I had to do a bit of shopping for Hubby this afternoon, and could not believe how depleted the stock was on the shelf.
You could understand if it was food I was after, but no, this was a simple over the counter (OTC) medicine which has been around for years.
The pharmacist on duty was also depleted in her customer care skills, being one of the most unhelpful individuals I have ever come across.
She told me Hubby would have to go to the doctor or nurse to get a prescription as that was all she had, and that the OTC I was after was no longer produced.
I was not impressed, and will never go into that particular pharmacy again.
Luckily, there is another here so I went there, asking the girl behind the counter to save my sanity when she asked how she could help me.
I told her what I was looking for and what I’d been told. She looked baffled.
‘That’s rubbish,’ she said. ‘We have loads and it’s easy enough to order.’
I am wondering now if the first pharmacy is deliberately depleting their stock reserves to save money or in the hope of selling something more expensive. The way this proprietor is going, she’ll have more than depleted stock though………….. she’ll have no customers!
