Morrisons

Of the four leaders this one comes third

Deals galore but what do you get? Outdated food, undercooked instore biscuits, filthy shop floors dopey staff and a management team that must have mickey mouse degrees in window shopping???

Kiddies Kingdom

The best got better

Reliable and quick despatch, prices are comparative with amazon and in most cases cheaper.

Between 5 and up to 40+ percent cheaper than Boots or Mothercare...or the Major supermarkets.

Quality items well packaged for the most part...car seats tend to be delivered in recycled boxes...which I applaud.

Recommend as a reliable supplier!

BT

STILL A MONOPOLY

Owns the cables, posts and infrastructure...a Monopoly. Like all other utility companies has realized that it can charge what it likes if it can justify it with hipe and we will have to pay no mater what...in economics it's called...opportunity cost...the British agree to pay whatever for the utility bills because they refuse to question the reality...we are all being duped by the very monopolies that govern our country. Most MPS are on the boards of these utility companies reaping rewards like the grim reapers they are becoming...the best we can do is boycott the utility companies if we all refused to pay our bills they couldn't charge theses prices...FACT.

Interflora

Old flowers sent as fresh

The title says it all I recently sent my wife a bunch of flowers for £45.00 and when they arrived although she was grateful the specimens were appaulling...dried up wilted and drooping, a poor effort by some teenage back room girl by the look of it...no I don't recommend them.

Dominos

YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUK

You have seen the snotty nosed urchin making the pizzas in the back of shop...you know they eat the pizza topping on deliveries...and spit on it...why buy from them???

What a con a piece of bread and cheese melted on top with inferior toppings that are sourced low grade rejected by supermarkets as unfit...then for £9.99 we have it delivered with one or two extra toppings like a Pube or what looks like a nail clipping...would you eat it? My dog won't touch the thing and they say if a dog won't eat it a human should'nt!!!

Waitrose

THE SNOB ON THE BLOCK THAT OVERCHARGES

Over priced branded goods...overpriced own brand. The quality is no better than Tesco and from the packaging they must source from Tesco suppliers. The facts speak for themselves the food is no different to all other retailers so why pay over the top?

Compare beans at all four retailers...asda, tesco, waitrose, sainsbury...only waitrose is high!

Homebase

ARGOS RUINED IT

Argos owned,now in receivership/administration says it all.

Overpriced, poor quality, helpful staff on a good day, products tend to be inferior compared to Wickes...B&Q isn't always reliable but Homebase is the Asda of DIY SHEDS...

Wickes is better than both the other DIY retailers...and there are other retailers but they are so slow!

Screwfix

FAST DELIVERY, FAST REFUND, FAST REPLACEMENT

FAST= SCREWFIX...in the building trade speed is paramount and Screwfix are as dependable as day follows night.

Whether it's tools or hardware, the company delivers fast.

Owned by B&Q - the company has gone from strength to strength where service is concerned!

Recommend checking screwfix if you intend to buy tools from B&Q as the prices can vary from time to time with screwfix being cheaper.

Highly recommend screwfix based solely on service!

Rbbproperty

Unreliable, undependable, unapproachable

The service is poor, when problems with tenants occur they distance themselves and then claim they don't deal with non paying tenants?


The staff are rude particularly frontline secretarial/clerical employees and very unhelpful, their main \lettings negotiator/ representative resigned leaving customers stranded.

Would not recommend this company.

BID

Refurbished, seconds, grey goods, b-branded, catalogue returns

Thats right they don't sell new....unless it comes from mass produced China.

Their ebay site - Oceantreetrading sells the same cr*p for half the price and sometimes with free P+P and in most cases the P+ is £3.00 tops...

The brands are rejects that Richard Bransons team sources and sells to us at over the top prices for inferior products.

Shop through others for bargains the £5.99 p+p does exist don't pretend it doesn't to justify telling everyone it only cost you a fiver because in reality it cost you closer to eleven quid...it's an invitation to treat.

Bid and its ilke make more money on the p+p than the product in some cases.

Mass posting is cheap for bid...items often only cost £2.00 to send bid making £3.99 on the deal....think before you buy!

If I could give no stars that would be too many

Poor service, Poor delivery, Poor customer service, Poor quality, Poor aftersales care!

The interest rates are high the quality of garments is very poor. These are serious importers of seconds...and they sell at top buck. Nothing lasts more than 2 washes...quality control sucks.

It gets better...

Having 4 teenagers makes this store a must...the prices are just right.

Delivery can be a little lack lustre even on expediated delivery.

Stock is always low or non available...this needs addressing as it is happening often.

Peacocks

Good old Peacocks...at the right price!

Traditional company long serving and still respectable unlike M&S. The clothes are reasonably priced the collections are up to date and the styles suit the period.

On-line experience has been memorable - no issues having shopped there at least 6 times in the last 8 months.

In store the selection is somewhat different less lines to purchase.

One major flaw is the availability of of stock...this needs improvement as the online business is bound to expand as more and more people shop in cybermarkets these days.

Recommend an on-line trip!

Carpetright Plc

The worst of the worst

Appaulling customer service lack lustre attitude and bad management style.

The carpets are sourced seconds sold as top grade...fact!

The Hereford store manager Yusef has the worst attitude; experienced in over 20 years of management myself.

His mantra is to insult the customers first and then force them to part with their cash...and this is typical practice.

The cost of fitting the carpets by self employed carpet fitters has in some cases cost more than the carpet!

We were quoted £500.00 for a room and £475 for fitting...and underlay was extra!!! Do it yourself or go to a small independent the service is much better at the small independents!

Startrite

HIGH PRICED FOR SMALL LEATHER

When adult shoes cost less and you know they're made in Bangladesh and other third world countries you can guess what they cost to make and what the poor urchin that made them got paid...you know its child exploitation from both ends.

Currys

GOOD SERVICE...POOR PRODUCTS

Interest rates too high... 20+%

Hotpoint, Beko, Hoover and Indesit washing machines are fault prone!

The ability to return products without question is fantastic.

Ingdirect

QUICK AND EASY

QUICK AND EASY APPLICATION AND VERY INFORMATIVE POSTAL LITERATURE.

Specsavers

You need glasses even though you don't?

This company is criminal...they prescribe prescriptions which don't need to be given. They particularly pray on the young and infirm...who have little idea of whats right or wrong with thir vision.

There are more people on the streets wearing minimal magnification lenses than we realize.

Glasses are a fashion item and specsavers have exploited the market!

If research was honestly done on all three major high street spectacle retailers the facts surrounding the provision of pointless prescriptions would be widespread.

Get a second opinion from an independent if you can... and remember the profits speak for themselves. If specsavers had its way we would all have glasses....wait a moment I think I have a pair with 1.00 magnification...and they cost me £300 hmmm...do I really need them I thought I did but I never use them??? says it all really.

Very

39.9% interest rate...robbery!

What gullible people we are...why is it allowed? Bank rates at 3>5% where is a regulatory body preventing abuse of the needy. These catalogu companies offer credit to the uncredible and then charge 39.9% interest...why?

Risky business selling imported third world goods sold at top dollar...are we really stupid? Open your eyes to a country that exploits us all through underhanded and abusive trading methods...loan sharks and criminals!

Paypal

IT'S OK WHEN IT WORKS BUT WHEN IT DOESN'T...

A convenient and easy way to pay...but if it faults you can in my experience pay for something 4 times over and then you have to wait up to 40 days for a refund

Facebook

A SOCIAL NIGHTMARE IN THE MAKING

Human interaction, personal information, private conversations...a den of iniquity a haven for abuse and a place to demoralize and interact with like for like morons.

Facebook is the faceless interaction Bullying engine...where abuse and abused are taunted and then in a flash everything is deleted.

There is no room for truth on the internet...FB is the indirect source that governments worldwide can use to monitor us all!

Social interaction and relationships are human not electronic...no wonder that society has become inward they have forgotten how to act outward!

Boycott the FB it's a secret organization implemented by governments to watch the unwatchable!

QVC

QVC - QUESTIONABLE, VALUELESS, CR*P

Diamonique - Zirconia cheap and nasty sold as quality.

Marcel Drucker Watches...available at 1/4 of the price from Home Shopping Direct...mass produced but he claims there exclusive to him??? Only his name appearring on the dial face makes it exclusive to him!

They sell seconds and B-Branded goods at top prices...their cameras are manufacture refurbished and sold as new!

The products are primarily aimed at the elderly and infirm...they prey on the vunerable and use pressure selling techniques... eg. Stock is low...buy now!

The presenters have unrivalled sale skills but would easily sell you junk at top price without remorse.

QVC= Questionable, Valueless and Costly!

Comet

BAD

Comet stores and Comet online can best be described as lack lustre and uninformative...staff are unintelligent regarding the items on sale and on-line shopping is so difficult, complicated and unnessasarily awkward. Compared to the Currys site Comet appears to have be designed by idots. Drop down menus and complex checking out...avoid!

Returning something proves futile the staff are so rude and intimidating. There are standards and comet fails them all.

Maplin

EXPENSIVE COMPARED TO EVERY OTHER SUPPLIER

Appaullingly expensive company. The items they sell are between 25-45% cheaper for identical items on Amazon and Screwfix or Toolzone.co.uk. There is exploitation and there is Maplins...quality of service both on-line and instore is abismal. Avoid this expensive company and search elsewhere...use the shopping selector on google

Ebay

The worst just got worse

How a company can make the whole experience unfriendly when once it was the easiest company to deal with.

The alterations to the My ebay section have confused and disuaded me from using the site.Ii like to know at a glance what I have purchased and now you have to select that option seperately...which should automatically be a part of the "Summary"!!!

Ebay has altered in the last 12 months and now I prefer e-bid.

Sellers particulary Business sellers are allowed to get away eith non delivery and delayed delivery without recourse. Business sellers can promise to deliver within 48 hours but are allowed to deliver ad hoc...ebay does nothing!

This company takes the money and then when you need them because you have bad tenants they opt for ignorance.

Argos

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh its ARGOS

Go to AMAZON get it delivered free and pay less for the product. ARGOS has lost the plot avoid at all costs.

ARGOS overprice then drop their prices just before a seasonal event ...never buy from argos unless there is an seasonal event or you'll end up paying top buck for muck! Check other on-line retailers use the shopping selector in google you'll be surprised.

Tesco

TESCO THE ONLY PLACE TO GO

Unrivalled service, quality and standard. sainsburys is mute by comparison...ASDA is synonymous with Lower Lower class and is a poor brand in comparison to TESCO.

Marksandspencer

CHEAP IMPORTED GOODS AT INFLATED PRICES

Here is an example of the underhandedness of a major importer of third world produce.

Mens jeans (outstanding value range) have been £9.50 for over 4 years. Now those same jeans cost £15.00 and the quality has deteriorated...made in Bangladesh probably by underpaid individuals whom I hope are not children.

Marks and Spencer have not attained or retained the image of yesteryear they are synonymous with the same tactics as PRIMARK so why do we continue to pay high prices for M&S branded goods...the service is abissmal the quality is cheap the brand no longers deserves respect. The compaany exploits third world countries and at what cost to that country.

M&S = Money Schemers

Amazon

THE BEST OF THE REST

There are many internet sites that offer good service. But if good is enough then why opt for excellent which is the Norm wiith Amazon.

For over 5 years I have never been let down by Amazon the speed of despatch the prompt refunding the ease of use.

Amazon is the site that all other sites compare themselves too. All other sites aspire to become AMAZON!

Prices are arguably better than any other site the odd occassion when other sites have cost less has been quickly negatized by massive reductions elsewhere.

Overall you can virtually guarantee that if you can't find it elsewhere Amazon are bound to have it.

Orca Logic Ltd

SUPERIOR

I decided to expand my RAM for the i3 laptop which although at 3gb was performing well my anticipated needs required a dependable RAM expansion to 6GB so I opted for a rival of ORCA LOGIC (OFFTEK).

My choice initially was down to cost OFFTEK were half the price of ORCA but unlike ORCA the RAM was generic and disconcertingly DOA (Dead on Arrival). The customer service has been abissmal at OFFTEK they are offering one excuse after another as to replacement because I have tried to install the item it is now warranty void! Confusing as you need to install RAM to determine its functionality.

I then opted for ORCA as their advertised mantra is quality and indeeed I was in no doubt of this as when the RAM arrived less than 24 hours after ordering a quick installation and instant operability.

Yes the item was exactly as described the TRANSCEND brand is synonymous with longevity and Yes I would recommend the company they have fulfilled first time that which OFFTEK could not.

My only gripe would be the packaging that the RAM was supplied in. A rudimentary bubble envelope which offered little protection for the RAM which cost over £30.00. I would recommend small boxes with polystyrene packer. The ram itself was supplied enclosed in the Transcend branded sealed unit.

Overall the experience with ORCA has been a memorable one they will indeed be my first choice and port of call should I need further enhancements for my laptop.
