expensive, poor quality, cramped shop, heavy handed sales pitch,
Having two teenage daughters I have spent a fair amount of time in Claires Accessories - what a lot of tacky rubbish! If it doesn't break the first time you wear it it goes green. The only things which are of any quality are SOME of the hair accessories - but even then they are very expensive. Neither of my daughters will shop in there now, having been so disappointed with almost everything which they have bought.
The shops are also very crowded and difficult to get around and the staff in our local one are plain rude.
I'm not shopping for granny necklaces either and cannot understand how saying that it's for teenagers excuses the fact that they are so expensive and sell such tat.
Our local shop has also had very bad press about its piercing service - it doesn't cost too much to have them done professionally - and gold should always be used in preference to silver.
