Allow me to air my grave displeasure with Food Lovers Market store situated at Levy Junction. I went to buy some food from the clean and nice looking store around 19 hours on Monday 25th February 2013 but to my disappointment the shop was selling expired polony some of which expired on 7th February 2013. I demanded that I see the shop manager, but two of the gentlemen working there (one only identified as Mac D) told me the manager was not in by the time.
‘Food Lovers selling expired food’
I personally ordered one of the dazed looking men to remove all the expired stock from the fridge. As he was removing the expired polony from the fridge, the expired polony filled the store’s black basket.
Mac D who has his name written (tattooed) on his left hand said he was the man in-charge if the manager is not around.
“I think we need to deal with this merchandiser because it’s too much now, we have been talking to him but he seems not to be changing.” Said Mac D and his friend.
I have decided to take this matter into the public domain so as to alert the general public because our Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has seemed to be toothless. I reported a similar case concerning Shoprite close to a month ago now, no response has been forwarded to me even after much emphasis from CCPC. It seems CCPC only acts when someone takes such complaints to the media because just two days after I reported my incident about Shoprite Cairo road, another shopper complained of potatoes having stickers that claim the potatoes were grown from Zambia when in fact not, CCPC acted promptly and gave an sugar coated answer.
I want CCPC to prove that they are not toothless as they are usually called. They should act and act now. This is wrong! Let’s not allow our citizens get sick because of incompetence by some people (those in offices, shops, etc).
CCPC use this information I have given you to get to the bottom of this highly exploiting of unsuspecting shopping persons. I have an audio recording of our discussion with the two gentlemen.
