My first attempt at visiting The Morrison was roughly 6 months ago. As I am an event organiser I had subscribed to their email list and one day I received an email saying they were offering $1 hot dogs. I was attending a football game with my fiancé after work one Friday night soon after and decided to stop in at The Morrison for the $1 hot dogs. They conveniently missed the part where you had to buy 3x hot dogs minimum. We didn’t come for a hot dog feast so we left feeling rather disappointed and I vowed to never return to The Morrison on the basis that I had felt cheated by the advertising I had seen and received. I walked past the $1 hot dogs sign many times after this and rolled my eyes at what I would call sneaky advertising.
In December 2020, I received an email from The Morrison mentioning a ‘Tram Party’ and I RSVP’d and made a bet that the trams wouldn’t be on time. After the tram opening day, I received another email with details about the Tram Party and I RSVP’d immediately. Generally when you receive an invitation to something and you RSVP with your details that means you’re going right? Apparently not to The Morrison. I just stayed back from work and my fiancé travelled an hour into the city for them to tell us at the door that we were meant to receive a confirmation from them after the RSVP and therefore we can’t attend! Can someone explain to me how anyone who has RSVP’d to that event is supposed to know that they aren’t allowed to attend? We never received an email saying we missed out on making the list....
The best part about all of this...the girl on the front door checking tickets! No guest list and no names, just a quick glance at a number on the ticket without referring to anything else! Very professional!
So congratulations to them! They convinced me to come back only for me to immediately regret it. I left feeling disappointed and also stupid for thinking it would be any different. I will never be returning to this venue due to poor communication on their part. I do not trust anything they are “selling” whether it’s a product an event or an idea. They will not trick me again because I won’t be entertaining it and I suggest others stay wary when it comes to communications from The Morrison
