Mismanaged The New Management

| Edmonton, AB, Canada | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Money

(Our small store, previously belonging to a large chain, has been bought out by a smaller chain. Most customers are aware of it and acknowledge the changes.)

Me: “And your total is [total]. Will that be everything today?”

Customer: “Aren’t you going to take my loyalty card?”

Me: “Sorry, but as we’re no longer owned by [Previous Chain] and [New Chain] doesn’t have cards, we’re not accepting any of them.”

Customer: “Well, I NEVER! What AWFUL customer service this is. How on EARTH is anyone supposed to know that this store changed owners?”

Me: “You walked in the front doors under a banner proclaiming the new name, with a cart labelled with the new name, buying brand products of the new chain while passing by dozens of posters explaining the changes, and are now standing in front of me, while I’m wearing the new store uniform, holding a flyer with the new store name.”

Customer: “Well, how was I supposed to know?!”
