Sounds crazy to me, they could have handled it better & said let's get you some out of the back.

Maybe they thought he was buying cheap goods to sell at a higher price in his corner shop.

I guess it would have been better if he'd spoken to the store manager first, and asked if he could buy the stuff straight from the stock room, instead of clearing the shelves.
All supermarkets have limits on how much/many of any item you can buy - seems reasonable enough to me.

I see people clearly stocking their trolleys with stuff for corner shops. Stores sometimes place limits on the number of bargain items one can buy.
How was he going to transport it all to Syria I wonder.

Reminds me of Candice-Marie picking pebbles up off the beach in Mike Leigh's play 'Nuts in May'.

Keith,her partner,told her not to do that as there wouldn't be any left for anyone else!!!
He may have thought he was doing well but didnt really stop to think about the impact on others. Shoppers in Aldi are not rich they need the bargains too, if he has taken them then there wont be any. Saying they are lazy and dont want to stock shelves is rather ignorant, does he think there is unlimited supplies 'out back' in fact these days there is very little out back.

Why didnt he approach the Manager in the first place with his intentions so it could be planned?
A number of supermarkets restrict the quantity of particularly "bargain-priced" stuff...though they usually have a sign to that effect eg: limited to five per customer.

asda never seem to say anything when you fill up your trolley with one product , i have been and bought stacks of tinned cat food for the local cat shelter when i was working and nowt said
He could always send a cheque over for £100 to one of the aid agencies who can then arrange for food to be given out- it'll save on the huge transportation costs
£150 worth of tinned goods is a bit excessive.IMO
I don't know how he was planning on transporting all this,if that was what he was genuinely doing,but I guess he felt if he was doing it himself overhead costs which aid agencies suffer would be avoided and the true cost of all the food would actually get there!
A friend of mine would go to Tesco once a month and buy 30 tins of new potatoes, 30 tins of peas & carrots and 30 tins of stew.

Until the Manager in Tesco saw him and told he wasn't allowed to. Mark swapped his allegiance to Sainsbury after that.

Anyone know for sure that he doesn't run a Shop?
It may have been advisable to go to a cash and carry where costs are low and the whole idea of sales is to buy in bulk.
If I took it into my head to send food to a troubled area I would be looking at packets....dried food etc....can't think how I'd get those there though, let alone heavy tinned foods...
Probably a load of nonsense in my opinion. I wouldn't be surprised if the store were already aware of his shopping habits

factor-fiction > How was he going to transport it all to Syria I wonder.

factor you buy the stuff and phone up the collection centre and a van comes round collects the donated food

this then goes to a large storage warehouse where volunteers sort it all out and load it onto pallets

usually they have an arrangement with some haulage companies that will transport it overland
