Have you ever popped down to the shop in your dressing gown? It could be banned if one shopper has his way.
A Tesco customer was so outraged to see two women shopping in their pyjamas that he took a photo and posted it with a complaint online.
The women were spotted on the confectionary aisle wearing nightwear, slippers and dressing gowns. One man found the sight “bloody disgusting” and called on Tesco to have such people banned.
Posting on Facebook, he said “Dear Tesco, please can you put a rule in place that people like this will not be served in your stores. It’s bloody disgusting.”
“This was at 7pm last night at your Tesco Salford store and I have seen other people dressed similar on a regular basis. I mean who doesn’t have the time to get changed into clothes to go shopping?”
Such comments have been made about other shops before, but it was Tesco’s response that gathered attention to this particular post.
“Many of our customers have told us that they feel uncomfortable when they see other shoppers wearing unsuitable clothing in our stores and we do try to find a balance that everyone is happy with,” a company spokesperson said.
“Although we don’t have a formal dress code in our stores, we rely on our Management Team to use their discretion and common sense.”
Many people have entered the conversation to say that the women are fully-clothed and not offending anyone, while others branded them as lazy.
The man who posted the status has faced backlash for taking photos of the women and cannot understand why he was so bothered by the event.
