“Be very careful with what they try to sell to you!”

Written on: 22/11/2012

Yesterday I visited the Northampton branch of Comet, I told the assistant that I was interested in the new ipad 16gb as they were offering a 10% discount. He told me that he had one left but he had to go and validate that the stock was there. The assistant went off into the back of the store to check. Gone for about five or ten minutes he reappeared frantically looking for one of his colleagues whom was eventually located sitting in his car smoking. They both then returned to the back of the store and eventually reappeared with the ipad. They tried to convince me that although the box had been opened this was a brand new ipad which had never been used, however the screen protector had clearly been removed and replaced and the product in general looked grubby and used! They made up excuses as to why the box was opened but I felt that something wasn't quit right so decided not to buy. Then they seemed to be a bit aggreaved with me and it felt like they were trying to intimidate me into buying it. I believe this wasn't a new ipad and was either a customer return or had been used by one of the assistants that was trying to sell it to me! I said this to them and he just stood up and said "You don't want it then" and walked away looking rather annoyed. Shameful
