In the bag

    We’ve noticed a little trick quite a few customers are trying on at the moment, hoping to get a free carrier bag. They wait until you’ve wrung up the sale and they have paid by card then they ask for a carrier bag and claim they can only pay the 5p charge with a separate card payment. I’ve started asking customers if there’s anything else the need just before I put the card through, hoping for them to say, “Oh yes and a bag,” but even then I’m still getting caught out from time to time. You just wonder what lengths some people will go to save five pence!
