I’m a Home Bargains worker – here are the five types of shoppers we see every day

A frustrated Home Bargains employee has revealed the five hilarious types of customers they see every day, and he’s not holding back.

From the angry Karen guys to the curmudgeons and the pranksters, it seems all of the chain’s shoppers are trying out the same old lines.

The Home Bargains rep used TikTok to tease the classic shopper types he’s all too familiar with.

He even gives the video caveats, saying, “There’s so much more I could do, it’s eventful, I can’t lie.”

His customer showdown begins with an older, short-haired woman — possibly reminiscent of the Karen stereotype — telling the chain store employees to “open a new register.”

The video Continuing, a blonde, artificially tanned woman looks confident as she says, “These must be your machines, not my card.”

Then there’s an older gentleman in his 70s who tries the hackneyed but classic question, “Do you need to see my ID too?”

The creator is visibly upset by the cheeky customers asking for an extra discount and depicts a smiling woman preparing to say something annoying.

He captioned them, “Reduce that for me even though it’s already 40p.”

Finally, the Home Bargains rep uses a retro image of an angry Kate Moss and Matt Lucas from a Little Britain sketch to tease his customers even more.

Lucas asks, “Why do you identify us both, she buys it?”

Meanwhile, Home Bargains shoppers are rushing to pick up this cool summer must-have, perfect for warm summer nights.

Savvy bargain hunters have spotted a 32-inch tower fan for just £19.99 at the popular discount store.

It comes as a psychologist revealed the underhand sales techniques at play well before entering the store, specifically the company’s logo.

Giulia Bianchi explains that the choice of “eye-catching” red in Home Bargains’ logo helps convey “urgency,” while noting that blue signifies “trustworthiness, dependability, and dependability.”

She explains, “Brands often use this color combination to inspire trust and brand loyalty in their customers.”
