Aisles obstructed in stores

I am disappointed by Wellcome supermarket managers, who seem to think it is appropriate when filling shelves in their stores, to also fill the aisles with produce.

In one Wellcome store in Kennedy Town, at the junction of Victoria Road and Belcher Street, I and my nine-month-old son found ourselves trapped amongst piles of goods which were for sale. And this was not just produce which was waiting to be unpacked to go on the shelves.

I would like to ask Wellcome management if by obstructing the aisles, it is still obeying all the Buildings Department codes relating to barrier-free access and emergency exits? I would have voiced my complaint directly to the store via its Web site, but that is trying so hard to sell me things, that it does not have the facility for communication in the other direction.

I urge Wellcome to get its stores in order.
