£500 chops? It ASDA be er­ror

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A WOMAN got a shock when a su­per­mar­ket charged her more than £500 for TWO pork chops.

She’d gone through the self-ser­vice check­out at ASDA and en­tered her card de­tails be­fore she no­ticed the er­ror, hav­ing left her glasses at home.

Check­ing the re­ceipt later she saw the chops showed up as ‘meat re­duced – £527.22’.

Staff cor­rected the trans­ac­tion but warned the 57-year-old mum the money would not be re­funded into her bank for two work­ing days.

The man­ager of the store in Poole, Dorset, gave her a £5 gift card.

No one from Asda was avail­able for com­ment.
