Discount supermarkets aren’t just for people on low incomes. Since the recession of the late 2000s, more and more people who like to think of themselves as being from a middle class background have been eschewing the big supermarkets in favour of their low-cost European rivals, so much so that the established players are losing market share.
Budget supermarkets and their like have a very basic, but very successful business model; stack ‘em high, sell ‘em cheap. You won’t typically find lots of special BOGOF offers in these places. What you will find is cheap stock in high volume. This is all well and good, but sometime these types of outlets are not too fussy about how their stock is displayed. In fact, some of them, without naming any names, do little more than stack pallets out on the shop floor.
Not only does this not look too great, which doesn’t really matter in the great scheme of things, but it could also pose a risk of a customer being injured in an accident that was not their fault, a customer who might then go on to retain the services of a top 100% ‘no win, no fee’ personal injury law firm with a view to seeking Wellingborough accident at work compensation from the retailer in question.
Discount supermarket injuries and Wellingborough accident at work compensation
It’s time for your weekly big shop, so you jump into your car and head on over to your local discount supermarket. You can’t get all the groceries you need there, but go on to fill in the gaps at one of the more established retailers later. This is a savvy move that saves you a good few quid every week. Money that can be better spent on other things.
When you arrive at your budget supermarket of choice, you grab a trolley from outside, depositing £1 as a deposit as you do so. You make your way to the fruit and veg section, where there are always a few good offers, with thoughts of Wellingborough accident at work compensation very far from your mind indeed.
You see that carrots are available at a good price, so go to grab yourself a pack from a stack of boxes that are almost as high as the top of your head. As you do so, the boxes fall on top of you, knocking you to the ground and causing you a few very nasty injuries that require hospital treatment.
