i called in home bargains today and intended to buy some alcohol amongst other things. unfortunately i found myself getting very embarrassed and felt quite upset because i had a teenager with me. although i had clarified that the alchohol was for myself i was refused this. i again confirmed it was for myself and they told me if i had a 7year old daughter they would serve me without discussion.
that is discrimination and how can the staff/policy decide because someone is with me of a certain age if i will be served or not when i specifically informed them that it was for myself...
after the embarrasement i spoke to a couple of my friends and 3 others have been deliberately embarrassed in this way. i was eventually served but some of my professional friends refuse to enter the premise again and i feel distraught and angry at the way this policy is put forward. i feel i was being called a liar and most adults would simply walk away feeling quite humiliated by the whole episode.
i intend to boycot the store because the way it is handled is completely insensitive and discriminative.
it is a disgrace that this behaviour is encouraged, i am a great believer of customer service and there are ways things like this could be handled.
i am a carer of a disabled child, thank god she wasn't with me at the time!!!!

Credit crunch? Get yourself to Home Bargains in Selby then! Its one of those shops that sells everything you really didnt think you need but when you go in you see the prices as being so cheap that you cannot resist! A bachelors dream and situated in the centre of town right next to the Abbey Vaults so with the money you save you can treat yourself to a couple of pints!
Although not as big as some Home Bargain stores its still a fair size and the prices really do have to be seen to be believed, its like a Wise Owl superstore! Anyone remember Wise Owl?

Home Bargains is situated in Market Lane, opposite Yorkshire Bank. I think the store has been opened about a year now and has been greatly welcomed by the Selby residents. The store replaced the indoor market which was called the In-shops that never really took off. There is no parking for the store but there is a fair sized Pay and Display car park just around the corner. The store is light and spacious. I would describe Home Bargains as a bit of an Aladdin’s cave as they seem to stock just about everything from toiletries, toys, baby essentials, stationary, household, foods and drinks. The stock is usually branded good quality products but significantly reduced. The toy section is well stocked and many of them are below half the retail price. I use the toiletries and food sections the most as they must be a good 30% cheaperer than the supermarkets. I have to say I rate this store really high as I have now cut my main shop in the supermarket and replaced many of the good with Home Bargains. I shop here weekly.
