The holiday season's almost upon us, and Woolworths New Zealand is launching a campaign today, asking shoppers to show some care at the supermarket. Staff are continuing to report high levels of verbal and physical abuse from some customers - with cases more than doubling in the last six months. Woolworths Head of Health, Safety and Wellbeing, Denva Wren told our producer Matthew Hutching the abuse just isn't going away.
