A Viewer Writes: Sams Club check out aisles deathtraps

Anyone been to Sam's lately? They reconfigured the store and instead of the nice wide check out - waiting line - aisle, they have now got you trapped into these narrow aisles where you are surrounded by rows of junk food. Who thought this was a smart idea? They are not 2 carts wide like the normal aisles. Such a ridiculous and unsafe configuration. The hazardous wall of pallets out front was bad enough, protruding into the traffic lane, forcing you to dodge oncoming traffic as you attempt to get into the store and trapping you between a wall of pallets and the building but now this? Who thinks up these hazardous plans and implements them? Even Walmart has cleaned up their entryways and made them safer and shorter, but not Sams, they are sticking with, what seems to be "putting our customers at risk" strategy.

Sams and the 2 Walmart’s here are the worst in the country, why couldn’t we have one like Berlin.

If you don’t feel comfortable, you can order online and pick up. I feel that they are doing an excellent job and think that some people aren’t happy no matter what is being done and just like to complain. Sorry. Try to stay positive, you may feel better.

Only fools shop there.

You pay an annual membership fee to be charged more for things that are in huge quantities than you can buy anywhere else for less in normal quantities.

I quit going there years ago. Last time I was in a Sam's club was 2009 and I haven't been back since. I waited over an hour in line with frozen foods on a hot July day.

They had only one register open and it was a Saturday. I made sure to let the manager know I was never going to shop there again. I also wrote the corporation a letter giving my name, address and phone number telling them about my experience.

All I got was a chained response from corporate stating they would contact the manager about it and he would also reach out to me.

Nothing happened and I have not been back since.
This was at the Sam's club in Salisbury.

The corporation today is nothing like it was back in the early days when Walmart offered a good value for the money and the Sam's choice products were good quality. The employees all got decent pay with quarterly success sharing bonuses.

Even Walmart is a painful experience to shop at and I only go there as a last resort.

They are also diligently working to eliminate cashiers in favor of self check outs. Food Lion the same!

I belong to Sam's club for over 30 years. They offer things like when you have a flat tire, if they can fix it.. it's free.. doesn't matter if you bought your tires from them.

It is just as described. Its awful. and no meat. Only meat they had was pork and lamb, no beef at all, very little fish. I was there Tues and noticed they moved everything around and the guy in-front of me commented on how much stuff was missing and how ridiculous the aisle were.

Problem is you can't find what you are looking for because its in that aisle and you cant get to it without crawling over people so that whole "social distancing" thing is a moot point.

Its screwed up and who ever thought of it was an idiot.

I have used the scan and go app. It's nice but you still stand in line as you are trying to leave the store. They scan your phone and at least 1 item in your cart.

I haven't been in a long while. My son goes for me.I save a lot of money, because now I only get what need. However if I ever go, I will not want to be close, and exposed to other peoples germs. So, seem like I would get prescriptions and be out of there. Can go to Walmart for that type of shopping.

Anonymous said...

Our Sam's Club is awesome! Use the scan n go. No lines! They are out of product because the manufacturers are behind because of putting up all their safety equipment for the virus. So the the Vendors are now playing catch up. If you don't know what you are talking about don't speak. Not all Sam's Clubs look the same way. Some are larger than others. If you use use all the things that a membership has to offer it pays for itself. $4 prescriptions, tires,quality meat dept.,etc... Due to the virus they have been open endangering their lives and their families while you complainers come in and do nothing but complain and expose them to the virus by not wearing a mask. Medical staff aren't the only people afraid to go home to their families. So before you start complaining about such small things...why don't you look at what really matters in the world.

Everyone that has a smart phone can install the Sam's app on their phone and enroll in shop n go. As you shop you scan the bar code of the items in your cart, when you are done you click pay and it provides a bar cade that they scan at the exit door and your done. No check out line to be stuck in.

Your evidently not listening the scan & go is super fast. You simply show the bar code of each item and go to a very fast short line never more than two people in line show the total to person @ door and you are out. Use a credit card put it on Sam’s scan & go sight & you are ready!

So downgrade your membership then. No one is forcing you to pay for the premium membership you are choosing to pay the 100. They have a 45 dollar membership

How does the scan and pay actually work? Do you order your items online or you go to a specific app to do the scanning while you are physically in the store

Unknown said...

Listen I work at Sam's club and yes we are out of a lot of things. You know why? Because we are in a pandemic and they arent being shipped to us regularly. It's not like we arent ordering it just so you cant have it. Social distancing is what you and everyone else makes it. We have direction to put things in the places we do for a reason. It's not a store decision. We place the social distancing features for safety but it's hard clearly to make people follow them and you are blaming the store for that? No it's your fellow peers who dont seem to care that is the problem

This is why Americans are so backwards. They feel its best to complain about everything. Get over yourselves. All, Stores try to accommodate the shoppers. But every time they "TRY" to fix a problem to make all happy. Someone still find Something to gripe about.
When the masses stop "wanting" something changed to fit there personal needs.

I don't know what Sam's Club this is but it could be ran better from the outside looking in. Sounds like a lot of hazards. I work for Sam's and I can tell you this first hand. People will complain all day because it's inconveniencing them.. Use the scan and go app you can in and out in no time. The line will be all the way to the back of the store and I will personally ask people do they need help with Scan and Go app, and people will say I don't know how and do even want to download it but complain at the same time. SMH
Scan and Go would eliminate 50% of the lines but people refuse to use it. P So instead of putting people at the exit door to help scan people out faster they have to put them on the end to control the line so people won't try to cut people to get out faster.for the most part everywhere I have been shopping has been an inconvenience except for Kroger and HEB So take it with a grain of salt.

Unknown said...

The carts are sprayed down every morning. Every time a line comes through they are being sprayed so quit talking out your ass!!!!!

Why do you feel that scanning go isn't an option for everybody. The only problem that I have seen with scanning go is you can't use a food stamp card. pretty much in 2020 everybody has a cell phone with the App store or the Android play store. I understand that some people can absolutely not use the scanning go but 95% of the people in line can use the scanning go app which would make traffic and congestion a hundred times better if people would stop being stubborn and just use it.

Anonymous said...

I agree. The aisles are so narrow I could not walk down the aisles to shop because of the people waiting to check out. They also had only 2-3 lines with live cashiers. Self check was very slow with only 1 employee helping the people. Noticed no signs on the self check registersinforming people debit/CREDIT PAYMENT. People behind us had been in line for at least 8 minutes when they realized they could not use cash. Shopping trip was not as enjoyable as before.

Teresa said...

I think this is crazy. I go to Sam's almost every day,and there are all kinds of checkout lines and five or six self checkout lines.I have no problem getting around like they've set it up to be safe from the Covid-19 gurus. Also, when they have stuff that's for sale at a good price and maybe even junk food; it saves me from having to go all the way back to the end of the store to buy things. I personally think it's helpful. I love Sam's Club, and they are the best bargain shopping one can get. I am 72 years old,and I appreciate their low prices. I get two for one items that I would have to pay for one at just regular stores.the best thing about her is I don't have to go to any other stores. I also use their pharmacy and their vision prescription indoor store. Sam's card pays for itself in just a few months for me.

After reading some of these comments come on people, no one forces you to shop or have a membership there, I personally like Sam's and Walmart, I live a hundred miles from both and have my items shipped if I am unable to go.

The one in Keller does not wipe down each cart when they put them back in for use. I've watched it happen multiple times. Do not assume they have, wipe it down yourself them sanitize your hands. I personally am not a Sam's fan but it's where an elderly family member has rx and prefers. Now Costco, they are fanatical about spraying down their carts every time I'm there.
Bottom line, how many hourly workers are going to feel compelled to go above and beyond to make things safe? That's where the weak link is.

What some of you fail to realize is that they did that to comply with the people who said we had to do that it wasn't soley a mangers bright idea to do it okay second is we have call-outs all the time at least maybe two a day mainly being from cashiers or those who work up front and it sucks when it happens but Sam's employees having been working since the pandemic shit we are tired as well 3rd is that not everyone working for Sam's club like me are not hired to be a cashier otherwise I would help the long lines but in fact I've never touched a cash register since starting here meaning I don't know the first button to push let alone the process step by step for those working as cashiers and quite frankly all Sam's employees hate how busy we are on a daily when were trying to social distance but becomes impossible at some point listen if you don't need it keep your ass home don't come stand around in Sam's because your bored at home NOT COOL.

Have been Sam's Club member for 20 plus years... Shopping there at least weekly... And often more than once a week ... I do however agree that the recent layout changes as well as the modified check out lanes are awful... BJ's opened near me last November... Like it so much better... Check outs are great... Have only been back to Sam's a few times since to pick up only specific items they sell... But do dread going there now....

I shop at Sam's club in Chesapeake, Virginia, and I think it is an awesome place to shop. I love it. I shop there frequently so most of the people at the entrance and exit door recognize me. They are very friendly. I found the ailes and system very easy to follow. I like the products and the prices. I'm very satisfied with my membership and think all these complaints, as far as my store is concerned, are misplaced. It's a wonderful store with good products and prices, and they seem to do everything they can to make it as safe and as convenient as possible. I commend them highly for putting up with the public in general.

Well according to sams club they open later to stock and clean. I find this untrue the isles are cluttered prohibiting social distancing. I've experienced full pallets in the isles. Maybe corporate needs to visit unannounced.

I agree been shopping at Sam's for alot of years and its gotten worse the aisle is for there convenience no thought into customer piled on top eachother and how about if you want the most common things bought you can't get to them because they are blocked by people waiting to check out so if you try be sure you will catch something since you cant distance and probably catch a case also with attitude from others as you politely ask to gain entry for something on your list. Come on Sam's your stores are big enough to come up with a better solution

Sam's club has always took the easy way out.. They are in legal battles now as we speak over.. How the never gave their workers the proper compensation for staying and working.. They dont care about their employees they dont care about the customer all they want is your money.. And everyone trying to save a nickel is there.. Pushing there way around fighting over free sample.. I was ashamed to see these people during the day.. When the vendors came out.. It was sad.

Sams club has done everything possible to keep their associates and members both as safe as possible! The reason for only having 3 "live cashiers" as you say...open are due to social distancing! Clubs have had to deal with reports to the health department as a result of all of this. So every register cannot be opej as it does not allow for social distancing.
Be thankful these people come to work and make it easy for you cranky people to shop at all! We have put ourselves on the line from day one!

You people who are chronic complainers should get a job & a life! You have nothing in your lives so you pick & pick! Go shop somewhere else.

My Lord People, If any of ya worked in retail you would understand what these associates have to go through especially when people call in and don't show up. The ones that do show are blessed with the task of those people that didn't. Have some compassion. Ya have a problem! Go elsewhere. I love Sam's Club. I quit shopping at Walmart years ago and I don't care how cheep they are. I buy in bulk so I don't have to go to the store as often. The prices are great for bulk. I've never had an issue with Sam's.

I have memberships at Costco and Sams. Costco stores are much cleaner and the employees are always friendly and helpful. Maybe in part it’s because Costco pays their employees so much more than Sams.

Please don't let the cry babies get to ya. If they have a issue, they can go somewhere else. I've shopped at Sam's for years. Y'all are fantastic. ๐Ÿ‘

We're ALL people of color. That statement is stupid. If you're calling someone out, state clearly and let your racism and hatred fly. That was ACTUALLY a racist statement. Idiot.
