Out of convenience we often will do a quick dash to the local Woolworths, which happens to bean a 1.5 kms away. Recently we have found that their some of their vegetables and fruit is inedible. The first strike was when we found a punnet of strawberries with a couple of mouldy ones in the bottom and hadn’t gotten to the counter. I had to interrupt the conversation of two ladies, who acted like I was an inconvenience and then nonchalantly said thanks, put the strawberries to the side and carried on with what they were doing. A couple of weeks later the same special end cap had some brocolini on it and when we picked it up it bent in two in our hands. Once again we complained to staff, asked to speak the manager and was given the runaround and a nonchalant attitude, even when we took the duty manager to the end cap where almost the entire brocolini on the shelves was affected. Tonight when my husband returned home with a yellow capsicum that was rotten in the middle was the last straw. This time we were given a refund thank goodness. Luckily we will be soon reestablishing our garden with extra raised garden beds and more produce. Anyone else had any such experiences?
