why does lakewood have the worse customer service for grocery stores?
went to evergreen a few weeks ago and they over charged me for salad and yogurt.
i called up and they blamed me for not looking at their ad instead of only looking at their signs next to their items on the shelf's.
after about 20 min they said they would credit me the extra price that they charged me items and put it onto my phone number to be used next time.
i went back this week and they only credit me the amount for the extra charge for the salad, when i spoke to the manager he said that since he doesnt know how much to credit me back for the yogurt that he cant do anything.

first they over charge me
then they say its my fault
then they keep me on the phone for 20 min
then they dont credit me back the right amount.
then they say there is nothing they can do since its been a few weeks

this would never happen in pomegranate
If pomegranate would be in Lakewood, it wouldn't happen either...

I don't know why you're so surprised. It's common knowledge that Jewish stores have terrible return policies and worse customer service. The reason they can get away with it is because they're providing a niche product, so they know you don't have a choice.

That being said, certain stores are the exception. For example, I've never had an issue getting refunds from NPGS for spoiled or damaged items.

Well considering the higher risk of buying spoiled items there without such a policy they would be empty.

+1. I don't understand why people shop there.. Still more expensive than BP, and they sell old stuff.

What does more expensive than BP have to do with anything? Should everyone travel to BP every week for groceries?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

If they weren't more expensive it would answer that the spoiled items cut corners

That still doesn't explain his shock as to why people would shop at the cheapest store in town.

Every conversation about this has always come to the conclusion that the difference is marginal, that it comes down to the items on stale, or the psakim of hagaon harav baal habayis hazeh.

The managers know the matzav. Once when I was returning a moldy item the manager told me that I could return it with no problem but I should know that really they charge extra for the mold.

I don't travel to BP to do my grocery shopping. I just expressed my surprise that in a kollel town the "co-op" grocery is more expensive than an upscale grocery in BP and that they could even get away with selling old stuff, too. Goes to show something that belongs in the "Take Back Lakewood" thread, IMO.

No it wouldn't. Most of the people that shop there now would go regardless.
