“Selling out of date stock”

Written on: 13/01/2016 by GarryKeith (1 review written)

On the 21.11.15 I purchased a packet of Premium Cashew Nuts....after eating them I had an upset stomach. I looked at the back of the packet to find they had a Best Before Date of .......30.9.2013....yes over 2 YEARS OUT OF DATE....and out of date nuts are dangerous to eat....their answer was we can't understand how it got there....I had the receipt and the packaging with bar code....I thought that was how you traced a product....obviously not.....or is this why the owner is a… Read Full Review

“First Class Service”

Written on: 01/01/2016 by EllieCharlie (1 review written)

I would like to comment on the excellent customer service I received when I was in the Home Bargains store in Kilmarnock during December 2015. Even though it was the busy festive season, staff took time and effort to ensure a high standard of service. I needed several bottles of Charlemagne to put in with Christmas presents and the manager took time to check the back store to ensure I had the quantity I required. Sales assistant, then carried the box with 24 bottles to my car which was parked… Read Full Review

“DO NOT WORK HERE!!! ”

Written on: 03/12/2015 by rzMaurer500 (1 review written)

Right then!! I work at the newly opened distribution centre in Amesbury. Well what a complete cesspit of bullying/exploitation & misery. This place runs completely on fear and veiled threats, this must derive from the little manager training camp in Liverpool. The managers are a power crazed egotistical bunch, completely inflated with their own belief Of self importance. No true professional would want to work here. There are prison bars around the toilets, (yes, you are timed and have to clock… Read Full Review

“biddulph managers are absolutely appalling ”

Written on: 27/09/2015 by tattooedgothicangel (1 review written)

The managers at Biddulph home bargains are absolutely disgusting. They treat the staff like something you wouldn't step on . I am appalled by how I have witnessed how they speak to people and actually bringing them to tears ( disgusting ) They are barely old enough to be out of nappies, so I have no idea what TJ Morris's training to become a manager is . Probably being able to dress themselves without help is sufficient. They actually think that people respect them but little do they know that… Read Full Review

Gmalpass's Response to tattooedgothicangel's Review

Written on: 01/10/2015

Great review of home bargains above... I witnessed a so called manager in BIDDULPH store telling one of the assistance to take a sweet out of their mouth before the person had even started a shift. If that isnt bullying i dont know what is... If that had have been me i would have spit it in his face.. Whoever chose that to be a manager needs to take a course on choosing people.. DISGUSTED

“Rude staff”

Written on: 12/09/2015 by Charlieandco (1 review written)

I love the products although some are rubbish quality. My issue is with some staff. They impatiently wait while you pack your Bags and never offer to help. The card machine was not working and I was made to feel guilty for it. When I came back with cash was told to take my things and get them rescanned at another till. I asked if the transaction had not been saved and was bluntly told no… Read Full Review

“Made to feel like a liar when returning faulty item”

Written on: 16/08/2015

Assistant deputy manager insisted we needed a receipt for return of a faulty pet toy that fell apart in 5 minutes. It was dangerous and could have caused dog to choke but all she was concerned about was the fact we could have bought it from Tescos! Tried to explain that we didnt need a receipt ... we had ccard stub plus witness. I had a trolley load of shopping that I left there unpurchased as we were so disgusted by the staff's attitude. Talk about needing training in customer relations! For… Read Full Review

“Dangerous fire logs and no customer care.”

Written on: 21/07/2015 by JAT190650 (1 review written)

I have had a dreadful experience with Fire logs purchased from Home Bargains - two placed on top of my dying fire twisted and caused the fire front to fall forward. The logs burned my marble and granite fire and could have caused a serious house fire had I not stayed in the room and tried to push back the fierce flames. I have tried to get someone to deal with this, not one enquiry about the state of me or my fireplace, no-one has asked to see the damage. They have though offered me a free… Read Full Review

“Brierley Hill Branch”

Written on: 18/07/2015 by tiBrady335 (1 review written)

Home Bargains have plenty! However I find certain members of staff extremely rude. Manners cost nothing, neither does common decency. I go to the Brierley Hill store store every fortnight.. I dont know how one woman in particular has managed to keep her job.. does anybody check up on them? Umm it's doubtful and that's the trouble with these discount stores.. does any one recieve any sort of customer care training??? … Read Full Review

“Terrible service, no goods, no reply to queries.”

Written on: 26/06/2015 by elterry (1 review written)

I ordered a nest of tables online,and was quoted '3 days delivery, or less.' A week later, I have nothing. This company head office refuses to speak on the phone about online orders, and the shop maintains they know nothing. It is like battling through thick fog, dealing with them. I'm hoping I don't have to go the Trading Standards route to get my money back, but if there service on refunds is like their delivery service, it's a distinct possibility. They are, quite simply, the worse, most… Read Full Review

“DON'T WORK FOR HOME BARGAINS !! ”

Written on: 16/06/2015 by 178Harding (1 review written)

I would give no stars if that was an option. I worked at the store in West Bromwich. The management and area manager are a total disgrace. Rude, have no manners and treat staff like rubbish. We use to have so many complaints from customers about how poor this company is. the amount of customers having a go at till staff because management don't rush to do returns or voids. Stock takes were a nightmare because how late we had to stay; Not many staff work there. But won't employ more staff. The… Read Full Review

“Manners cost nothing”

Written on: 15/04/2015 by Cardiffornia (1 review written)

Had a little trot up to Albany Rd HB's today and came away absolutely fuming. I was served by a vacuous troll. She made the Mona Lisa look like she was tripping on acid. She made zero eye contact and when she didn't give me the price of my goods, I had to ask her, to which she mumbled the price. NO PLEASE, NO THANKYOU. The vacuous one ignored me putting my goods in the bag and just held out my receipt until I finished. NO THANKYOU again. Disgusting service. Next time, I'll deliberately pay with… Read Full Review

“great for young families”

Written on: 09/03/2015 by Hartry282 (1 review written)

I went to our local home bargains in Tonypandy for the first time last weekend, this store is great for low income families and anyone with young children which I assume is the customer market they are targeting. However I did pick up some really good offers there that surprised me. My doughter in law shops there every week and feels that she can also afford to give the children a treat which these days can be a struggle for young families. I do think they could not have items so cramped and… Read Full Review
