Food Lion - customer service

Hi I was just inside food lion on Martin Luther King Dr in High Point. For starters I walked into a line at Customer service I waited for about 5 minutes before I asked a customer waiting had anyone said to her they were sending someone she replied no. I then politely asked if they could send someone so we could be helped. He said yes. Ok still waiting. I was next in line when it was my turn I got no kind of geeeting I had to say "hello how are you" which I thought was very rude since this is a place of business. I then gave her my check to cash she started "cashing" my check but before she even really begin she said she didn't think they could cash. So she goes over and grabs an employee who appeared to be off the clock (he was on the phone) && he was in line at another register could we cash it he replied no she came back and told me they could not without reasoning I could not understand why so I asked the gentleman that he came n stated "they did not have enough money in the store" the check was ONLY $500. I thought they were very unprofessional. Also I felt they just did not want to cash my check due to laziness. After being turned away I called the store only to be hung up on after asking to speak with a manager. Then I called back a lady answered and placed me on hold.

Food Lion - rotten meat

I bought lamb chops from Food Lion; when I got home and opened the tray it stinked like a 3 weeks dead body. I launched a complaint with corporate but never got a response. I guess they are overwhelmed with complaints for their bad products and service. Word to the wise, don't get the illusion you're saving money at Food Lion; in any case you're risking your health.

Food Lion - pepsi max

One of the 12 packs of pepsi max I purchased had 2 cans that was smashed & empty inside of box.
I drink this beverage from the time my eyes open until I go to bed.

I'm just saying I get a lot of cases or 12 packs (Depending on which way it's on sale) and I have problems quite often and don't usually complain.
Tho day i'm just fed up with the money I lost to this problem.
Thank you for your time.
Sincerely,

Food Lion - cashiers had bad customer service

I went into the store to pick up a few items this morning and when I get ready to checkout, the cashier told me she couldn't ring me up because she hadn't logged it and she had an attitude as well. So I just went to next cashier. When she saw that, she told me I could come back to her register, but I'm like this if you give me an attitude, don't expect me...

Food Lion - unethical behavior/false accusations

Food Lion in Garner NC on 5th Ave is a joke. My daughter had been working there since June of this year. I had to pick her up today, August 15, 2016, because they falsely accused her of stealing when she was given a "On Me Sticker" to get something to eat 3 months ago(back in June when she was first hired). I asked to see the surveillance footage of her...

Food Lion - trying to order a product food lion does not carry

On August 1st, 2016, I called Food Lion to complain on why it takes so long for them to find out if they can get a product I am interested to stock in my local store. After calling customer service, I asked why does it take up to 2 weeks to find out if they can provide a product, they do not presently carry. After holding for 15 minutes, the agent said...

Food Lion - unprofessional behavior/untrained cashier

have had repeated unpleasant experiences at your stores at the hands of your cashiers and today I had a particularly upsetting experience with a cashier named Lola Rose. This wasn't our first run in. Lola Rose has been bitter, hateful, and lazy every time I've been forced to go down her checkout lane. It seems no one ever taught her how to take coupons or...

Food Lion - manager over cashiers

When you walk in the doors of the Food Lion in Bennettsville. SC, you can feel the tension and the unhappiness of the employees. I have witnessed, on more than one occasion, the way Theresa, the manager over the cashiers, walks around like an army sergeant criticizing cashiers in front of customers. To me, this should be done in private. She constantly...

Food Lion - disgust in produce

Recently shopped Food Lion. Was looking at strawberries, sealed in hard plastic containers. A two or three year old child jumped in front of me, opened a package and started shoving strawberries in his mouth. His mother obviously thought it was cute and did nothing. I reported it to the produce employee who said "we really don't mind." I was too timid to...

Food Lion - employee inequity

Company won't allow cashiers the same privileges everyone else in the store has. Other employees are free to leave their work stations any time they choose to get to the bathroom, break room, water fountain or for a smoke. Managers generally allow cashiers bathroom breaks on demand, but cashiers can only get a drink if it's their break time or customer...

Food Lion - jerk!

Food Lion needs to watch who they make a store manager. I used to love shopping t this store. Fresh veggies, meats, and deli items are always fresh. (I always miss my food lion when I go to the beach.) The employees are always friendly, well they used to be! Now everyone looks miserable. I have asked them all what's going on and they all state that the...

Food Lion - food lion is racist supports racism in general

Store Manager: Jessie Wright deliberately targets African-American customers- mistreating or insulting them for shopping at his store! Blatant racial discrimination practices at The Food Lion Stores are very routine in The South! I have vowed to myself that I will never do business in an establishment like Food Lion ever again. I may be only one person but hopefully through this website, ReportYourComplaint.com, my voice will be heard by many people and something will be done about this. I am not out for financial gain or to sue Food Lion for racial discrimination, I am just looking to have situations like this corrected so it doesn’t happen to anyone else that is African-American or another minority that might be discriminated against.

Racial discrimination is not only wrong but it is unethical and it should not exist like this in the year 2010.
