BriarPatch takes time to help a customer

On March 3, at 3:10 in the afternoon, I lost my wallet in the parking lot of a chain grocery store in the Glenbrook Basin. I did not realize this occurred until 7:45 that evening when an employee of BriarPatch phoned me. He told me that a good Samaritan found my wallet. I was confused because I know I did not shop at BriarPatch on that day.

The BriarPatch employee was very kind and gave me the good Samaritan’s telephone number. I called her immediately, we met and she gave me my wallet back. She said she had found it in the parking lot. She proceeded to tell me that when she brought my wallet into the grocery store and told an employee there that I was a customer and that I should be called, they did nothing! They told her there was nothing they could do.

The good Samaritan looked through my wallet and found a BriarPatch card. Thank you, BriarPatch! In my opinion, this is another example of how a “community market” takes the time to help its customer and the “Big Box” chain markets could not be bothered! Shame on you!
