I've been a customer of Abbey garden for over 30 years, the staff knew their regular customers and looked after them. Sadly this is not the case, small repairs are now "uneconomic" and to my great regret I was persuaded to buy a new strimmer of the unknown Einhell brand. Within minutes of use the line disappeared inside the machine, I returned to Abbey where a helpful assistant redid the spool- a tedious and fiddly task. I returned home only for the same thing to happen again within minutes of use. I have emailed both Abbey and the manufacturers- with no response or interest whatsoever.
I have to say I find the "sheds" such as B&Q more customer aware and will not be returning to Abbey.
Not cheap but I like their designs and have found the online ordering prompt.
However I think their downfall lies in the after care. I've recently emailed Moshulu to report that a little worn shoe is coming unstuck between the upper and the sole. I thought maybe they would suggest popping in to one of their shops or maybe returning the shoe direct to them. Rather disappointing then when all the help offered was to buy some adhesive! Grumbling to DIL about this response, she had had the same problem with some Moshulu sandals.
So, if you like the style and don't mind DIY repairs then buy Moshulu, otherwise look elsewhere
In recent months Morrisons appears to have a problem in keeping the store well stocked. Basic items, for example cooking apples, red cabbage, plain flour, cat food and cat litter have all been missing from the shelves.
Prices of fresh fruit and vegetables have risen sharply- making many items more expensive than other supermarkets.
Morrisons own label products are of a sub standard quality and their customer care is painfully slow.
I hope that Tavistock will soon have an alternative major supermarket- as Morrisons currently appears to be driving away customers and maybe some competition will give the needed stimulus for them to buck up their service.
I don't find Tesco an enjoyable shopping experience- large hangar like store with a muddled layout. Rather puzzled to learn that world foods does not include anything Italian, French or German. The "world" according to Tesco =Asia.
I find the quality of the fresh produce not very good- fruit often rock hard or gently rotting. Morrisons has much better fruit & vege at more reasonable prices.
The assistants don't seem as well trained as when Tesco first started expanding, often continuing a conversation with a colleague whilst scanning.
I no longer do my big shop at Tesco, just a quick pop in and out asap if I have to.
Paid for next day delivery which didn't happen. Phoned at 6pm and told that deliveries were still being made. So stayed in 12 hours plus awaiting non delivery. Rang next day expecting an apology and a guarantee that parcel would come am as priority. No apology and was told that "we gaurantee nothing". Really helpful I don't think. Also was told that they cannot contact the driver, nor are they able to say if he/she is anywhere near my area.
Shambolic company, will check in future if shopping online and will avoid.
I recently posted 2 reviews on Woolovers site. The complimentary one has been added to the web, the one describing a jumper as itchy and rather a grubby colour has not. Just be aware of this when basing your decision to buy on the website reviews. All may not be as it seems.
Incidentally I have advised a friend not to order from Woolovers if she needs anything quickly. Woolovers blame Royal Mail for the slowness of delivery but all other online purchases coming by Royal Mail are really quick.
