hello I H AH!
since your blog is in english, i’ll reply in english.
well, what can I say… I hate them too, but as often there is no choice, I do shop there.
over the years I’ve had a fair share of arguments with “supermarket managers” about:
-dirty shelves, floors etc.
-products not being available
-uneadible products – just too grose to eat (minced meat is a good example)
but the worst of all is this:
when I go and do my groceries after work, around 17.00, THERE IS NO MORE BREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a supermarket is supposed to have bread – ALWAYS –
they’re open for another 3 hours, and have run out of bread!!!
I really cannot stand that. So last time I went to see the supermarket manager, gave him my basket full of stuff and told him that AGAIN there is no bread, I will now go and get my groceries some place else. Asshole.
Anway. I must say that there is a BIG difference in AH stores in “the west” and in small towns.
I live in “the middle-east” of the Netherlands and stores there are A LOT cleaner, staff are MUCH friendlier.
But I work in Amsterdam and shop there regularly and so I know exactly what you mean.
Keep up the good work with your blog!
PS – have I mentioned their meats, especialy the MINCED MEAT is absolutely DISGUSTING! I always buy my meat some place else!!!
