Domino’s Pizza staff pictured buying 59p Aldi potato wedges to sell as their own for £3.49
Pizza giant forced to admit blunder after Aldi shopper snaps Domino’s worker buying cut-rate snack at budget supermarket
Domino’s Pizza staff have been caught buying potato wedges from Aldi and fobbing them off as their own.
A worker at the Domino’s branch in Linlithgow, West Lothian, was photographed buying bags of wedges for 59p each from a nearby branch of the budget supermarket.
Domino’s then sold these to their customers for a massively marked-up £3.49 a portion.
The shopper who spotted the Domino’s staffer buying the wedges told the Daily Record: “I had a bit of a chuckle – but it’s really cheeky flogging Aldi products as their own.”
Domino’s staff first claimed they bought the wedges for their own use.
But bosses later admitted they had run out of their own – and blamed the shortage on the World Cup and Wimbledon.
A spokesman said: “With big sporting events in full swing, the Linlithgow store was faced with no wedges.
“We do not advocate this as a solution. We have spoken to the store to ensure ordering has been adjusted and our customers get Domino’s wedges.”
