So always support the independent business, and I have now become a blogger as i have photographed something i was about to eat, knowing i would review it

10/12/16 Update on the blog, Unfortunately  this wonderful Sandwich shop is  No More , Such a shame, however there is always  ” the tank” for great coffee in town

 

 

I have learnt this weekend that there is going to be a change in Bognor Regis.

“Oh No , shock horror  ”

I might not be able to use the best sandwich shop in the area / in the world ( that i have tried so far ) for much longer, I’m not worried about this cos it’s for  all the right reasons IMG_201

So  when I was out with  my Number 1 son  this weekend in town looking , as you do for a pirate hat  for me for   the band I drum in . after we had shopped  ( unsuccessfully )  I did get the opportunity to use  the finest Sandwich shop I know  again  and I had the chance to get one for the boy .

obviously I’m talking about the sandwich factory in bognor

I have used them for many years never had a bad sandwich from them and will use them for as long as I can

this time as  previously I had myIMG_20141108_122053479_HDR bacon brie and cranberry baguette it was such a nice sandwich I even took a photograph of it and I know that official makes me a blogger

 

and as for my sons chicken tikka….there was just NO  space in a huge baguette  for any more filling .

I guess  you get what you pay for in this world, This  place isn’t as cheap as a tesco , asda, sainsburys or other . But it’s just better . so if you are here in town, butlins, on a day out.  , its definitely ( in my opinion )  the Best place to get a Sarnie

 

& NO , I wasn’t given these  items, i paid  for them , full price , it was just so nice and important to tell people how good this place is and support LOCAL traders

 

what a great little place, in a lovely little village -” jerichos”

On a late summers afternoon, when you are strolling through a large village , and you see the usual brands of Tesco, costa, boots,whsmith and a few others, you might be surprised to see a little independent shop  doing so well, …. well we found  Jerichos. What a great little place, not only selling sweets  that i hadn’t seen for ages, but selling some of the imported stuff that you just cant get in the UK . The village is rustington in west Sussex its a quaint place but im not sure if village does it justice for its size.

There is plenty of parking, plenty of shops , and most importantly plenty of places to look around..Any way back to Jerichos. Great selection to choose from . Prices not too bad  ( £1.00 for a can of cherry dr pepper )  which i  don’t think was too badIMAG0859 . Gave the boys the modern equivalent of  a few pennies they could spend, as I’m not one of those dads that takes kids to places then says they can’t have this or that . and let them go and choose the bits they wanted  .I’m not to  sure about the ” yoo hoo” but it sounded nice.

 

Sorry I cant give you pics of what the boys had, it’s all been scoffed ( I suppose it doesn’t hurt once in a while )

But one thing I did get which I have been looking for  for ages, is the  bag that has the descriptions of the jelly IMAG0860beans from Jelly Belly  so I can now  get started on the pot I got given earlier in the year that  had no flavours listed on them

Any way, like all good businesses there is a www for  jerichos   and of course , a face book and all the usual  tweet stuff, I just thought that in the spirit of having found somewhere nice , I would share with you , I have not been sponsored for this blog

A Blog of 2 definate halves, And yes , spilt milk IS worth it

I have to be factually correct with this blog, so here goes….

  • The problem : Spilt milk in a car ,
  • The Reason: someone in store selected the wrong Milk from the shelf
    The Issue: Global brand Not wanting to accept responsibility for its staff .

We used Tesco, our local store  
Bognor Regis  for  a click and collect weekly shopping order in 2013, It included all the usual items  for a weeks shopping ( including milk ) .

We collected it from store, it was  loaded it into our car, Basically when we got home some of  the milk had spilt in the boot of the car. We contacted Tesco who refunded the cost of the milk, and sent a new one out to us ( thank you ) , we showed the driver that delivered the new milk, the spillage in the car , and he said we would have to take that up with the store.

He also asked if we would be prepared to write a letter to the store suggesting that the milk  spilling was the manufacturers fault ….

Any one knows me knows that just wasn’t going to happen as it wasn’t the  manufacturer we bought it from , they also know ,that   Milk Stinks if it is left  to soak in , so we asked for the car to go back to the main dealer to be  cleaned and ” de  potentially stink ” .  this took about a week  of emails and calls  and in the end Tesco said they could do it with their  valets at store  and as a favour to us they would valet the whole car for the inconvenience .waves This was a bad move to give them the car, The damage they caused to the interior of the car  was  amazing, it was left with seats and panels that had not dried out  some 6 weeks later.

A meeting was held in the car park  of the store, that felt like a High Noon Meeting from the days of the wild west , the valet said it wasn’t their fault, the store said the matter  had to go to head office, so we  spent another 3-4 weeks  chasing the  head office, only to be told that  i was obviously wrong in what i was saying, so i went  back to the store and had to make a scene in the store with the manager / duty manager  who finally acknowledged that something should be done

We thank Tesco for Finally agreeing to  cover the cost of the repairs £1200+ from their valets, and  the original damage to the boot  where the milk soaked in.

We thank the main Dealer Honda - The Power of Dreams for  agreeing to help us in sorting this out and for their  brilliant service and support , both  from the sales & service teams.

For Both companies i have agreed NOT to name individuals as this would not be fair

My concern is….

  • It took a hell of a lot of phone calls & emails to resolve
  • Tesco seem to want to divert the  problem away from them, back to it being the customers error or  Tesco want to blame  the supplier
  • Tesco  head office Accused  the customer ( me ) of lying
  • It took some one at store manager level to actually get this sorted out after 3 months of calls etc.

Tesco are still thinking that we will be shopping with them in the future, This is not the case as we have found that in our opinion Sainsbury’s offer  what we consider to  be a better on-line service.

Honda, we went to for the car as they had provided excellent service in the supply  of my last company car , and  although they are ultimately interested in selling cars, the support  with the ” spilt milk ” issue has shown that they really do Go the extra mile to help when needed….

We  buy more milk, than we do new cars, but i know from this experience which  of the 2 companies i would recommend and which i would stay well clear  of in future

Why should it be the customer who has to chase the big corporate  when invariably it isn’t the customer fault 

What a Brilliant Gesture, well done to the shopper, Hope Tesco at least match it ….

I have to credit a friend of mine on face book for this one , so i will send her the link  don’t want to name her as she  wouldn’t appreciate it,

I just wondered if all the bloggers out there could get this out far and wide, some one can get it to Tesco and possibly  each store could  make a similar donation to  the same charity…..Just think of the positive PR in that for Tesco

Should it always be about price, or should stores know their limits

 

We know that  every one who ever goes within a mile of the internet has to have a PC or MAC at home, with a laptop or notebook out with them, and a tablet or smart phone for those awkward moments when they don’t  have  any other choice…. that’s just the way it is now, and its fine.  My comment is simply  this…….. Should you  go to a food shop for food , a clothes shop for clothes and somewhere like curry’s for electrical products. or are we happy to have superstores that go for global domination. is it too late to reverse the trend
