Unexpected early closing at LIDL, Rusholme

LIDL, Wilmslow Road, Rusholme

With a new Morrisons about to open next door you might think that LIDL would be keen to look after its existing customers? Not so… On Tuesday evening the Rusholme branch shop closed two hours early.

In the minute I was outside a series of disappointed shoppers arrived to find a notice about undertaking improvements. And, in my case, the patronising marketing speak about extending the refrigerators so they could “stock even more tasty products” just served to heighten the annoyance.

Why not pay the staff overtime and do it after normal closing, as other shops seem to do?

I’ve been buying more from ALDI recently. The meat, fruit and veg are better, with a greater number of staff on the tills. I wonder how many people feel the same way?

Britain throws away £10bn of food every year

‘Each day, according to the government-backed report, Britons throw away 4.4 million apples, 1.6 million bananas, 1.3 million yoghurt pots, 660,000 eggs, 550,000 chickens, 300,000 packs of crisps and 440,000 ready meals. And for the first time government researchers have established that most of the food waste is made up of completely untouched food products – whole chickens and chocolate gateaux that lie uneaten in cupboards and fridges before being discarded.’
