A trip to GIANT~

Hypermarkets in Malaysia are spreading around the sweet potato and the disfigured dog so rapidly as I sometimes really wonder can they actually have enough customers for it...
If they having enough of customers & people are just going to hypermarkets... The what's gonna happen to old timer grocery shops?

Teh very first hypermarket in Malaysia, Makro... When it jsut came to Malaysia.. it was just a big distributor or supplier when most of the stuff are sold in bulk ONLY... & the very very very best thing bout Makro is... NO KIDS BELOW 12 YEARS ARE ALLOWED...
Don't get me wrong... I don't hate kids...
It's just most parents they don't really control their kid if you know what i mean....
Don't really wanna talk bout kids now... so let me continue...

after sometimes... the very first Carrefour came to Subang Jaya and they actually let kids to go in... & their stuff also smaller in bulk and also individual stuff... & so came Giant in USJ, Tesco... MYDIN~

All of them would keep competing to go low low low low low low......
Groceries shop also gone gone gone gone gone.....
Now even Jusco is trying to fight against them....
Japanese came too late i guess~ haha

But my recent visit to Giant gave me a headache & I'm the person that won't use time to exchaneg for money.... Instead the other way round....

well... the story is like this....
An advertisement came to my place & it really gave a lower price than others...
As i went there... jumble up the shopping cart... came to the cashier...

WOW! WTF! damn crowded ler!!! Long queue...

But then hor.... as i turned my head to the other side...

Ok.................. Those 2 pictures were taken within 1 minute...
Need less to state to the obvious when tesco is introducing 'Queue Buster' and Giant is doing 'Cut cost & fuck the customers'
As you can see all the lines are too long for just to queue in a straight lines...

The other side of the cashiers are all closed and this dude actually came infront to be inside the picture~ Smile~ Price SLASH!!!

Example of the cheapest item found between hypermarkets... MILK!
Giant selling RM3.10 when every other places selling RM3.50
SO these aunties in front of me decided to clear their stocks....
As i was so bored... I counted they took 14 in total~ here~

CONCLUSION
I actually waited almost 30 minutes for until i have my chance of paying my groceries....
Is that really worth while for saving lets say... ermm... RM5 for going GIANT instead of other hypermarket?

You tell me~

I'll definitely won't go back to GIANT~

Lol, don't know if it's the Giant in Melaka (can't tell from da pics...all supermarkets seem to look the same) but the ONE time I went there almost one year ago, encountered exactly the same problem. The line even looked the same. But it's good business practice by them, you get bored waiting in line and start looking around at more things to buy!

Since this is the policy from every Giant.. There's nothing against me from saying this is also Melaka branch~ hahaha
