Maplins

Declining quality of both goods and service

Used to visit my local store in Stoke regularly and was pleased with the friendly helpful service.

New staff now, many very young. Now I seem to spend an eternity waiting to be served while the staff stand around chatting or trying to avoid eye contact!

Recently went-in to the shop to buy an HDMI cable, They had some for forty quid which I thought was an insane price. I asked if they had any cheaper ones, which they did. They had one for ten quid, which I also thought was steep, but they said the picture quality from that was not very good!!! I tried to point-out that the signal being carried in an HDMI cable is digital and that there could be no qualitative difference in picture quality between one cable and another, but they insisted I was wrong!!

Goodbye Maplins!!
