However, Mommy was not too happy with Pelikan's payment system. Customers were required to go to the office stationery section's counter to sort out office-stationery-only purchases for the Pelikan personnel to issue an invoice. Then, if the customer also wants to purchase children stationery, then the customer has to make another queue at the children stationery section's counter for the Pelikan personnel to issue another invoice! After that only the customer can go to another payment counter to pay for the goods. Why can't Pelikan make everyone's life easier by merely letting customer grab whatever he/she wants and then just go to one counter only to get the invoice issued and then go to the payment counter? Or better still, upon issuing the invoice, the customer immediately pays for the goods there and then. That will save a lot of trouble and queues! Because of this troublesome system, Mommy decided not to buy the glue sticks (which was sold for RM1 each at the office stationery section). Instead, Mommy just settle for buying children stationery. Here are Mommy's yield:
All in all, Mommy spent RM29 for all the items above. Upon Mommy's inspection of the Pelikan products purchased, Mommy concluded that these colour pencils and oil pastel crayons are made in Germany! Unlike Staedtler's Luna Classic colour pencils (24 colour pencils) which are manufactured in Malaysia and sold in Tesco for RM21.90 (but Mommy bought it before at RM14.90 in a past promotion). So far Mommy has only gone to Tesco to survey the original price of the above items, but found that Tesco does not carry the Pelikan brand of colour pencils and oil pestel crayons. Also, the Pelikan's stocks in this sale are still new and the packagings are still in good condition.
