You know how I, along with others on here often bang on here about supporting town centre shops. Well, here’s a slap in the face for me: Today, I was shopping in WHSmith and bought some stationary and magazines. I went to the only staffed till (although the lady was doing some paperwork)and the assistant said I should go to the self serve till. I said I’d rather be served. The reply astounded me “I’m busy, you’ll have to wait”.
My reply “Well maybe I’ll spend my money somewhere else”.
I went to a shop in Manchester the other day – there was no manned till at all! Even the cigarettes went through the self-service, although you had to ask the man who made sure everything is working to get them from the cabinet.
Makes me wonder how long it will take for that to trickle out to places like Wrexham.
I’ve never once gone to a self service till in one of the major supermarkets with over a tenner’s worth of shopping and not had to ask for assistance due to a red light coming on, oh and you cant buy certain items that need the security tags taken off without assistance
I don’t ever recall applying for a job at Asda but, I do the same as the checkout operators when i serve myself, and for less pay
Exactly why I don’t use ’em. Now, if I was being offered a discount for using self-service, I might consider it.
