Chemist-4-u

Chemist-4-u probably has the best service in the world.

Excellent website. Easy to find what you need. Quick replies to queries. Give cheaper alternatives to brand names. Well packaged and quick delivery.

Ryanair

Not for going on holiday

Do not use if you are going on holiday and need to take luggage, they will charge you for everything. Everything and I mean everything is extra and the standard price will double. This airline is suited more to the business traveler. If they looked after their customers as much as their CEO graves publicity, they would do better.

Primark

Looks good but.....

When you look at the stuff in the shop it looks good quality but most things my daughter has brought, we have had to take back because holes have appeared or come unstitched. Having to take things back becomes a pain after awhile. Customer service is not very good and staff are abrupt.

Apple

Very good but.....

My family are very big Apple fans and have most things Apple including MacBooks, Itouches, Ipads and Iphones. The build quality used to be very good but as they get bigger and bigger this seems to be slipping. Wether this is because they are using cheaper components, this is why I have given them 4 stars. Everything else we cannot fault. The retail shop is very handy if you want to try any of their products or need advise. Also if you have a problem you can book a Genius Bar appointment that is in the shop and get it sorted. Staff are very helpful and take time to explain things. Shops can get very busy and noisy with kids playing on things.

Lush

Daughter loves it

We always have to visit shop when in town shopping. Some of their stuff is over priced for what you get, this is why I have not given 5 stars. Daughter always comes away with something so if she is happy i'm happy. Staff are pleasant and helpful explaining the products. Drop your prices and you will be tops.

Easyjet

Be aware of extras

You will never pay the advertised price. When you go through the booking process the extras start adding up.Get what you pay for and sometimes a bit less.

Vistaprint

Very good but.....

Took up their offer of a free calendar and tee shirt. Very pleased with each but the tee shirt came a bit on the big size which was for our daughter. Offer included free p&p so over all very happy. Will be using again.

HMV

Good offers

Always use shop. Have not used website. They have some good offers and have a lot of stock. Staff are helpful but do not seem very happy. No problems when I have had to exchange something I have had two of for a present.

Amazon

Very good on line shopping

Have used many times. The best thing is when you have seen what you want you can check the rating of the sellers so you can shop in confidence.

John Lewis

One of the best

Very well laid out and clean shop. Everything I have needed has been in stock. The staff are also very helpful. Many items have a two year guarantee.

Airport Parking

Best way to park

Have used these before and have been very happy. In the past we used hotel + parking, never again having to wait ages for over crowed buses. Now we just park car and jump on a waiting bus which departs every 5 to 10 mins. On return from holiday the bus has been waiting to take us back to are car. The car park is about 4-5 mins ride to terminal at LGW. It is very easy to get to.

Jessops

The only place for photography

This is the only place I go for my photography needs. Their staff are very knowledgable and take time to explain things. They recommend things that you are looking for. They are not always the cheapest but I would rather pay a pound or two more knowing that I have had very good advise and brought the item that meets my needs.

Halfords

Helpful staff

Local branch always has plenty of stock. Staff are friendly and helpful. Competitive prices and good offers.

Screwfix

Very good

When ever I place an order, everything is in stock and delivered next day. Well packaged. Will use again.

Argos

Loosing their edge

Everything used to be in stock, but just recently many things I needed were not available. In the past you could rely on Argos to have everything in stock. Would still use them though. Staff at local shop are very helpful.

Modelsport UK

Second to none

Have ordered from Modelsport many times and have received excellent service each time. Every order has been next day delivery, even when I placed an order at 5pm once. They have a large list of stock and if something is not in stock they will send an e-mail alert when it is, saves you having to keep looking yourself. They are a credit to on line shopping, many others can learn from them. Cannot praise them enough. Can't wait to visit shop.

Selections

Excellent Service

This is the 3rd time I have ordered from them, each time online. All items have been in stock and delivered in a couple of days and are well packed. Easy to place orders and they let you know when order has been dispatched. Will definitely use again.
