I was shopping on Food Lion recently and I picked up some fruit for the house. It was an assorted pre packed bag full of apples, oranges, pears, ect… I thought it would be a nice mixture of different fruit for the house.
I got in line there and it seemed like I stood in line forever! The thing I hate about food lion is that it doesn’t have self check out lines, nor do they ever have enough lanes open to serve the amount of customers checking out. So I stood there frustrated but eventually got to me and I paid for my groceries and left.
I got home and started to unpack my groceries and put them away, and thats when I saw it. There were a couple pieces of fruit in my fruit back completely rotten and moldy. I don’t know how I didn’t notice it at Food Lion, but regardless it was gross. I don’t know how Food Lion can keep expired and rotten food on the shelf.
I immediately called Food Lion to let them know about this rotten fruit I was sold and the girl on the phone didn’t really seem to care. She kind of half apologized but wasn’t sincere about it at all. I was also told there was nothing that she could do about it. I was then rudely hung up on.
I was furious, and marched right down to Food Lion to speak with the manager. I dragged my bag full of rotten fruit inside and demanded to speak the store manager. The manager was very nice about the situation. He calmed me down and offered to refund my money.
I told him that was the least he better do for me. He offered me nothing more than an apology after that. I stormed out very angry and vowed never to return to Food Lion again. It is outrageous that they would sell rotten fruit in their stores. I will not be back ever again.
