Chilwell branch need to check their coffee sizes

This us my local restaurant but I am continually being short changed on the coffee sizes. I emailed the head office to ask if the horizontal line on the side of the coffee cups was the legal marker and they confirmed it was. 90% of the time! my coffee is well under this line. I get sick of taking it back to the counter and just accept it now. When I have complained to staff, they say it is impossible to be undersold as a machine measures it out. It this is true then they need to move the lines on their cups!


The stores are much better than online

Never had any problems buying or returning items in the store. We have excellent staff at our local Argos and will go out of their way to help. However, the online Argos is very poor. I only ordered stuff twice and twice they made major mistakes so I never use their online website. I think it boils down to staff and stores.


Always a pleasure dealing with them

Touch wood, I have never had any problems with the regular orders I make with this company. They are efficient and put many others to shame. I don't even bother price checking items now as Amazon are always the cheapest. Shame about the minimum order value to get free delivery now but I just wait and order more than one product if my order doesn't qualify now.

I have now lost my warranty

The problems I have had with this company are too numerous to write about. I sent a complaint to their website, only to be contacted by the people I was making the complaint about! The manager himself asked me to contact him to sort my warranty out but when I did he kept putting the phone down on me. I then tried to email him, so did my mother, but he ignored the emails. My lifetime warranty is now out of date so if anything major happens to my car, I have have a large bill. I know why they have treated me thus way- it is because I found a local supplier that was going to do the service much cheaper than them. They said they would price match it but then they refused. Then when I complained they said they would match it but I could never get to speak to anyone about booking it in. This franchise was at Chilwell in Nottingham. D Waldram


Thank goodness for this company

After being let down four times by a supposedly good appliance website (see my other review), Home Supply, even though I ordered back in February, came this morning, on time, with the correct items and nothing was damaged. The friendly driver was also happy to wait while we checked the order before he left.

I will definitely be using and recommending this company again. Thank you Home Supply- a good company that keeps its promises unlike others.

Furniture Village

6 moths use and they don't want to know about the faulty chair

In September last year we purchased two expensive leather recliner chairs (I even gave them a 5* review on here). Last week I noticed that one of the chairs was worn on the seat seam. I rang up Furniture Village who organised a technician's visit.

When the technician came out he said that leather does wear near a seam as it it the part that is raised on the seat.

We have just received his report and he has said that are not prepared to help, other than recoloring the bald bits!

I have just rung Furniture Village in the hope that this information was a joke but despite taking out insurance, we are not covered by their 5 year structural guarantee.

Well over a thousand pounds spent on two chairs, one of which is worn after evening use only. I would advise all future customers to avoid this shop and go to a more reputable one.

I will be seeking legal advice on Monday as I cannot believe the seat leather is only expected to last 6 months. This chair is not fit for purpose and they should not be selling them.

Quick, reliable and inexpensive

Placed an order and two days later was delivered. Cheapest on the net so couldn't be happier. First time ordering from Kitchen Appliance Centre and will definitely recommend and use again.
