I work in a shop that sells among other things, parasols, gazebo's, paddling pools & fans. I'm sick of people being so rude as all are sold out. It is not my fault there is a heatwave, it really is not my fault! We normally have loads of stock left over at the end of the season because of crap summers. Please bear in mind, this 'summer' stock came in from china in feb/march & that is it for the season. I understand the frustration, i really do. I just don't deserve to be spoken to in the way i have been for the past week because britain is experiencing a heatwave for once! I can feedback til the cows come home, but considering they are probably already planning 2015 stock, it won't be listened to!
Nobody could have prepared for this heatwave, clothes that we usually have tons of left over at the end of the summer are literally flying out the doors right now.
A woman shouted at me earlier as all our unlined linen dresses that were in the sale have all sold out, and she didn't want to pay full price for one as she's always managed to come in every summer and get one at sale price. Well yes, but its not always this hot every summer!!
We don't normally sell shorts as in the past they have never sold well at all, but this year we did have a small range of shorts come in, which because of the heat have sold very quickly! Another lady was moaning at me because we didn't have her size left, the thing if we always had scorching hot summers then yes the company would order more shorts etc in but how can they predict the weather forecast!
