Tesco, Change Your Policy - IT SERVES NO PURPOSE
Tesco supermarket has told cashiers not to supply alcohol if they suspect an adult is buying the drink for an underage youth. Staff have been told to err on the side of caution when interpreting the policy, leading to cases of parents out shopping with their children being told to put alcohol back on the shelves. Tesco says it believes parents will support the policy and it would rather apologise where it has misjudged the situation than sell to underage drinkers. However parents who have been refused alcohol have described the rule as humiliating and daft.
