Chemist Direct - UK's Online Pharmacy. Fast, discreet & secure.

Chemist Direct can always be relied on!

I have used Chemist Direct several times for a number of products, both for health and beauty and personal care and this time I was tempted by the Christmas pet section, as well as taking the opportunity to top up on some "drug cabinet" must haves and some other bits and bobs. The prices are always very competitive giving it the edge over the high street chemist stores.
My order arrived in a discreet box, as always, very quickly and everything was present and very well packed with packing paper which can easily be recycled, unlike bubble wrap, to prevent the items damaging one another in transit.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Chemist Direct to anyone or using it again and again.


Excellent choice from the comfort of your home

As a "fuller figure" lass due to steroids I find it hard to find anything to fit on the high street, so to be able to shop from the comfort of home and try the clothes on in the comfort of my own home to decide if they suit me is ideal. I also have a busy work life and am a part time student along with being a part time carer for my elderly parents who live with me so I have little leisure time for such luxuries as shopping!
KandCo tick all the boxes as they have a good choice of both smart and casual clothes that extend into larger sizes. After a 'blip' last year KandCo is one of the few mail order firms who offer free delivery (hooray) as well as free returns, and you have up to 28 days to decide if the garments are suitable - for those times when your shape may change ladies!
My latest purchase was a pair of baroque print jeans and a pair of boyfriend turn-up ripped jeans - I liked the baroque ones so much I got another pair, and both were in the sale which made them a double bargain.
I was a patron of Empire before they amalgamated with several other firms and I was dubious whether it would work, but all credit to KandCo, they do a sterling job and long may it continue. Best wishes to all the staff for the pending festive season, I hope they are busy.

Chinese Motorcycle Parts Online

Plenty of choice, competatively priced

I have used Chinese Motorcycle Parts on several occasions and have never been let down. They have a wide selection of stock (I purchased a battery optimiser for my two motorbikes and some AFC50 and chrome and aluminium polish to keep my bikes in top notch condition over the winter). The goods arrived on the Monday having ordered on Thursday in a good strong box packed with 'big' bubble wrap to stop them damaging one another. The prices are very competative, which is important in the current economic climate. Not all the goods have a description, which is a bit disappointing, especially for novice riders, but they do say to ring for information which is fine of you are ordering during office hours. I am sure to use Chinese Motorcycle Parts again throughout my biking life and would recommend them to other bikers.


Poor service compared to previous experience - last time I'll use Music Mapie I'm afraid

I have used Music Magpie previously, got a free post label and took goods to post office and the whole transaction was complete in about 10 days, including time to get a cheque posted to me. This last experience was hopeless. I had to take the parcel to a shop as Music Magpie are now using "Collect It" and it was a good 10 days before I got any news that my parcel had been was even in the system (this was in October so goodness knows what it is like during peak times). The whole thing took over 3 weeks. I understand that they are trying to reduce costs and the post office perhaps aren't the most effective but surely they could negotiate something with GPO as a business for a better rate?
As there are many other forums for selling stuff thus will be the last time I use Music Magpie sadly as the hassle far exceeded the reward.
You need to look into this Music Magpie as a matter of urgency as I feel you will lose customers hand over fist otherwise.

Hi Jo - your BACS payment was sent out just 11 working days after you sent your items off to us. This is well within the timescales indicated on our website. Many thanks!

Glasses Direct

Smashing 2 4 1 specs!

I got an email offering free sunglasses if I bought a presecription pair from the £49+ range. I like to match my glasses with my outfits and my prescription sunglasses are a few prescriptions old now, well we haven't had a lot of sun have we?

This was an ideal opportunity to get fresh glasses and update my sunglasses. Once again faultless and speedy service from Glasses Direct. I'll look great on my motorbike, when the sun does come out!
