If I could give no stars I would.
This review concerns the Tooloa street South Gladstone QLD Foodworks. Since regularly buying from the South Gladstone Tooloa street store we have returned or thrown out quite a few things. Bacon, ham corned beef all returned. We have also bought stale bread, stale ice cream cones. Stale ready made sandwiches. Cold bacon and egg rolls. Then theres the milk returned on several occasions due to being tainted and the yuk taste from having too much light on it giving it the "sunlight flavour" more recognisable if used for cappuccinos. My wife return...ed 2 litres a few days back. The owner whinged there was 200ml missing. He replaced the milk whinging it was still in date by 2 days. The following day my wife went to by frozen fish for tea. Both owners of the shop abused my wife infront of other customers while she was trying to withdraw cash the Sam the male rude owner checked the expiry date and abused her again. On the same day another manager from another shop in the complex sent her children to foodworks to buy lollies. The children were searched and forced to empty pockets by the owners. The children didnt steal anything. The owners are rude. The food is stale, as is the atmosphere as when you get to the counter your greeted by all the thieves photos plastered up everywhere. Most of those thieves have never been charged yet they can bully chikdren into emptying their pockets. My wife and I actually helped them hold a thief until police arrived, more fool us. These are the same people who hit the news for increasing the cost of toilet paper three fold during the beginning lock down of covid. Gladstone south deserves much better. A glance at Facebook shows others have returned goods too, mouldy cheese. Each time off sliced meat was returned the female owner said she couldnt smell it. If its slimy, its off. Im so disgusted at their attitude. They now lose 200 a fortnight from my family.
Foodworks Woodridge.. Horrible, Horrible, Horrible!
This was the single most awful shopping experience I have ever had. Firstly, no bakery section.. then as I was trying to shop down these incredibly narrow aisles, stock trolleys were blocking the shelves & staff, all of which were teenagers kept making me move out of the way to constantly move MORE stock trolleys. This happened to me SIX TIMES! Went to get chips.. they were all out of date.. asked a staff member to check if they had more.. he wouldn't.. plus he didn't remove the out of stock off the shelf. Went to get dip.. AGAIN, out of da...te. Called the manager.. a teenager rocks up.. makes me walk with him to the chip aisle when he had no intention of looking for more stock. Went to checkout.. it states they accept all major credit cards, yet I was told I couldn't use American Express. Got charged for cucumbers TWICE when one lot were zucchinis. Tried to get a refund.. the manager STILL didn't know what he was doing; asking me what I wanted. I asked what he did know & he said he only started one week prior.. yet he was a teenager in charge of the entire store! He then threw the bag of zucchinis at me & called them "avocados".. (like who thinks a zucchini is an avocado?) .. THEN he refused to give me back my receipt. I will never, EVER shop in this store again.
Kuranda Foodworks -Little treasure shop
Kuranda Foodworks is a little treasure box. They have improved so much and offer a great variety of local products. Its Quality not Quantity. Especially in this special time, they try hard to keep the shelfs packed.
Full of maggot in unopened rice package
Bought packet of rice from roxburgh park food works took it home without checking inside. Expected to be as fresh as it can be. Full of maggots and returned today and they ignored me didn't offer to replace or refund. Don't go and buy full of maggot yourselves.
Don't buy from FoodWorks
Deer Park store full halal.
You'll find that they renovated the store nicely but prices are high. Most products are sourced from Indonesian and the store is fully Halal. You can not buy any pork products. No bacon or ham etc. How can't you buy these products from a supermarket in Australia? They can't be serious.
Great place to to Shop at and nice and cheap and friendly
Great place to shop at and nice and cheap and friendly staff and helpful I'm a local in Kapunda a small town and cheap and a bit expensive but still Shop there.
Balwyn North Store
Have been shopping here for 8 years for convenience to my home.
I find the staff here always happy and smiling (unlike previous owners) and very helpful, willing to carry your goods to the car or fulfill any request. They have good bargains too.
I look forward to going to shop there as I know it will be a pleasant experience and I always leave smiling.
Hardly any stock on shelves, fridge and freezers
I asked staff why so empty and I was told they were waiting for a load. By the looks of things they have been waiting for years, what a joke
Basil and Penne Past Salad Review - Valley Foodworks
I'm flabbergasted at how amazing the basil and penne pasta salad is at the Fortitude Valley FoodWorks! Its a taste sensation. Mix it into your favourite salad from their salad bar and your onto your way to heaven. THE MASTER PASTA - Who says you can't make friends with salad , I did! :)
I bought a small jar of Vegemite in February when we were holidaying in Inverloch we did not open the jar until a week later in Melbourne and found it tasted awful.
Reason being it was more than twelve months out of date!
Impressed with more stock
So glad there is more stock at the Bradbury, now it has new owners, please keep the same staff as we have got to know them and they know us ,they are always friendly
Walking through the horrible and shockingly depleated stock aisles of Bradbury Foodworks is akin to wandering through a ghost town. The only thing missing are the tumble weeds ! - but these will come as locals (including myself) travel to other convenient and properly stocked shopping alternatives in the area.
Where is all the stock
Cant run a store this way no stock shelves and fridges empty stopped shopping there until they can keep shelves stocked its depressing walking through there its a shame cause the staff are allways happy and polite foodworks get your act together or sell to someone who can.
Local food works is bradbury nsw one of the worst stores ever they never have any stock many empty shelves even isles this has been going on for 2 years now it looks like the end of the word is coming how can foodworks let this happen for so long they are affecting business
around them and destroying our shopping centre I would be ashamed to associate my brand-name with this store. Foodworks you are a joke.
Love this store !
Went into this Lismore Foodworks last week and what a lovely surprise to be greeted with a smile and happy staff. Good fresh produce brought in daily from local farmers and some great specials to be had ! I’ll be a regular from now on .. love it !
The store in Bangalow is disgusting and a blot on the town.
Store is filthy, the trolley's are never ever have been cleaned, there are no use by dates or known by the staff on the Deli section.
Outside the Store has never been cleaned.
The Store is the talk of the Town and people can't wait until a opposition opens up.
I would think that someone from Foodworks would do inspection's of Stores that are carrying their brand.
I have found Foodworks Sunbury to be a really great place to shop. The staff are very friendly and ready to have a chat.
The main reason I shop there is because they have a great range of G.F. products. Usually find what I am after. Saving me a lot of wear and tear on the old legs.
The shops are disgusting, always dirty.
Staff/management are horrible.
Food is always out of date.
Fruit and vegetables are always rotten.
Not happy at all.
Brilliant help for a difficult situation
The wonderful staff at Foodworks Diggers Rest went above & beyond with their service.I made a phone request for them to hold a product for me although I am not a regular customer. They had taken the product off the shelf & stored it in the cool room until I arrived. They had no way of knowing if I was genuine until I arrived at the store,pretty cool & trusting in their assistance,such a refreshing level of service should be commended.
Would not recommend
Dallas Foodworks fridges and freezers aren’t even cold, the products in the fridge area are all warm and they go out of date because they’re not at the right temperature, and the ice cream isn’t even frozen properly, it’s stale.
