19-year-old Gillian Robertson from Asda’s Blantyre store went the extra mile for one of its older customers who was struggling to get her shopping home.
The lady, who is a regular at the store, had bought more groceries than she’d expected and couldn’t get it to the nearby sheltered housing complex where she lived.
She told checkouts colleague Gillian that she’d get a taxi home, but Gillian would have none of it and insisted on taking the shopping home for her as her shift had just ended.
Mary Sutherland, the store’s community champion, said: “The lady uses a walking aid so Gillian carried the shopping for her and had a wee chat on the way.
“It was so lovely what Gillian did and the lady was so grateful. Gillian always has a little chat with her when she comes to her checkout, so it was nice for her to chat for longer and the lady really appreciated it.
“We are a community store here and put our customers at the heart of everything. Everyone goes above and beyond.”
If Gillian wants to get in touch with us, (message Blantyre Telegraph), we have a wee gift courtesy of our Simm Endeavour funding to say thanks for being so kind hearted and thinking of others. Well done!
