On 2.8.19 I shopped at the Key Food Store located at 1233 Nepperhan Ave., Yonkers NY 10703. When I checked out, the cashier named Andrea, said that my transaction did not go through. I had to reinsert my Visa debit card again to be processed. I went on line to check my banking account & found that I was charged $70.08 twice, once on 2.8.19 & again on 2.11.!9. I called the store & was advised that I would be credited on my account within 3 days. I checked my account again but both charges were still on. I called a second time & was told that I had to go back to the store to see the manager. On 2.15.19 I went back to the store to speak to the manager who was very rude & had no interest in hrelping me. His response to me when I inquired why he was not able to take care of this, especially since I had to make as special trip to the store was “call corporate”. He had an attitude & could care less to help me he had no intent to be bothered & walked away. I would have to say he certainly should not be employed by you, especially in a manager, or any other position with his attitude.

I will never shop in one of your stores again.

I would appreciate a response from you.

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to express my concerns. Allow me to begin this email by explaining this is NOT a complaint regarding prices or any product. This is a concern regarding customer service and communication.

On Sunday, 11/11/2018 at 12:48 pm I was doing my routine grocery shopping at Key Food #564. A Pecan Pie had been labeled with an on sale sticker for $3.99. There were several other boxes with the same sticker (roughly 12, a whole section). Once I am at the cash register checking out, the pie rings up standard price $7.99. The cashier calls for a price check and shortly after, NATALIE, the Deli manager arrives to the front. Natalie is clearly upset and begins to aggressively explain to me that The Pecan Pies are not on sale. Please note, she is yelling at me from the back of the cashiers line. In an effort to communicate, hoping to avoid confusion for other customers, I explain to Natalie that several pies have been marked with the sticker. This is where things became offensive. Natalie raises her voice and says “NO THERE ARE NOT! WHY DON’T YOU COME SHOW ME!”. I quietly proceed to pay for my groceries and ask the cashier if I may speak to Natalie.

Once I arrive to the deli section, Natalie is removing all stickers from said Pecan Pies. I approach Natalie respectfully looking to point out the miscommunication. At this time, NATALIE accuses me of switching the stickers. NATALIE calls me a liar when I deny. NATALIE is causing a scene in front of the deli department.

I proceed to speak with the co-manager on duty Bobby. Bobby was empathetic and cordial. Bobby explained to me that this has been a re-occurring issue (people switching the stickers). I understood. But as I explained at the beginning of this email, this is not about the product or price. I was appalled and sincerely embarrassed to have a person in a leadership position scolding me like a child in the middle of a crowded supermarket. And above all, to be called a Liar, while simply trying to avoid confusion for the next customer.

I sincerely hope employees like NATALIE, are not chosen to lead a department based on their communication skills. Perhaps NATALIE could benefit from some customer service training such as Conflict and Resolution.

Thank you again for taking the time to hear my concern. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out.

– Elias

Beacon, New York

Dear Key Food representattive.

Your store on Main Street in Beacon New York 12508 is filthy, in disrepair and the attending manager on Sunday October 14 (late afternoon) was entertaining family and friends during store hours.

The electric door(s) were broken, cashiers seems confused at check out and managers families children were using the store as a play ground. My shopping experience on Sunday, October 14 was the first and last. The store is a third world open air market that will incur health citations soon.

The Beacon location needs immediate, comprehensive attention.

Thank you,
Jon Cost

Hello. I’ve lived down the street from Key Food in Oakland Gardens for about 6 years. Unfortunately I don’t have a car and have to go to this grocery store or I would never shop there ever. The workers there are terrible!! You have to wait 30 mins for the deli even with 3 people back there and only 4 people in line. They don’t care about their jobs, start cleaning and wrapping up the the slicers 3 hours before the store even closes. People have come in and want kosher meats and can’t get them cut because there’s no kosher slicer after 5pm. It’s already cleaned and wrapped. They just walk around at snails pace and talk and don’t do a thing. Plus if you ask for a 1/4 lb they don’t know what that is and give you 2lbs. Sorry, it’s a little over. The meat in the back I’ve bought and tried to eat the next day and smelled so bad and was bad a day after buying. The cashiers are too busy texting and talking to work. They’re more worried about a hot date that night than taking care of guests. The managers are a joke. They yell at guests in front of every other guest if they don’t agree with something. I bought a yogurt yesterday and I usually check dates but was in a hurry and got home and shocker it had a Jun 7th expiration date!!! I could seriously go on and on. Someone really needs to go in there and see what’s going on because it’s apparent that nobody has in a while.
