Tesco trolleys nightmare for new mum

I HAVE a complaint to make regarding Tesco and their recent ridiculous idea of adding £1 slots to their trolleys.

I HAVE a complaint to make regarding Tesco and their recent ridiculous idea of adding £1 slots to their trolleys.

I am a mother to a 10-week-old baby and what with the lack of parent and child parking spaces and now the £1 slots on the trolleys, I am fed up of walking halfway across the car park to try and find a trolley, let alone if you’ve come out without a £1 to go halfway across the car park, to go into store where they tell you to go and withdraw some cash come back to the store they will change it up go and hunt for a trolley with a baby carrier in it and then finally get into the shop. It is disgusting. Recently, my 10-week-old was suffering with bronchiolitis and I wanted to go to Tesco pharmacy and I had to go through this entire process just to get in the shop when it was minus temperatures outside.
