A Newry supermarket has opened a new lane for women who can’t seem to locate their purse.
The town’s Tesco store responded to customer feedback that some women shoppers were taking too long to find their purse.
Manager Brendan Murphy told Newry Spud:
“We had a lot of complaints about our female shoppers who would take a year and a half to pack their bags and then spend another 6 months trying to find their purse. These women carry handbags the size of suitcases where they store everything from wet wipes to unopened gas bills.
We thought we’d open a new lane specifically for them so that they won’t feel pressurised by other shoppers who would usually stand around huffing and puffing.”
Visitors to the store welcomed the news. Bricklayer Peader O’Phile said:
“Yeah. Whatever. I only came in for a sandwich. Do you know where the Tayto Cheese and Onion is mate?”
