KZ Supermarket on TV Street

Post by Assade »

During my last four visits to KZ the prices on the shelves for the goods I was buying were not the same when I got to the checkout. The prices had gone up! Each time I was told that the shelves had not been updated with the correct price!

We popped in there last week whilst we were in Luxor and the smell as you walked in was awful ! Didn't buy anything so didn't notice the pricing but the smell put me off anyway :lol:

The smell was probably the defrosting food, waiting to go into the freezers! We have seen defrosting chicken in pools of blood as well as fish.

I never buy anything chilled or frozen there, not when I can go to 40 & find everything nicely frozen. I have commented on it but all I got was a shrug :x

I complained about the cheese when they first opened (this is the second warnings thread about them) :roll:

I was in there the other week and they said the same about the prices going up - so told them to cancel my purchases and I went to put the items back on the shelf - this is when I noticed that the price lables were in the wrong place eg tuna chunks with chilli, the lable underneath said 4.50le but on closer inspection that was for a smaller can of plain tuna - found the lable for chilli tuna about a foot away under the beans and this did show the price they tried to charge me at the till.

They swap the shelf contents around but not the prices I think. I noticed the Temmys cereal had a Kelloggs label underneath, luckily they didn't charge the 23.50LE though
