A shopper buying fabric was stunned when she was handed this ludicrously long receipt – which was 15 FT LONG.
Kerry Brown, 29, went to The Range to buy 30m worth of textiles for her upcoming wedding to fiance Mark Day.
But bizarrely the £50,97 worth of fabric went through the till in individual 10cm increments – leaving Kerry with a whopping 5m long receipt.
Mike posted a video of the mammoth slip on Instagram, saying: “Ouch. @therangeuk put through 30m of material in 10cm increments. Longest receipt ever. #long”
And the couple even have TWO receipts – as the shop gave them an identical one to pick the material up with.
When laid flat out, the receipts stretch the length of their front room.
Mike, 35, a digital marketing manager, from Cheltenham, Glos., said: “We tried to measure it and the tape measure wasn’t big enough.
“The shop were really nice about it to be fair. I don’t think we can believe the interest in a receipt.”
Kerry got the huge receipt last Saturday as she went shopping for material for chair covers to make her wedding next March.
She said: “I went to the till to order thirty metres of the material as they didn’t have all of it in stock.
“I believe it was something to do with the fact that the material was on offer but they had to put it through 10cm at a time.
“The PC started to have a bit of a meltdown and froze – we were waiting there for half an hour. When the receipt eventually printed it took about 30 seconds.”
The staff at the Range were very apologetic and gave Kerry some discounted items to say sorry.
Kerry, who works for insurance firm Endsleigh, added: “They were pretty shocked. I don’t think it’s something they see very often.
“They were so apologetic, I think if I had stayed there any longer they would have carted me off to the staff room to give me a cup of tea.”
She went back into the store on Wednesday night to pick up the material, and was told by staff that the fault on the tills was due to be repaired.
Creative Kerry is making everything for her wedding. The material was ivory organza and will be used for the chair covers.
She said: “The material is white and floaty, really romantic. I’m quite creative so it’s something I’d like to do.
“There’s quite a lot of pressure at the moment but when it’s all done it’s going to be fabulous.
“It will be really personal.”
Mike, 35, added: “She’s crafting the whole thing herself, she’s done handmade invitations, the works.
“We know you can get covers from the venue but she really wanted to do them herself.”
