Today’s Independent reported that granddad Eric Nolan was so incensed that his €40 gift voucher would not be accepted by HMV on Henry Street that he picked out three games for his grandson and walked out of the store despite security guards giving chase.
Along with a gift voucher, he had a 25 per cent discount and told his grandson Cian to pick out three computer games which he duly did. With Euro Truck Simulator 2, The Sims 3 Town Life and Rail Simulator chosen, they left the store much to the annoyance of staff who had said they would not accept the voucher.
“Somebody has made a conscious decision not to pay out on vouchers and it's despicable,” he told the paper.
“We are a nation of sheep – but I was determined to win this. HMV have taken hundreds of thousands of euro from the Irish people this Christmas and we shouldn't put up with it,” he added.
The actions of the granddad have been widely positively received by many online who are similarly outraged at the response from HMV.
