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

use regularly and have never let me down

Always substantially cheaper than the high street for certain things like hayfever tablets and slightly cheaper for most other things. Delivery usually comes the next day if you order early enough. Highly recommended

Maplin

Cowboys - do not collect in store

if you order on-line and collect in store the price you're charged will be the store price, even though the price in your basket will be the online price. They get away with this because they don't include the price on your reservation email as per the screenshot, or on the final page you click on to reserve, so the first you know of this con is when you pay in the shop. I was not the only person in the store that commented on when I was there, this but the customer service advisor was more interested in practicing his training speech than listening to what i was saying.

This to me shows it's a common way that maplin misleads it's customers and on purpose (either the store staff could feed this back to head office but choose not to, or they do feed it hack and head office choses not to act, so misleading either way).

Avoid this store unless you want to be conned, especially if you need to travel to get there. No one likes a long journey, only for the shop to change the price once you get there.
