“Just been in to your Walton Vale Store, Liverpool. I stood almost in tears watching one of your shop assistants helping an older man; so much care and compassion, going through his shopping list with him, carrying his bags, getting him a stool to sit on when he needed a rest then helping him to count his money. What a credit to your company this man is -- well done!”

Home Bargains responded with: “This is wonderful! It's the kind of customer service we love to see in our stores! Thanks for posting this - we'll pass this on to the area manager to praise the sales assistant.”
