Yeah folks I went to good old Stop and Shop which has to change their name to Stop and Check. It started when I brought home a rotisseire chicken simply because I was absolutely too tired to cook and on Friday they sell them for 2 for 11 dollars.
I unload the packages and put things away before hoping to enjoy my dinner. Appetizer of sushi was just fine. I can always count on that because the guy who makes it doesn't work for Stop and Shop.
The chicken is still warm as I grabbed one that was "under that lamp". I cut it open to find that the meat is raw at the bones.
I am about to call Stop and Check when I decide to look at my receipt. I first notice that despite giving my "card" to the cashier the price of milk does not reflect the discount of 30 cents. I had also handed a rain check to the cashier allowing me to get a free Hagen Daz gelato with the purchase of two pints of their regular ice cream on sale a 2 for 7 dollars. Didn't give me the cold bag thing as noted in ad.
Cat food on sale 24 for 10 dollars...Friskies.. the 5.5 ounces...when it's that price I need to stock up. When I buy the cat food at that price or another sale when its 20 for 10 dollars I bag it. I bag everything I buy so that when I get to the register, what is in each bag is what I want back it that bag. It is much easier for me as bags are now separated in categories....I even bring an insulated bag so that I know that that bag has everything that needs to go into the freezer or refrigerator first. Okay....anyway. I wound up with two bags each having 24. However, my receipt shows that I have four more. The cashier scanned each can but it didn't look as if it were done correctly....which is why I checked.
I call the store and speak with a manager on duty by the name of Rog. He said that he is new and only working there for a month. I first tell him about the chicken and ask if the policy of getting double my money back was still being honored. He didn't know. He had to ask a cashier who said that I needed to bring back the chicken in order to get my money back. I asked him how long should I keep the chicken as I'm not coming in like the next day....the cashier tells him that I should put it in my refrigerator. I just did my shopping so how long do you think it's going to hang there before it stinks up my refrigerator....a week?
I called the next day to talk with the store manager. She told me to throw away the chicken and bring in the receipt and she'll take care of all.
