Today I found out that internet shopping has an advantage I had not forseen.
Out shopping for a simple item , 150gm of dried sage (the average tub you find in tesco is about 10gm).
Ramsgate, Margate, and Broadstairs, tried, small shops big shops, butchers and just about anywhere else possible (though not Invicta Motors).
Comment was the same across the board, ' No they've stopped supplying the big jars, you can only get the small ones'.
I noticed the name of one of the suppliers on the small jar, so contacted them on the trusty 'Dell'
Reply came within minutes,' yes we still do the large jars, we will send you one , if you buy three you can have them postage free'. (price for 150 gm, twice the price of the 10gm tub. )
My point is, why do our shop assistants use the 'Easy' excuse, 'They've stopped doing them' and not ask someone further up the 'ladder'?
