    Does the delivery note / system show that they only delivered two 6 packs or does it show they delivered everything?

    I'm going OT now, but it's strange to see you guys buying beer on Takealot, I always found their alcohol prices to be quite high. Total different story if your local doesn't stock what you are looking for though.
    It's in pubs where the world's greatest ideas begin.

    The Stella is priced well. And have mostly bought beer from them in a panic buy or things I could not find in a local liquor store.

    But actually with the restrictive hours, an open liquor store is a rare sight to me. So it is convenient as well, worth the extra R 20 a case.

    Yeah, I also avoid over crowded liqour stores, so I order online. I seem to have great difficulty getting Tafel lager at the stores near me, and I dont have time in the week to go from store to store, and because of them being closed from friday its just easier.

    They not that expensive, compared to what I paid during hard lockdown

    Fiend! Sacrilege! No beer should be drank out of the bottle or container it came in. Even Tafel or zamalek!

    Reenen, the items that is problematic, is that directly from Takealot or perhaps a secondary supplier?

    Again not making light of those people that have issues with them, just pointing out in my (and a lot of other member's) experience their service is very good.
    My 11th parcel scheduled for the 14th arrived the 8th. One item was wrong (the label on the item is what I ordered but inside the packing was the wrong color so a mistake by their supplier), logged a return on Wednesday afternoon and the guy has just come to collect them item.

    They sent me an e-mail yesterday saying they are cancelling the orders and will add to my account within 24 hours. I am very miffed that they could not get the delivery through. I don't blame them but I am disappointed anyway. I ordered the beers more than 7 days before the new ban and they were actually ready to deliver on Friday gone by.

    After reading this thread I was afraid using Takealot, but I decided to take a chance anyway. Ordered a closed cat litter box on Saturday afternoon, received it today. Not bad at all. Only troublesome thing is, the deliverer didn't ask for proof of ID or anything.

    But all in all, very happy.

    Your not missing anything. You see the Belgians are smart, they export their worst beer and keep the best stuff. In fact you will be hard pressed to find Stella in Belgium, no one except the tourists drinks it here. Swambo has threatened divorce if she catches me drinking it. They call it 'wifebeater' over in the UK, but here it's guaranteed marriage ending stuff.

    Ok, I'm exaggerating a little, Stella is ok and I do drink it if it's the only beer available when I need beer, but if you think it's good, any other Belgian beer is way better, trust me. If you're in the Cape Town area you can get a good variety at Den Anker at the V&A, but I have also found Belgian brews of 6.6% and over at various liqwa stores around SA. But I'm not going to bother listing any as I wouldn't know where to start as there are way over 1000 varieties brewed in a country the size of Lesotho, each one with it's own unique shaped, labeled glass. However, I have also been known to swig one straight out the bottle if I'm too lazy to reach for a glass, or the ultimate sacrilege, drink one out of the wrong glass.

    Now when it comes to the Dutch and Heineken.....complete opposite story, they worship it

    I know, but I didn't want to go there. I might not live in SA anymore, but I still follow all the news, and the Landy remains in JHB storage faithfully awaiting our next holiday.

    But when Den Anker does sell booze again, I counted at least 30 Belgian beers on their menu last time I was there some 2 years ago.

    No chance you're driving that Landy again, it's either stolen or broken.

    No, it is neither. I know exactly where it is and what condition it's in. I still have people on the inside...

    I was born, raised and spent the first 35 years of my life in SA. I know how/where to store a Landy.
