However if that’s not possible maybe consider only going shopping with your wife lol

 

Homophobic muchly, methinks.

 

Not everybody is an heterosexual male with a prostitute an ex-bar girl in tow.

 

And some people are even women who don't have wives!

I do not store shop much but have found Tops delivery to be much more reliable for having advertised stock than Lotus delivery and much better at being on time here in Bangkok.  On many items I buy the Tops price is also better lately.  Agree Tops stores I have used are more 7/11 than supermarket shopping experience.

I bought macaroni and cheese once there and later found out it was a year past due.

they gave you the in-house mature cheddar cheese variety... it's usually more expensive than the standard version so a win for you... 🧀

Wouldn't that be 'a year pasta due'?

(sorry!)

Are you sure it was the past due date?  Sometimes hard to know if production or 'best by' and dates can be in various forms making it even harder.  But in any case item like that should be good long after expiration date.  That is fallout bunker food.

Canned goods and shelf-stable foods like boxed macaroni-and-cheese have greater latitude than their perishable cousins. Unopened, they can be eaten a year or two past their expiration dates, although there have been more extreme examples.

Tops is like almost every other Thai managed company. 

 

Beststrategy in Thailand is to simply eat less and transact less. Most stuff on sale is unhealthy junk anyway. 

Silly generalization.  If you have a problem be specific.

I have 3 problems with Tops.  1.  The stuff in the freezers has all been re frozen.  You can tell by the ice in the bags (thaw and then freeze again).  All the freezers all the products must turn the temp down at some point to save money.  2.  Slicer in deli never sharpened so can't slice thin.  My wife won't let me show them how to sharpen it.  3.  All the bakery products dry as a result of over baking.

 

I'd send an email if anyone has the man in charge in Thailand's email address.

I go to Tops Chidlom the clientele of which includes more foreigners than other Tops locations.  So, they have a good variety of the imported items that I am looking for.  I think they are an excellent store.  Deliveries are free for orders over ฿1500 and always on time without ever losing anything.  The cashier is always willing to check the wad of coupons I hand her, which I am not.  

 

The bakery is especially good for euro-style breads.  I never buy frozen food.  I pay by US credit card and they always charge me in THB without my having to insist.

That must be buying in store - if you use website order/delivery is free at 888 baht normally - and sometimes free for any.

To be specific, poorly run.

Silly issues you list. If you don't like shopping there, shop elsewhere.

Uh, those people are giving their mobile 'phone number - not their membership card number.  Hardly difficult to remember.

But difficult for the cashier to get right, sometimes they take 4 goes, even when the Mrs is giving them the digits. Big C is worse, at least TOPS have a number pad that you can put the numbers in for yourself.
