Challenges for Mercadona

Mercadona have some major problems with making the home delivery of groceries arrive on time, according to our data. They have apparently even temporarily suspended that option. That combined with rude cashiers and managers in the store makes it a risky, non-sustainable business. Why would customers shop at Mercadona if the staff in-store are rude, and the option to order home delivery no longer works? Looks like Mercadona needs to step it up!
