Disappointed Midnight Shopping at Tesco Ampang..

It was already 11.40pm when we arrived at Tesco Ampang on Friday’s night.. We were actually on the way back to Balakong from my parent’s house in Wangsa Maju.. Since Tesco was still opened, we stopped there for our monthly groceries shopping which we usually choose Carrefour for the activity.. At first, I’m kinda shocked when my husband told me Tesco is open up until 1.00am on every Friday and Saturday.. So, we thought that was a good decision to shop at Tesco on that night.. At least, we can save the next day for doing something else..

By looking at the brochure, I found that certain items were cheaper than Carrefour.. example F&N milk, 3-in-1 Nescafe, Nestle Ice-Cream etc.. But, to my surprise all the best-deal items are sold out.. Maybe they are not restocking it since it was already midnight.. But, I just can’t except the excuse if it was what they think… It was really make us disappointed, because we did not manage to catch all the things we need.. And, we ended up buying other things which are not in our list including baby basin and electric mosquitoes repellent.. hehe..

Other things that distract my view was dirty, slippery floor at frozen foods area and trolleys were everywhere.. It was hard for us to push our trolley as there were trolley filled up with stuffs blocking our way.. Definitely they have to do something, no need to wait until people complain about it… See, now I’m complaining.. :P

Picture 283Can you see the sampah on the floor?

Erm, we thought that would be the last time we ever go to Tesco for groceries shopping.. No more Tesco after this..

In UK where Tesco started, Tesco is a good place to shop, on the level with the mid-range supermarkets. They stock a good range of products, with cheap, a few moderate and a few high end in every category. I am from UK and lived there most of my life so I know.

Here in Malaysia it's totally different, Tesco is really quite cheap and nasty, certainly not as good as Carrefour or Jusco or even MyDin. All the products are not that cheap, but are really low quality. When I first moved to Malaysia I insisted we buy all our house stuff there. Within a few months many of the buckets, brooms etc were broken and we had to buy again from Carrefour or elsewhere. Tesco does draw in the crowds with a few cheap offers, especially nappies etc. But compare the prices on most products, and it's poor quality for moderate to high price.
