Shoppers At A Co-Op Store Are Leaving Some Very Strange Comments

People who shop in the Co-op on Iffley Road, Oxford, have a lot to say about things. H/T @IffleyComments.

1. At the Co-operative Food store on Iffley Road, near Oxford, there is a comments book. Customers leave some interesting suggestions, and a manager often responds.

And thankfully, it is all captured by the @IffleyComments Twitter account.

2. One person wrote: “Tortelloni?” More is being ordered, said the manager.

3. Then: “WHAT’S HAPPENED TO MY WIFE? SHE CAME IN HERE A WEEK AGO TO ASK FOR SOME TORTELLINI!”

4. “STAFF SHOULD BE HAPPIER :-( “

5. “HOW CAN YOU NOT SELL BACON?!! ALSO, HANDLES ON YOUR T-ROLL 9 PACKS WOULD MAKE CARRYING MUCH EASIER. BUT, HOW CAN YOU NOT SELL BACON?!!!”

6. Manager’s response:


Hi thanks for your comments. We do sell bacon, perhaps it was out of stock on your last visit – my apologies for that. The 9-pack toilet rolls do also have a handle on the side of them.

7. “Too much brown chocolate can we have some white chocolate please and who even scratched it out that was rude – Big Mamma.”

Big Mamma wants white chocolate.

8. “Every time I come Dave looks at me funny and he said he will break my legs.”

Dave has apparently been threatening to break someone's legs. We doubt he would, to be honest.

9. Note the manager’s response on that one:


If there is any issue with a colleague, please speak to a member of management.

10. “Please get in Taramasalata and Lemon cake obvs not together – seperate items.”

Separate items, obviously.

15. “Soreen malt loaf has just gone up by more than 1⁄3! (99p -> 1.37) Why??”

The rise and fall of a @SoreenHQ malt loaf is an emotional business.

16. Manager’s reponse:


We do have different offers every promotional period tha runs for 3 weeks. Soreen malt loaf will be on offer again through out the year.

17. “THANKS FOR JUST NOT BEING TESCO.”

Thanks for just not being @Tesco.

18. “Who chose the name of this shop?”

???

19. “You love men.” Manager’s response: “Thank you”.

'You love men.'

20. We contacted the store’s parent company, Midcounties Co-operative, to ask if it had any comment to make.

The firm said: “Thanks for bringing it to our attention but it’s not something we’d comment on.”
