I told the sales person that I just needed a quote to get a loan and that I wasn't going to sign anything or buy anything immediately. He managed to perform such a high pressure sales routine (including the old "I'll call my manager now to see if I can get you a much reduced price - but that will only be valid for tonight" sales pitch) that after 3 long hours we had to threaten to call the police just to get him to leave. I can see how some people cave in and sign a contract as they try to wear you down.
It's a cut above all the rest, with superb service from employees who care, perhaps partly because they are all partners in the company, but I think the John Lewis group specialise in training their staff to a very high standard. A refreshing change from the stack it high, sell it cheap mentality of other such establishments, where quality of the food and ethical values fall into question.

I was previously paying £15 per 6kg of sunflower seed every other week, plus having to go out of my way to get the goods. Having used internet companies before where the items sometimes didn't arrive for 3 - 4 days, I was delighted to get an email informing me my delivery would be next day, it even let me know what time it was arriving. The birds are loving the seed and I have saved quite a lot of money to boot.
