where do we start with this lot?
oooh boy, if there ever was a supremely inefficient box shifting company, this lot are it! First of all, Halfords are huge, which means they have lots of animals in the zoo, thats a lot of wages to pay and they get paid a pittance which feeds what's-the-point-shoulder-shrugging approach to sales. But thats a digression. I just wanted to buy a bike, one of the Boardmans....turned out to be the biggest waste of time ever, you reserve, it tells you its in stock, you get there, oh-no-it's-not! over and over.....I actually started to get paranoid thinking a higher power was working against me. No, just Halfords breathtakingly low rent web based ordering/reserve system. Anyway, I think Mr Boardman was definately given a good deal having to sell his bikes through Halfords, keeps the price down sure but then you have to go through this maddening stress to get one...forcing you give up and go elsewhere, nice bikes..shame about the dealer.Maybe one day these companies will listen to the plebs who put the money in the till eh? no? of course not.
