I suspect this just can't be me but has anyone got any idea why TA seem to struggle to create new listings which have the same or similar addresses to existing or closed listings? This didn't used to be a problem but it's got me banging my head against the wall (metaphorically) quite a bit of late.
As an example about three or four months ago I wrote a review of the cafe in the Tesco store in Prestatyn (Wales) which is located on the Prestatyn Retail Park. There was no listing for Tesco so I submitted a listing request along with my review. No listing appeared for Tesco (and still hasn't) but some time later I found my review posted to the Marks & Spencer Cafe which is also on the Prestatyn Retail Park. I appreciate that TA is based in the USA so perhaps the people in TA Towers aren't familiar with Tesco and M&S (Tesco is the biggest supermarket chain in the UK and M&S the biggest department store chain) but surely it must be obvious that "Tesco Cafe" and "M&S Cafe" aren't the same thing????? The only connection is the similar address but I can't even understand how this could cause confusion, Prestatyn isn't the only town in the world with a retail park so this sort of thing must be quite common?
More recently I've had a similar experience trying to post a review of the "Great Orme Country Park Visitor Centre" in Llandudno. Again there was no listing so I put in a listing request along with my review. The listing never appeared but my review did....posted to the "Great Orme Copper Mines" which is a completely different and unconnected attraction about half a mile away from the visitor centre. Again the only connection seems to be a similar address.
I've also noticed similar problems when one business closes and a new business moves into the vacated premises. TA seem totally unwilling to create a listing for "Silver's Cafe" in Rhyl and instead posted my review to "Cafe Rhyl" which used to occupy the same property until it closed down about a year ago. Again how it to possible to confuse "Silver's Cafe" with "Cafe Rhyl"? Even more bizarrely the listing for "Cafe Rhyl" has been closed so why would TA think I'd be writing a review of a business that has closed down but calling it by a different name?
As I said before this didn't used to be a problem, it seems to have started in the past six months or so. Either TA have new systems that aren't fit for purpose or they just can't get the staff anymore!
