Halfords

Helpful staff

The prices are not cheap but the staff (except at the checkout) will bend over backwards to help and they all seem to know their stuff.If I need something unusual or a specialist part or just to ask some questions Halfords is first on the list.If I want say engine oil most other places are much cheaper.
Used Halfords loads of times and all branches are reliably good.

Poundland

No frills but some great bargains

What you see is what you get.Cheap and as long as you know the goods will not last for ever.Although some tools bought have stood up very well.Easy to buy stuff you don't really need because it is cheep but it is cheep because the quality is lacking.
can take a long time to be served but they are not M & S.
Despite the above I often find great bargains.

Screwfix

Efficient and competitive price

Only used once but dealt with efficiently and very helpful even though they have answered the same questions a thousand times before.
Good prices.Open decent hours to suit people who work.

Maplin

Poor service and goods that don't work.

Ordered cable that was in stock when phoned.Ordered the cable (£70 worth) and waited for the goods that never came.
Purchased a small PV charger (last one in stock)did not work credit note not much good to me.

Polybags Ltd

Quick delivery and goods intact unlike some couriers

The goods are what you expect,not the cheapest around but if you order at the weekend postage is free which makes things a bit more profitable.
I would buy again but as a retailer I would like the option of paying by cheque,even if I had to wait a few weeks for it to be cleared
