The selection of fruit and vegetables was good, and so were the prices. Sadly, the service was poor. I was blocked in the aisles by two staff with trolleys who decided to have a conversation and didn't bother even looking at me. These people were middle-aged and old enough to know better. I was then served by a young woman, who finally acknowledged my existence in between calling out to other people in the shop over my head and chewing gum - yuck! I do not expect to be faced by someone chewing gum when making a purchase
I don't know what happened with the communication with the previous review. My experience has been fantastic with all staff to date. Due to the fine quality of vegetables and fruit it is a very busy place, sometimes we have to wait to be served. That's got to tell you something about a place. What I love about this grocer is that you can buy bags of $3- dollar fruit and vege. Even better is the bags contain fresh produce. Unlike other places I've visited. Now with the fresh pure quality milk machine it's got even better. Enjoy
Great fruit and veges - I only wish I could say the same about the service which was rude and unfriendly. On 2 separate occasions Marion unceremoniously and loudly slammed my basket sideways on the counter without any comment forcing me to move my wallet. When I asked her for her name she told me " it's on the receipt" - charming attitude and one which has made me decide not to return. Customer service is everything these days and if you don't get it you can shop elsewhere with friendly staff who engage with their customers not treat them with contempt
