“We just don't want your custom. ”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by GreeneyedGirl (2 reviews written)

Since taking over from Somerfield, the Co-op has run down the supermarket on Stenson Road Derby to such an extent that the impression is that they don't actually want customers. Their latest trick has left me stupified: they've stopped manning the checkouts! I don't mean that they've installed automated checkouts - that would be an improvement; no, they have simply stopped putting any staff on the checkouts at all. About two weeks out of every four an elderly lady comes in to man one till - at… Read Full Review

“Out of date food & high prices (Swindon) ”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by Alessandra147 (1 review written)

The Co-op in Cavendish Square Swindon is appalling , the veg is always in a poor state and the fruit is of a poor state aswell. But the biggest problem is out of date stock on the shelves! , there were biscuits there that had Januarys date on them! and other items that were way past the sell by date too , Sadly Co-Op prices are much higher than other supermarkets aswell. The Good point is The Staff are very friendly at the Cavendish shop though and always give a nice smile eventhough no doubt… Read Full Review

“Made to wait”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by sickofwaiting (1 review written)

I so object to being made to wait to pay with a trolley full of shopping while the cashier serves two people in the queue after me, first, because they are buying less. It is a disgrace that she places people who are paying less with more importance and does not feel justified to call anyone else to serve as it will take as long!! The fact that they would have to wait until someone else came, to me was correct rather than making me wait while she served them instead of getting someone from… Read Full Review

“Why I shop at Tesco”

I moved to this area ( Bispham village ) in Feb .We have a Co-Op on oneside of the village carpark and a Tesco on the other .Because of bad experiance with co-op in the past ,my choice was to shop at the Tesco.I don't do a big shop everyweek ,prefering to buy in items I need everyday,so you could say I'm a daily shopper .As Tesco was very busy every time I went ,I decided mybe Co-op was my best option .But after visiting this stort everyday for last 2 weeks.I'm going back to Tesco.

“Dreadful staff!”

Written on: 22/04/2014 by Ethen497 (1 review written)

No wonder they are in trouble. Lancaster Road Enfield branch: One member of staff had not heard of Crème Fraiche or fromage frais - which is widely in use these days. At the till, the assistant closed the till before he gave me my change - he apparently didn't know he was supposed to give me change. I had to wait until he served the next customer before he gave it to me. After a lengthy closure due to rat infestation (!) earlier in the year, and a complete revamp, this store is a disgrace… Read Full Review

“Swanage Co-op Hopeless”

Written on: 02/04/2014

Agree with two reviews below about Swanage Co-op. Rude can't be bothered staff and poor management. Will not be shopping there again, they don't deserve to be in business. Recommend getting in the car to Poole!… Read Full Review

“Hairy Bread again”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Turnerwy455 (1 review written)

Clearly the staff in the CO-op on Forton Road (next to the Pizza Hut) do not care if their hair is all over the bread and cakes they sell. 8 times I have found hair on bread and cakes over the last six months alone, that's more than once per month. An apology is acceptable after the first but this has happened repeatedly over the last year. It happened most on a Sunday, but I have found it on other mid week days also. The 'bakers' do not wear any hair net, unlike the staff in other… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/02/2014 by Boxall123 (1 review written)

What on earth is going on in this shop. Staff don't care equipment is broken and never gets repared. Stock is low and out of date at times. Visited less and less over the past months and will never go in again. Close it and open a shop that does what Rustington centre needs and deserves!!… Read Full Review

“Very pleased with my local Co-Operative ”

Written on: 24/02/2014

I think that the Co-Operative is a brilliant shop, that is full of everything I need. One thing that is different to other shops, is that the co-op has their own range of non-animal tested products. Also the co-op is very welcoming and polite. I like how organised the co-op is because it makes it easy to find all the items I need another thing I like about this shop is that the make a lovely range of fresh breads… Read Full Review

“Tideswell Coop Terrible!!”

Written on: 17/02/2014

This store is getting worse by the day, the staff are rude and unhelpful, prefering to play on their mobiles than help and serve. Often there are queues and the poor member of staff on the tills is the only person on the shop floor, god knows where the other members of staff disappear too, the manager is rude with a couldntcareless attitude which seems to have filtered down into the staff, with the exception of one or two. There are always gaps on the shelves and rarely have what i need in… Read Full Review

“Co-Op”

Written on: 06/09/2013

Some good deals, mainly understaffed by people who have no motivation. Often not knowing even how the tills work, service is painfully slow. Stock is either in boxes on the floor or in cages blocking the aisles. This sad state of affairs appears to be common to all branches, they seem to be running themselves into the ground… Read Full Review

“Remember the days when air was free? No longer!!”

Written on: 15/06/2013

i have just been to my local petrol station, which has been a co-operative food store for some years now. I filled up with £40 of fuel, and as I went to pay, I noticed one of my tyres was a little flat. So when I paid, I asked for a token for the air machine.. only to be informed that it would cost me 40p!!!! no recognition of the fact that I'd just filled up my car with their petrol and made them money.. I was annoyed when garages first started charging for air use.. but back then it was… Read Full Review
