‘I am so sick and tired of being disrespected by Coles staff, this is a constant battle with the management and trolley handlers of Coles,’ the woman wrote online
‘I am so sick and tired of being disrespected by Coles staff, this is a constant battle with the management and trolley handlers of Coles,’ the woman wrote online, adding she shops at the South Hedland store.
‘Every time I complain, the manager ‘PROMISES’ it will never happen again. What a joke. This has been happening for over five years and nothing has changed.’
She added a scathing assumption stating: ‘It is obvious that Coles do not care about disabled people.’
On the woman’s Facebook profile she is open that she lives with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome – a disorder that impacts skin and joints, leaving the person in pain.
On Facebook other customers were in disbelief and shared a comment on the matter.
‘That’s atrocious behaviour from the manager, I hope corporate deal with them appropriately,’ one person wrote.
Another said: ‘Poor form indeed, don’t they have trolley bays?’
A Coles representative saw the woman’s post and said action will be taken.
‘We are disappointed to hear about your experience and we are very sorry for the inconvenience,’ the comment read.
‘We’ve now passed this info onto our Store Manager and Regional Manager to follow up with the team, and remind them of our courtesy expectations. We trust that you’ll notice an improvement moving forward.’
