What a shame. Big Bazaar is hopeless. In agra we have 1 huge store. USELESS & PATHETIC.

Will click a few photos and then post them here.

Similar thing happened at cake walk on 100 FT road, Indiranagar. I found a baby cockroach roaming around, tasting all the goodies.

I told the guy behind the counter. He called his superior & that fellow promptly chucked out all the goodies (In that counter) without saying a single word. Easily the stuff there would've been worth more than 2000 bucks.
Thanks for pointing that saar.

Lets see Big Bazaar doing the same

Situation is entirely different here. All the products are sealed packages. There is no need to throw them all. Not that I like the idea of insects lying around on shelves. Just sharing a different viewpoint.

Isnt India a hot tropical country and insects will find their way in such stores. I think we have standards when it comes to packaging the goods, if they are followed i think we can be sure of the quality or can we? Sometimes i doubt the packaging too but then we are being to ocritical. If Big Bazaar is like this imagine your nearest kirana ka dukhan. The most abused product are the softdrink bottles, if you ever see them being transported or stored you will never drink it.

The cmh road "adyar anadha bhavan" has few. The other day, they beat the hell out of one in the middle of that place and carried it away!!!

ROFL amohit.

Big Bazaar sucks big time. The confectionary and food's division is always infested with roaches and other insects. Add to it, food stuffs sometimes are kept on racks even when the expiry date has passed.
