A Tesco customer was left fuming after they said Tesco had twice added a charity donation to her bill without asking.

Posting on social media, the woman told of her experience at Tesco Extra in Bidston Moss yesterday, when on two occasions her bill had unknowingly been rounded up.

I wouldn't trust Tesco to give the money to the charities after the accounting scandal.

Every time this round up and donate thing is done the company get bad press and social media coverage from people claiming nobody asked me it was just rounded up, and the usual Tesco make millions of pounds yet went me to donate money small but vocal minority, the basic idea is well intentioned and it does raise a fair amount, but with the usual negative stories and the abuse some unfortunate staff get when asking customers you have to wonder if going back to someone at the front of store with a bucket and maybe a card reader to collect donations might be better.

However, the man - Tony Ward from Valley, in Wales - had his shopping trip cut short by security who stopped him and ask him to leave the store immediately.

They told him that since the inflatable costume hides his identity, it was virtually the same as walking around the store in a balaclava or with a hood up, reports NorthWalesLive.

Not to mention the hijab, niqab and burka or covid19 mask and sunglasses.

At these times of uncertainty we could issue customers name badges, may help with ID and track & trace.

When I was told there was a dinosaur in a store I assumed it was somebody from the board of directors   :D

Club card and payment card usage could be used to help track and trace.  Those customers who use neither will often be the sort who will avoid any system of being tracked anyway though I admit I sometimes nip in to the local Express to buy a paper with cash and don't have my Club card with me.

Ocado has moved to within 10% of the stock market valuation of Tesco, the UK’s biggest retailer, after a share price surge linked to the online specialist’s new tie-up with Marks & Spencer boosted its market value to a record £19.5bn.

All 124 staff – or 'partners' as they're known across the company – at the smaller three shops are at risk of redundancy, while the 140 staff members at Wolverhampton Waitrose, based off Penn Road, will transfer to Tesco.

124 or 140 not sure who will be the lucky ones  :question:
