Just been to BB yesterday and as mention in some of post, guys this offers has its pros and cons, means you have to go with determined mind that i wanted to purchase certain items only ...otherwise you end up buying lots of unwanted stuff ...

This is great example of mass marketing scheme to lure the shoppers and clear out the inventory for BB but they should display the condition on their ads too .... which makes things more clear...

This is about
Big bazar Kandivali (West)
Entry in to the store from car Parking is very inconvenient for Seniors and those who have restrictions to use stairs due to heart problems. A walk way near the toilets should be made available to them.

Big Bazaar Exchange offer is Total vague!

I went to utilize the exchange offer and got coupons worth of Rs 650. When I went to utilize those coupons I realize I could just use them for a week after which they would expire and that too the coupons will be applicable for 10% or 25 % of total value. after shopping for 2000 bucks I was only able to use coupons worth of Rs250. And now the rest of 400 is wasted as I cannot purchase goods worth of Rs 4000 in the same week.

The whole gimmick of BB exchange is blown out of proportion and the customer stands to gain nothing out of it.

Will be extremely obliged if the company would apologize for the misleading advertisements carried across major newspapers for your "The Great Exchange Offer 18th Feb - 1st Apr". I have scanned the advertisement in today's The Telegraph (Saturday 31, 2012 Page 23) after returning from your outlet, and NOWHERE is it mentioned that Big Bazaar has stopped accepting the "old things" for exchange. I had even verified last Saturday at the Big Bazaar counter and they clearly mentioned that the offer is valid till April 1. Today when I visited the Big Bazaar of VIP Road, Kolkata, I was informed that the offer closed on March 25. WHY THEN HAVE YOU INSERTED A MISLEADING ADVERTISEMENT? Will you compensate for the effort spent in visiting your esteemed outlet only to be faced with some nonsense excuses. AND, NOBODY HAD AN EXPLANATION. Because there was none. Are you not taking your customers, their time and effort for granted? It's time you showed some RESPECT for your customers.
AND, I was not the only one harassed. But I doubt how many middle class, "attracted by schemes and offers" customers will actually find time from their daily grudge to even bother to say a word. So much for belonging to the 'much sought after middle class"!

I don't expect any action from an organization as irresponsible as yours. However, I wanted to make a point this one time.

Can you also teach your employees some basic manners? Or maybe you don't charge us enough. or maybe each of aspire to you live up to the tagline "Isse sasta kahin nahi." Somewhere in your 10-year journey, maybe you forgot the " aur achcha' part.

Thanks for bothering to read. And thanks for making me feel so frustrated after so many years of being your customer. Though it won't make any difference to you, I think I will return to my local grocery shop and rely on the markets to buy whatever I need. Thanks again.
