The fridges and freezers were out of action at Sainsbury's in Kelso on Friday.

Customer Tamzin Rodwell Thomas said the store “appeared to be in crisis” on Friday, with no chilled items available and fresh food in low supply.

“There was no fresh meat, cheeses, frozen products, takeaway chilled goods and very little fresh fruit and vegetables,” she said. “The shelves have been sparsely stocked for weeks.”

Apologising for the break-down, a Sainsbury’s spokesperson said there had been a brief issue with the fridges and freezers at the Kelso store last Friday.

They added: “They are now fixed and the vast majority of products have been replenished. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
