A CVS shopper has shared his frustration after having to wait 10 minutes every time he wanted to pluck something from the shelf.
The baffled customer documented himself buying essentials from the store, highlighting to viewers how everything he needed was locked behind a perplex screen.
Solregwan (@solregwan) made a TikTok about his CVS shopping trip and showed how each locked section had its own buzzer.
He had to wait over 30 minutes for in total for a worker to help him with the shop, which included basics like face creams and toothpaste.
Solregwan declared in the caption of his video, “It ain’t easy when everything is locked up at CVS.”
He said having everything locked behind glass is driving him nuts.
“I’m here at the CVS and I’m going nuts here. Why is everything locked up?” he said.
“Every time I want to get something I have to ring them in.”
The angerer shopper ranted over the continuous buzzing he had to do.
“I wanted to get my face cream retinol Neutrogena so I had to buzz them in,” he said.
“So I had about 10 minutes for them to come in and open this up.
“Then I had to get over here. I wanted to get my other hydrating cream then I had to buzz this one up. Wait another 10 minutes.
“Then I had to get another type of lotion so I had to buzz this one here to get it.
“And then for me to get my toothpaste, I had to buzz it as well and wait another 10 minutes.”
Solregwan referred to the buzzing to call employees over as a wake-up call to the whole store.
“I guess every single thing that I have to get I have to buzz it in and wake up the whole store so they can come and open up these cabinets that are completely locked,” he said.
“Every single thing is locked.
“Look at this. You wanna get toothpaste, you wanna get creams, you want to get anything, it’s locked up.
“It’s all locked up. It aint easy.”
People in the comments had mixed views with some agreeing with his annoyance over the protocol while others said they understand why it’s being implemented.
“The one nearest my house does this and so we don’t shop there anymore. It’s not worth the hassle. Plus they don’t have any staff around to unlock,” one commenter said.
“If they lock up everything where I live, I am just going to write a list of everything I need on a sheet of paper and hand it to the employee at customer service,” a second commenter said.
“They can lock it up or never have it on the shelf. go somewhere else if you are so inconvenienced,” this commenter said.
The U.S. Sun has reached out to CVS for comment on the anti-theft measure.
