Re: “Did Berkeley Bowl Ban Reporter for Life?

Yes, its a fact Berkeley Bowl has become a factory of arrogance. It must come straight down from the owner who obviously thinks that because he has the most successful grocery store it gives him the right to ensure that people are treated with the top most disrespect and rude attitudes from the workers. Watch out for the cart pushers they will yell at you "we are closed" even if you are not intending to go in.

Shame on Glen Yasuda! Shame on the workers there! I have witnessed them!

May all their ears fall off !

Heres my story:

So its around 6:05PM and I am arriving to pick someone who is shopping there. I get out of the car and a guy yells "WE'RE CLOSED!" so I just ignore him as he was far enough away, he could have been yelling at someone else. So I walk across the parking lot and get almost to the front side walk and they guy yells directly at me "WE'RE CLOSED!!!" so I replay "THANKS FOR TELLING ME THAT,.. GLAD TO KNOW IT" and then he says "THEY'RE NOT GOING TO LET YOU IN!!!" in such a rude obnoxious way I had to retort "IM NOT TRYING TO GET IN THANK YOU!" than he says "YOU DONT HAVE TO GIVE ME THAT ATTITUDE" . haha .... HE was the one with the attitude.

okay thats fine , dont let one bad apple ruin the whole Berkeley Bowl experience right ? Well, not so fast. I get closer to the door and the ugly fat lady yells in my direction "WE"RE CLOSED" . Then the person who I was trying to pick up came out so we started to head back to the car when the ugly lady starts yelling at some people in their car "AND YOU ARE NOT WELCOME TO EVER COME BACK TO BERKELEY BOWL AGAIN!!!!"

God! Are these people kidding? Argent, Rude, Obnoxious, Horrible, Awful!

If you can avoid this place DO IT! I have had bad experiences here before. Once an old checker whom i've seen working there for the last 20 years (literally, I've been going here since 1987) gave me such attitude, it would make you sick. Hey I know all about Berkeley Bowl, I love the selection, but it seems to be getting worse. Maybe taking the extra drive to that one store on Marin in North Berkeley maybe worth it, they also have a nice selection of veggies.
