“very disapointed”

Written on: 26/02/2013 by mobutler2 (1 review written)

Having ordered a 'Wedding' present of a special kettle and toaster costing almost £80, because the store did not have the colour instock. I was informed it would take a week but had to pay now. I did not mind that- thats the norm, but when I went into Currys today (exactly a week later )only one of the items was deliverd, they said the 2nd item was out of stock at the ware house. Not GOOD ENOUGH CURRYS- it was in stock when you took my money and you didnt even have the courtesy to ring me… Read Full Review

“Business account PC world do not buy from there”

Written on: 26/02/2013 by iliard (1 review written)

Hi. The 1 star it's not genuine . it's only there no option for no star. I bought an "ultra book acer 13.3" s3" through my friends business account, because I didn't have an account myself. When I received the laptop everything was right but there was very little volume.It says in the ad. that this ultra book has a very good sound quality. "Big lie" even my 7 year mobile old has much more volume that this ultra book. I didn't want it. I want it to return it. They said you can't, only if it's… Read Full Review

“From old to new.”

Written on: 22/02/2013 by margaretdoril (1 review written)

To buy a new television was a major decision for us, and only came about with pressure from our grandchildren. Our heavy old one had served us well for many many years, why did we need to change. However change we must. We were met with a friendly smile, and a salesman who it felt actually wanted to help. My husband took an age, but at no time did our assistant show any impatience. He gently explained the detail and workings of the various options, even when we asked questions that most 6 year… Read Full Review

Shop was relatively quiet and I went over to Shaun was was standing at the entrance in the Wakefield Albion Mills shop. I asked if he had a specific print cartridge - he immediately took me to it and then brought me to the till where he rang it through. He asked if I wanted anything else and thanked me for my custom No fuss & no bother - in and out in 2/3 minutes - just the way I like to shop. Good parking and a satisfied customer… Read Full Review

“A visit to the Clacton-on-Sea branch to purchase an...”

Written on: 20/02/2013

A visit to the Clacton-on-Sea branch to purchase an ipad. The salesman was rude and completely unhelpful as soon as I showed that I wasn't interested in a "bargain" offer, involving Cloud, which he had in mind. His rudeness was intolerable and only my need to buy the ipad as a gift for that day prevented me from immediately leaving the store. I have my own Apple ipad and thoroughly recommend it. I recommend the Clacton branch of Currys/PCworld to no-one!… Read Full Review

“A NIGHTMARE”

Written on: 20/02/2013

Bought PC on 26th. October 2012, it has not worked properly for two months despite repeated visits to the store at Birstal.

“northampton nene valley store”

Written on: 20/02/2013

Needed a new tumble dryer so went to the above store today. The lady who served us was very helpful but when it came to paying for the item I have never seen a service like it before. You had to sit and queue to pay. After 15 minutes I lost my rag and said if someone didnt take my money I would cancel the order and go somewhere else. Need to sort this Curry's or else you will lose trade. No wonder people shop on line… Read Full Review

“Curry's saved Christmas !”

Written on: 19/02/2013

Fridge-freezer went on the blink four days before Christmas. Just imagine! Disabled husband makes getting out to shop very difficult, so choice of new appliance might be very limited, even if I could find a store which could guarantee speedy delivery. Curry's at Kingsditch, Cheltenham seemed my best bet and I can tell you my spirits rose as soon as I entered the store - there was a huge display of fridge-freezers, with a great variety of brands, sizes, styles and prices. I found what I wanted… Read Full Review

“I SHALL BE BACK”

Written on: 19/02/2013

After using your splendid refurbished Kidderminster Store which I found to be refurbished to a very high standard making shopping there a pleasure. I found the Staff to be well informed and highly trained in their departments. I purchased a tower Computer, a printer, a Nano, leads and various other. I found their advice was excellent as being of a pensionable age I find the technology bewildering on occasions. I also bought three hands free telephone system and the on every occasion I found… Read Full Review

“Buying a camera”

Written on: 17/02/2013

I wish to commend the staff at PCWorld store in Camden Road London. NW1 YASSAR served me. He was polite and intelligent. Explained that as well as a Cannon EOS 1100D Camera he explained other items I needed to buy to go with it. I have bought other items here, eg a TV which I found to be the wrong size and which was immediately and politely exchanged for the right size. You also beat John Lewis on price… Read Full Review
