Holbeach superstore still has Dave on the staff team, shoppers are told
A leading Holbeach retailer has moved to assure shoppers that a well-liked member of its staff is still working there.
One social media post on Friday afternoon (November 13) from a shopper at the Boston Road South sparked a wave of reaction as to the whereabouts of Dave Lowe.
He welcomed shoppers to the store by sanitising their hands before they went inside to buy their groceries and other items for the week.
But Dave's apparent absence on Friday led to an outcry on social media calling for his return, with shoppers describing him as a "lovely guy", "a great man doing a great job" and "the highlight of going to Tesco".
A Tesco spokesman confirmed that Dave was still working at the store and an online post from the man himself, thanking shoppers for their support, said: "I will still be standing at the door to greet you and (will) still have the same banter, but (I) won't be able to sanitize your hands any more.
"I will still have that same smile for you all and make you all feel welcome."
