A couple of new Home Bargains shops have opened in my locality. I went in and found some great bargains - half the price I would pay in supermarkets. Whitworths dates, raisins and other dried fruit ir 79p, instead of about £1.70. I bought some more dates there yesterday and they were horrible - August 2014 use by date, so shoud be fresh, dark and sticky. They were pale and like wood. I phoned the Customer Careline and they knew immediately this batch had been sold to Home Bargains as I started reading the number out. It didn't seem to come as a surprise.
They apologised and will send me some vouchers. I was left wondering whether they offload batches that aren't up to standard to the bargain shops, and that's why they're so cheap. Other stuff I've had has been fine, especially tinned food.
Anyone got any inside information on this sort of thing?
