past and have always found them to be good. I purchased a half dozen traditional buns this morning. I was very disappointed with them. Hardly any fruit in them at all. One bun contained one lonely sultana and no other fruit whatsoever. The most fruit contained in one bun was three sultanas. The body of the buns were also a tad dry and flavorless. Did not appear to have any spices in them. Two of these buns now reside in the kitchen tidy.
There are no customer toilets available in the Cootamundra Woolworths store, there is a toilet there but approx for the last 12 months or more the customer toilet has had a sign displayed "customer toilet out of order " when my son was 3 he was toilet trained and we had frequented the toilets during a shopping trip there, shortly after the toilets became out of order, my son is now 5 and when he needs to go we have to leave our shopping in the trolley and walk to the nearest pub.. it is a bit of a joke for people with children, I could understand if they never had a customer toilet in the first place but to have one and not bother getting it fixed is a joke, when staff were asked when it would be fixed, they couldn't tell me. Not happy
My mother and I bought some bananas - in a pack labelled suitable for children to take to school. Between us we bought 3 x 1 kgs packets. They were green when we bought them and three weeks later they are still green and inedible. We have had to throw them out. I don't have my docket. These were purchased at your store at Marion Shopping Centre in Adelaide. I am really angry. Woolworths should never have sold these bananas in the first place, especially considering how expensive they are at the moment. Fresh food my arse. Next website is Facebook to vent.
I visited your Regency Plaza store on 11/03/2015, and bought Bulla original thickened cream, went to use it when I got home only to find the use by date was 09/03/2015, I threw it out as it would have cost me more in petrol to return it, on the same visit I was overcharged on 2 items, which luckily I noticed when I got to my car, I was also overcharged the week before on 1 item at another Woolworths store, as well as those problems, when I got to the checkout with my considerably amount of groceries, I found that the only checkout that was open was 12 items or less, I didn't have any choice, but had to go through this checkout, trying to put all my items on the tiny space was hard enough, but it wasn't pleasant having disgruntled shoppers behind me thinking it was my fault....please Woolworths, lift your game !!!!!, P.S I think it is illegal to sell products after their "use by date" !!!
Bought yogurt (new range - full cream) last week. Wanting to have one today (04.03.15) however it was fermented already however the "use before date is only 07.03.15.
I am so dissapointed with the experience I am getting from Woolworths Country Road Sandton. I am actually shocked as woolworths takes pride and markets their store as 1 that provides the best service and up to now, I have always believed this, however this has changed.
I called in at Sandton country road stand alone store on Tuesday 24th Feb enquiring about a country road weekender dress style 502712492 size 16. I requested Simon to check where he can get the dress for me since they didn’t have a size 16 in the store. He told me that there are 2 dresses available at Cavendish mall in Cape Town and assured me that he will order the dress for me. He called me after to advise me that he has ordered the dress and it should be in Sandton within a week or so and I then requested him to follow up on it as the dress was on promotion and I wanted to get the dress still on promotion and most importantly wanted to wear the dress on my Bday which is on the 8th March. He promised to get the dress for me.
I then called him on Friday the 27th of Feb to follow up on the order. He then told me that Cavendish Mall has misplaced the dress however he found one in a 16 at Craddle Stone Mall and has ordered it and it should be in Sandton Saturday or Sunday. I told him I will come collect the dress on Tuesday since as I am coming to the sale.
On Monday 2nd March I called and was advised that Simon is not in and Sophia who answered the phone was going to check the whereabouts of the dress and call me back. Sophia never bothered to call back. I called back and spoke to Bandile and he called me back after speaking to Craddlestone and advised me that the dress is lost, Craddlestone said they send the dress to Eastgate mall. I told him that he must look for that dress as that dress was ordered for me. He then called me back to advise that the dress in indeed on its way to Sandton (that was on Monday 2nd March)
On Tuesday I drove to Sandton to collect my dress and the dress was not there and both Sandile and Bandile were not at work. Was told that I will get a call as soon as the dress is in the shop. Today 3rd March, I have been trying to call Sandton since 9:30, the phone is just ringing. Is this the kind of service that woolworths prides themselves in? How do dresses get misplaced (Cavendish mall & Craddlestone). May I please have a competent person to assist me in getting my dress.
Have feedback for Woolworths?
