Power outage causes inconvenience
TONGALA'S Julie Dullard went to find her Christmas ham on Wednesday afternoon when the Aldi Echuca store went black.
Having to ditch two trolleys full of Christmas goodies, Mrs Dullard was stranded outside the store without her groceries.
‘‘The word inconvenience doesn’t quite describe the scenario,’’ she said.
‘‘I had asked someone where I could find the hams and I was instructed that I had to leave everything including all my bags and exit the store.’’
‘‘The store was packed and a lot of people were forced to leave all their groceries behind.’’
Mrs Dullard was just one of many people who were affected by the power outage in Echuca CBD.
‘‘I know there was nothing anyone could have done, these things happen,’’ Mrs Dullard said.
‘‘Everyone was back in the store loading up again Thursday morning.’’
‘‘Aldi did what they had to do and have been nothing but professional when we came back.’’
