“Going down hill.....”

Written on: 06/07/2015 by LesleyMuschamp (1 review written)

I visited your Welwyn Garden City store Yesterday at 0830 and expected more. Very poor overall, shelves not stocked, fresh milk and juice sell-by dates on the day, had to queue as only one till open. I used to shop here regularly but I would be back. In comparison I am regular visitor to your store in Lourinha (Portugal) due to the fact we have property out there - great store, fresh and clean with good sales of local goods… Read Full Review

“False advertising = 1 less customer!”

Written on: 17/02/2015 by AdriannaCoughlin145 (1 review written)

Like many of the other reviewers i too was swayed by their 'great offers'. Went early yesterday morning to purchase the cordless circular saw, surprise surprise! no stock but 100's of the actual blades. Spoke to Manager to advised they had 'sold out' I pressed him further to ask when & how many were delivered, when he actually admitted they had not received any at all..... if Lidl think they are being smart by 'false advertising' by luring customers to do their shopping whilst looking for… Read Full Review

“Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.”

Written on: 05/02/2015 by Edna Mode (4 reviews written)

I've been shopping at Lidl for quite a few years now, I'm fortunate enough to be within driving distance of FOUR of them! Love Lidl, think they are great value and their range is ever expanding. Their laundry products are particularly good, and I also find their toiletries inexpensive. My cats don't like the Lidl own brand tinned cat food ( minted lamb being the one that my ginger tom tried to cover up with his paw like it was something he'd left in the litter tray!!), but they absolutely… Read Full Review

“fantastic supermarket”

Written on: 11/09/2014 by omMoser127 (1 review written)

No idea why the reviews are bad I think most are made up. Store is very clean and tidy and the staff are polite. Food is very nice and never out of date.I will admit lidl haven't got a lot of choice but they do have the basics. I just wouldn't go for frozen because they only have limited amount… Read Full Review

“Best supermarket ever”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by Amir266 (1 review written)

I always been a big Tesco shopper, because of the vouchers and club card points etc. Spent £150 every week. But after a while realised that even everyday things got more expensive . Seen a lidl advert on TV , decided to visit our local store, Dumfries ( Scotland ). Shock and horror. So clean and tidy. Very cheap. Lovely bakery with the smell of fresh bread. Produce always fresh and plenty to choose from, very good quality meet and dairy products. Love the Deluxe range. Recommend washing powder… Read Full Review

“BEWARE SHOPPING IN LIDLS - CUSTOMER SERIOUS INJURY HOT...”

Written on: 25/08/2014 by Pritchard187 (1 review written)

This is my story of a visit to of the Lidl Paignton Devon Branch 3 weeks ago, as I made my way to the checkout the gentleman on the checkout put up a sign indicating checkout closing. I was just about turn towards the next checkout, when suddenly and without warning tripped over a large pack of water bottles that had been abandoned by the checkout. I had no chance to steady myself and I fell forwards and finally landed with a crash on my front. As I did, my ribs and knees slammed into the… Read Full Review

“Good amonst bad items, good prices, terrible customer...”

Written on: 25/07/2014

Many items are good quality at good prices, many items are of poor quality - especially their non-food specials. You have to be discerning. Simple in-store exchanges and returns go simply and easily, but for more serious complaints, their "Customer Services" is anything but. Your best recourse is small claims court or Consumer Direct. If you don't like those options, you might decide to just accept your loss. Lidl won't be much help… Read Full Review

“Cheap, good to visit to see how not to give customer...”

Written on: 11/07/2014 by Monaghan169 (1 review written)

I visit Lidl in Pitsea only to buy the odd bottle of wine or some beers. The service is so bad its funny. How do Lidl find staff who have no clue to give even the basic service of thank you or please? Although, in their defence it can be highly amusing to watch how rude and uninterested they can be. I particularly enjoy the "Im off for a fag" when there is a queue of customers waiting. Another favourite is they seem to think I'm interested that they finish in 10 minutes and cant wait to get out… Read Full Review

“ Always caveat emptor - let the buyer beware!”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by gyMadden106 (1 review written)

On display at my local Lidl store today yellow-green mottled cucumbers ugly diseased things like last week when I complained. The manager said that he had phoned head office only to be told that they were perfectly all right if they were straight and firm - it was the type. As a former fruit and veg buyer for a supermarket firm I want to know what variety of cucumbers exhibit such awful characteristics ?… Read Full Review

“good on the whole”

Written on: 25/05/2014 by NorfolkNman (6 reviews written)

I have worked in food manufacturing plants and i know what standards Lidl and their parent company Kaufland expects. Take the frozen peas for an example, they are the exact same grade as a well known store with the initials of M&S has! Meat is second to none. Non food lines are fairly good, i have bedding sets i brought years ago and they are still going strong. the only things that miff me are when they have a limited time special, and you don't see it again until next year, Denmark… Read Full Review

“Poor quality products and even worse service”

Written on: 16/05/2014

It is not the first time I have bought poor quality product, which is not obvious before you actually try it out. This time I have requested a refund at South Ockendon store where I bough it, but the store manager refused. Then I have contacted the CS where they have offered a depreciated refund, which made a £15 worth and barely used waffle maker to deplete to £5 in just 2 years. There was a condition though that I have to take the product back to the store again. When I have mentioned the… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2014

So you wanted a full refund on an item you brought two years ago? I have had plenty of Silvercrest items in the past, and never had an issue.
