Lidl denies claims about a worker and a homeless man

Lidl Limerick
Lidl has strongly defended itself against claims on Facebook that an employee threw a bucket of water over a homeless man. The supermarket chain said it was “extremely concerned” by an allegation involving one of its employees and a member of the public at its Limerick city store on the Ennis Road. The incident came to light on Tuesday after a man posted a message online outlining the details of the incident, which he claimed he had witnessed. However, in a strong statement, Lidl said it had launched a full investigation to establish the full facts of the incident. “Our investigation has identified significant discrepancies from the allegations posted. "An individual was begging outside our Caherdavin store. A number of customers complained to store management who politely asked the individual to move from outside the store on a number of occasions. Complimentary food from our bakery was provided by the Store Manager to the individual. “Eventually the individual left from the front of the store. Our investigation concluded that at no point was water thrown on the individual concerned.
