I've had it. I went to this health food store because they are close to my house. Every time I leave with my products in hand, I'm shaking my head in disbelief. Today took the cake...check this out:
Q: What's the difference between the product with Glucosamine and the one with Glucosamine & Chondroitin?
A: The other one has Chondroitin.
Q: Is that important?
Then this heady exchange occured:
Q: Why would I choose a protein supplement with whey versus one with soy or rice?
A: Well, one has soy which comes from soy, the other comes from rice.
Q: (proceeding with disbelief...) So why would someone choose soy over whey?
A: We get a lot of Soy People in here.
Q: (still in disbelief...) So, why do they choose to be "Soy" People?
A: (laughing) I dunno!
I won't waste your time with more accounts of their stupidity. I was then misinformed on the basics of meal replacements, vegetable versus shellfish sources, and intestinal gas.
I have 9 check marks on my $100 Purchase Club card. I need only spend another $100 to get another $100 free. It may not be worth it.
Clearly the manager has a problem firing "nice" people and replacing them with competent staff. This is rediculous!!
P.S. Also, make sure you check the expiration dates of the products before you buy...
