Fred Meyers- All Of Them - Ride on Carts and Lack of Maintenance
The Ride Around Carts for Walking Challenged Shoppers - Complaint
ALBANY, OREGON -- I have gone into Fred Meyers stores from Eugene, Springfield, Albany, Corvallis and the carts in the stores seam to not have maintenance done to them. Wheels have a flat spot on them which makes them bumpy and the batteries to go died faster. There are holes in the control handle area so a person can stick a finger in them. Batteries are died because the cart staff is not making share the carts are plugged in.
I rode one the other day that went from stop to fast and no happy in between spot and a flat spot on the tire and when I was done shopping I felt sea sick. I spend $100.00 in your store when I go there but if this keeps up I will be going to Walmart where they are keeping their carts up for their shoppers. Please get a six month program to check these cars out for if I can't get around in your store I will have to go somewhere else. I am not the only one who has said this.
I do love to shop at your store but my life has changed as to how I get around. I know that the carts are a convenience for us to use but you did put them there for us to use and all I ask please keep up on changing out bearings, wheels, electric cords that are fraid, died batteries or those that don't hold a charge. Thank You
