Written on: 09/12/2010 by drea87 (1 review written)

This is the first time iv bought anything from the website and i will NOT be using it again! Jumper was wrong colour, was supposed to be black and it came in purple! The joggies were torn at then bottom hem, its looks like someone cut the bottom of each leg with scissors? I think it is ridiculous that there is no contact number on the website. I eventually found a phone number on a forum and phoned them. The guy i spoke to was worse than useless! He didnt have a clue what to tell me and said he… Read Full Review

“I've ordered twice from the website, the first order...”

Written on: 04/12/2010

I've ordered twice from the website, the first order came within 2 days. My second order was held up with the snow but as I'd requested 24 hour delivery and paid extra I was refunded my P&P of £5.99. The order came 2 days late, bearing in mind DHL were delivering from Sheffield and they had very bad weather. I contacted Sports Direct through their email and they've answered every query and have been very helpful. I've read the bad reviews but I can honestly say I've not had any problems… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2010

Ordered a football shirt online. One week later I still hadn't received even a confirmation email let alone the product ordered. I contacted the company by phone (no easy task - apparently their phone number is a state secret)and was told that for some reason the system had not picked up my order and should I still wish to buy the item I would need to re- order it. I decided it would be less hassle to take my custom elsewhere and so told them I wouldn't be re- ordering & subsequently bought the… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2010

First time ordered, 2 items missing and a sports direct mug included in the parcel. Impossible to find a contact phone number on their website which I thought was against trading standards, won't be ordering from them again. I used to work for them years ago and hated the sales manager then, seems like he's cloned himself… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2010 by myatt99 (1 review written)

this is a great store with superb prices on products that you pay 10,£20 more for in others shops. As for you people talking about the shop not giving refunds if you dont want the product dont buy it, most shops offer you a gift card instead that has a 18 month date on it, if you find you havent got something in the store you would like at that time, the only don of that is you cant use it on the website that happens to be excellent, all the times i have orderd the goods have arived on time… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/11/2010

My website order with Sports direct has always been fine but i would avoid the stores at all costs! My mum went there and saw some kids shoes and asked the shop assistant if there were any in a certain size. He seemed like he couldnt be bothered and actually was acting all angry and said 'Im busy' so she walked out. I went there today(in a different branch) and stood in a queue for a while to pay for a Longsdale top. There was another queue on the other till but when it got to my turn the shop… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/11/2010

Store refused cash refund even though it could not offer a replacement. Tried to return a boy's red England shirt today with all labels attached and recept to Sports Direct store at Mansfield's St Perter Retail Park. Bought 2 days's earlier. Hanger said aged 5 to 6 but shirt was aged 8 to 9. Stupidly I hadn't checked. Zombified staff repeated exchange or voucher, no cah refund. There is no customer care within this store and the staff are unable to make decisions based each individual case… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/11/2010

Bought a few pairs of Umbro Joggers for just £4 each- great service, ordered on Monday evening was there when I arrived home on Wednesday. I was weary of ordering from Sportsdirect as the general reviews tend to be bad, but I can honestly say they offer great deals and swift delivery. I would certainly order from them again with Christmas just around the corner!… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2010

Nike golf shoes didn't fit properly and didn't keep out the damp.
Attitude of shop - they are not faulty so go away
Attitude of customer services - so they do not fit and you are not happy - hard luck we are not interested.
Would not buy anything you might need to return as they clearly have a policy of avoiding returns and do not care if a customer is happy or not.
Staff are rude as well… Read Full Review

Purchased a £2 umbro suck pack. Received it on time with a free gift (a mug).
They thought I did not receive it and re-sent the sock to me!
When I told them they asked me not to worry and keep it as a gift.
Highly recommended!… Read Full Review

I ordered a jacket, when the parcel came it was empty and they are basically saying I am a liar and tough luck.... DO NOT BUY FROM THIS WEBSITE, their customer serice is appalling and off my experience they make money by charging people and never sending them their goods. I have now taken this up with my credit card company and trading standards to help get me my money back… Read Full Review
