“Went to the Sports Direct in Braehead shopping centre...”

Written on: 04/05/2011 by Jenezzy (5 reviews written)

Went to the Sports Direct in Braehead shopping centre in Paisley. Shop assistant was very dismissive and disinterested. He openly expressed this in front of customers both in what he said (and tone of voice) and behaviour (e.g. throwing down shoes in boredom). Staff at tills were under-trained and other staff on the floor were too busy chatting to each other to help customers. The floor layout in general is quite shabby - cramped and dull… Read Full Review

“Least customer-focussed company I've ever dealt with. ”

Written on: 20/04/2011

Least customer-focussed company I've ever dealt with.
I only ordered the shoes online as the shop refused to order them in my size saying that they 'stocked whatever was sent through'.

Arrived on time but were too big so tried returning them to the shop - shop refused to take them and I was forced to pay to return them, despite shop manager advising me that web returns were freepost.

I've also bought 'karrimor' branded items from the shop which are cheap tat with the karrimor logo embroidered… Read Full Review

DO NOT BUY!!! Cancelled things without telling me and shipping rates remain the same. It would have been cheaper going to a local shop and buy everything from there instead of buying from sportsdirect. I would never buy again… Read Full Review

I ordered four golf polo's, a pair of ladies walking trousers and to get free delivery ordered some tee's on the evening of 29/03, they arrived today 31/03 which is very good by online standards across the board.

Opened everything up and it seemed in order.. Wait there a second whats that on one of the polos? On the arm it had clicks on, I looked again and the sleeve was dirty (to me looked like suncream stain), on further inspection the whole polo was shop dirty and there was a huge yellow… Read Full Review

“SportsDirect is the worst sports shop i have ever been...”

Written on: 23/03/2011

SportsDirect is the worst sports shop i have ever been to. The customer service was dismal, the staff were inexperienced and the store was dark and depressing. I went there a few days ago to buy a pair of football boots for my son's birthday. I walked in and saw a complete mass of clothes all squeezed on rails, looked like a stock room. Could just about push my small pram through there, how on earth could a person in a wheelchair get in there?!. Took 10 minutes to find a member of staff to… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2011

Went to buy a pair of running shoes at their Baker street store during my lunch break. Member of staff serving couldnt care less, then disappeared off for a smoke break half way through serving me, left me sat in my socks waiting like a lemon for him to return. unbelievable. if it hadn't been for the good price on the shoes I would have walked out in disgust, but I guess the low prices they offer makes them think they can treat their customers like s**t and they will still keep coming.

“ordered some Roces skates as they were £15 reduced...”

Written on: 20/03/2011

ordered some Roces skates as they were £15 reduced from £129, needless to say within a few days I got a cancellation of order email. 6 days later the items were still on the website so I re ordered, I also phone customer services and she confirmed the items were in stock they will be picked in the next day and I will get a despatch email.

Further email recieved, order cancelled.

Surely if the website shows items and lets you buy them over a 6 day period when they have no stock that is false… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2011

I ordered the Lee Cooper original zip hoodie as it was reduced by 30 odd pounds so i thought it was a good by. I decided to have standard delivery as i didn't need it any time soon. After ordering it on Monday it arrived on Wednesday with was unexpected as the delivery was supposed to take about 3-4 working days. The only thing i would say is i am only 14 but i ordered a size 16 as i like my hoodies big. The hoodie came just below my bum but the arms were a little big around the wrist. I would… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2011

The worst service I have ever experienced from any shop I've ever used and known! This a warning to anyone thinking of using this store.

I purchased a Badminton racket from the Colchester Branch and played all of about 2 minutes and the strings broke. I took it back to the shop with receipt in hand that proved I had only just purcahsed it and they said they could not offer a refund or exchange on this racket, because only the frame is covered not the strings. The manager was so rude and… Read Full Review

This was my first online order from sports direct website. I received my parcel a few days after placing the order and I was missing one pair of skechers trainers. I went on the website and was not able to find any contact number and after some search I managed to locate their number and called them. They asked me to take a picture of my actual parcel and email it to them! and when I said it will not be convenient on my behalf the agent asked me to email about the matter which I did. I called… Read Full Review

Purchased Football Boots off SportsDirect, paid the extra £5.99 for next day delivery, after waiting and waiting the boots still haven't arrived, after someone kindly posted the customer number on here, I decided to call, after 30 minutes on hold, I got through to a very rude and inconsiderate person who tried to claim the money hadn't been taken from my account, and that I wouldn't receive my goods until payment was made, however the payment has been made the money has come out from my… Read Full Review
