    This Policy is not just for Independent, it’s for Loblaws too and all of the stores owned by Loblaws. I have a relative who works at Loblaws and their policy has change, exactly the same.

    I tried to by the Neilsons milk that was on sale at my independent grocers yesterday in Ottawa where I have been shopping for almost 20 years and was told in not such a nice way that “we don’t take internet coupons”. I know that I have used them there before but apparently not any more 🙁 I said okay then well thanks but no thanks, I will go to Loblaws. She seemed rather shocked and pissed off that I did not wish to pay full price for the milk that I would get for free at Loblaws who will take the printed coupon.

    I went to YIG the other day and wanted to use the b1g1 bulls eye coupon. it says one item per purchase and 3 seperate cashiers thought that meant 1 per transaction, They let me buy the items but it took like 10 minutes in line because they said they had to ring them all in on seperate transactions. I am definately printing this off so I can show them if I ever have a problem like that again.

    Our Independent told my husband that they can’t accept manufacturer’s coupons because one of their cashiers accidentally took one that was for Mexico once. Our coupon clearly stated it was for Canada only and completely complied with the guidelines. Is it really our fault that their staff didn’t read someone else’s coupon? Anyway, we don’t shop there anymore.
