I had a hankering for a bacon and egger the other morning, so I set off to the nearest grocery store. I picked up a package of bacon that looked pretty lean, that is, until I got it home and into the frying pan. The whole package was about 90% fat!

The only scraps of meat in the entire pack were on the edge that was against the plastic. Once you look inside, it's nothing but fat with a tiny scrap of meat along the very edge that's visible on the front of the package. How misleading to your customers! And disappointing. Now my mouth is filling with grease as I take one rubbery, gristly bite after another of this egger sandwich, my guts are turning. There is something seriously wrong with the world, we are literally living in bacon country, but can't get a decent slice of the stuff! Well, I called the company so the jokes on they are refunding my money. I'll just use this pack of pork fat to flavor my beet greens.

Self checkout never works. I don't get paid to work at a grocery store, why must I check my own groceries?  Half the time they only accept debit, not cash, so you finally get it all checked thru only to find out you've wasted your time. You don't pay me to work here, so stop expecting your customers to do what you should HIRE people to do.  and Please for the love of God, Stop hiring senior citizens as check out clerks.  They move like slow molasses running uphill.  And all they wanna do is TALK TALK TALK to every Tom, Dick and Harry in the line. Put a fire under your arse and get poppin'!  Waiting 15 minutes in a checkout line because all you have on cash are two old fogeys who got all the time in the world to yak!  Very annoying. You should have all the checkout lines FILLED with clerks who can do the job efficiently.  Move the seniors to the flower counter or the entrance to work as a greeter, because they are too slow for cash! Get with it, or move on! —Retire Already You Old Coot

Once again, as we near the Jewish holiday of Passover there is no matzah to be found on the peninsula. I’m not asking for much. It’s a flat dry unleavened bread, it’s not like it is a challenging perishable item. It is essential to Passover. The usual location was sold out, another one “wasn’t carrying Passover food this year” and the third shop I visited today directed me towards the ryvita section. It has been like this every year I have lived here. Buck up Halifax—stock the matzah. —Disgruntled And Matzah-less

Every time I go in a certain grocery store for a two-litre bottle of Big 8 sparkling water, there is never any on the shelves.  I made another special trip to your store for nothing, you bastards. There's always that awful salty soda water that nobody likes, but never any sparkling. WHY? Is it because you'd rather gouge your customers, forcing them to buy that expensive Pellegrino that's only half the size of the Big 8 brand and not as bubbly, but double the price.  Why can't your no-good stock boys keep Big 8 sparkling water on the shelves? There is never any there. Like, the last 10 times I went in—NONE! But there is always a price marker on the empty shelf, so I know you still carry it.  Those stock boys are just lazy and don't want to lug more out.  They're all out back smoking and not doing their job. Get it together! —Mini Pizzas And Pellegrino

I went into the major grocery store only to not find stuff where it should be. It was noon on Saturday 21st and shelves were empty and aisles were jammed with carts full of stuff they were moving to another aisle! It was a clusterfuck of the first degree. The store layout is not logical at the best of times. I couldn’t find anything. I left. I’m sure this is how the problems at Sears started. Mismanaged and nobody gives a fuck. The store could be reduced by half if they removed the fluff items. Books and clothes that nobody wants, jeans for infants that sell for $20!The staff at the snack bar are prepared to give you the finger if you ask for more than they are prepared to deliver (which is fuck all!! yay for droids, bring them on). Management simply doesn’t have the means to deal with customer complaints. Can you find somewhere to leave valid complaints? Google it. I guess management is made up of greedy trolls from another planet, no capacity for customer service.

The biggest indicator of mismanagement is that it’s a 24-hour store. They are too stupid or too cheap to do the work after midnight. If you have shares, you might want to bail now. —Pissed Off

To the retired square grandparents in our local gourmet grocery store. I may look a bit dumpy on the weekend when I go shopping on the weekend but I am accomplished and understand very well that kids sometimes pick stuff up and walk out of stores with it. I noticed my 5 year old daughter picked up a newspaper at the checkout, but before I had a chance to tell her it belongs to the store, you did it for me. And then you had the nerve, when I said I was about to tell her to put it back, to say “I wasn't sure” with that snide, judgemental look as though I was a lower class insect who didn't know right from wrong. Focus on parenting your own grandkids, and keep your rich, entitled, retire out of other peoples business. —Paying Your Pension

I'm a vegan and feel the burden of being vegan in Halifax. I waste time shopping at many grocery stores sense not one can provide all the items I want. My favourite vegan snack is usually restocked a month later after I buy them all causing me to have to shop at nearly 10 grocery stores. Then, I feel the struggle finding a girlfriend since I'm constantly rejected for how I eat. Where is a vegan to go to feel happy in Halifax? —Lonely, hungry vegan

Why does old white cheddar taste like barf and why won't it melt? Other cheese tastes a little better, but completely vanishes when it melts. I put some on my quesadilla and after I took it out of the oven, it had turned to nothing but pure oil. WTF is this crap??? Your product sucks!!! —Make it better Older Entries »
