If you shop at Green Top Grocery you might want to find a new place for groceries.
I’ve been watching this play out on Facebook for awhile, now 25% of the staff claims they aren’t going to show up for work. Evidently one management person is making their lives miserable.
There is an easy fix to that problem – Quit! Instead the employees created an entire website devoted to their complaints: https://greentopgroceryemployees.godaddysites.com/
The internal problems have been happening for a long time. At one point the entire Board of Directors quit. Previous media coverage is linked at the above.
The employees that created the website didn’t add a YEAR to the date of what is labeled UPDATE. I assume it is from March of this year: https://greentopgroceryemployees.godaddysites.com/update
Where are all the “investors”?
Already know your money is gone?
Long time readers will know I’ve never been a Green Top fan. I’ve eaten there one time, my ham and cheese sandwich looks fabulous until the air deflated leaving a tiny bit of ham and cheese. The prices were a joke, I can grow my own food. Keep in mind this was Tari Renner’s crowning jewel development.
GT could have started this business in one of the many empty buildings in Bloomington instead of building an entire complex backwards on E. Washington. Don’t forget Bloomington has rebated taxes to them.
Hint: If you want customers have the door facing traffic!
This was suppose to fill a need in a “food desert”, but the prices were obviously for the elites in town until they started accepting food stamps and offering deals.
I’m not going to take the time to defend anyone. If GT is too difficult to work for find another job. The fastest way to change is making it impossible for the store to operate. That could mean no staff to run it or investors demanding changes.
Meanwhile, Green Top might be a place to avoid. Do they have a “No Guns Allowed” sticker on the door? (Like deranged people care?)
