“Misleading pricing - overcharging”

Written on: 21/03/2015 by Nielsen171 (1 review written)

Went to the store to purchase a birthday gift for grandson. Each product is individually priced with a large secure label sticker. Selected a pair of roller boots, clearly marked 'was £34.99 now £24.99'. The cashier charged £34.99 and the manager refused to sell at the advertised price, even though others were similarly priced. Whilst in the store two other customers got into an argument about being over-charged. Best avoid this dodgey store and go to a more ethical toystore… Read Full Review

The matter was referred to the Wiltshire Trading Standards for misleading pricing, along with other complaints of a similar nature from other customers. Looks like a pattern to mislead.

“Do Not Use”

Written on: 16/02/2015

Orderd a birthday gift for my grandaughter online on Thursday to come next day. Her birthday was the Sunday.. Paid for next day delivery..... still not received it. Have rang five times and promised on 3 that I would receive a callback. We even had a txt this morning to say your delivery man will be here between 10.58 and 11.58 with your order. I think he must be lost. Useless... they were quick enough to take our money but will have to wait till Friday ( if we are lucky ) for a refund. We had… Read Full Review

Dear Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review.

I am sorry to hear of your experience of ordering with us.

The Next Day Delivery Service depends on what time of the day your order was placed. Our couriers do not deliver on weekends as these are not considered to be working days.

If possible please confirm your order number so that I can further investigate for you?

“Ordered online and delivered next working day ”

Written on: 06/02/2015 by ZaidenPeterson400 (1 review written)

I ordered three items online for my daughters birthday last Friday and it was delivered to me on the Monday. All items received, no problems online or with delivery. Simple and easy to use!!! On the Friday I got an email to confirm purchase, followed by an email and a text to confirm date of delivery. One the Monday I got a text to confirm the delivery company, drivers name and E.T.A which was spot on. If I have to write any negative points then the only thing I could possibly write is there… Read Full Review

“Happy to ignore Irish law very disappointing.”

Written on: 25/01/2015 by Niall3R (1 review written)

Amazed that when I returned an Xbox controller and after the staff said it was faulty .I was then told I had to deal with Microsoft myself to get a replacement .I argued the point that under Irish law that my contract was with the supplier and that they should be the one to repair or replace it .Their ignorance or maybe arrogance did not allow them to give me a valid answer all they did was repeat the same line that I should contact Microsoft .I contacted Microsoft after a lot of automated… Read Full Review

I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with our returns policy.

Smyths Toys will gladly accept a return on unwanted merchandise within 28 days provided it is unused, unopened and accompanied by a valid proof of purchase. Unfortunately as this item did not meet the returns criteria outlined above we were unable to accept the return.

Apologies.

“Very disappointing! Toys R Us came up trumps!!”

Written on: 13/12/2014 by Kingk1959 (1 review written)

Visited store for a pink 2DS, was told out of stock, asked if I could purchase the demo model, as was struggling to get one! Was told no, but some should be coming back into stock. Left it over the weekend, ordered online on Monday to pick up from store on Wednesday - bonus! Got there to collect and they had given me the demo model, without saying anything! Protective coverings missing, instructions missing, handset dirty. If I hadn't have looked in the box I would never have known until my… Read Full Review

“RUBBISH SERVICE, RUBBISH DELIVERY, NEVER AGAIN!!”

Written on: 11/12/2014

Ordered an item on line, received and email confirming the order, followed immediately by another saying I hadn't completed, so I went back in and completed, then received another mail confirming order ( two different order no's? ), I emailed them ( as no one answers the phone ), to explain and say " don't send me two, I only ordered one". The first response email said, sorry but they have both been dispatched, the next response email said " refuse one of the deliveries, and it will be… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2014

i purchased a pair of roller skates in the broadstairs store which were priced at £24.99 on the box along with others on the shelf on going through the till they came up at £34.99 after a heated discussion with the manager we were told we had to pay the higher price. its not the customers fault that you have mispriced these and would think a big store like yours would let them go as a gesture of goodwill to your customer like any of the other major stores.its put me off shopping here again… Read Full Review

“Disgusting "service"”

Written on: 21/11/2014 by 62Nolan (1 review written)

I have been waiting for a snow glow elsa doll to come back into stock on any website at all for some time. Smyths have been advertising for days that they would have dolls in stock on 21st November so I logged on to their website & kept checking from about 5am. At 8:53am the buy button changed from grey to red and I clicked it straight away. I was already a registered customer so completed the transaction within 30 seconds. I received a confirmation email 10 minutes later to say I had my snow… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2014 by Moochey (1 review written)

After placing an online order with Smyths for 2 items to collect with my local store, i finally recieved an email saying only one was available despite the system telling me that they had them, as a result I lost the discount I had recieved for spending a certain amount. Unhappy with this I called the customer service line and waited in the queue for 30 minutes listening to the most boring and repetative tune I have ever heard. I spoke to a man in customer service who offered to refund me… Read Full Review

“Rubbish service, items priced incorrect”

Written on: 18/11/2014 by Lcat1 (1 review written)

We visited the drake house store in Sheffield at the weekend, we found the store layout good and found everything we needed easily. We spent over £200, which I had to discover myself by Leaning over the till as the check out guy seemed reluctant to disclose the cost of our purchases! I thought it seemed a little bit expensive for what we had so checked my till receipt to find we had been charged an extra £10 for one item. We were told to go to the, and I use the term lightly!, customer… Read Full Review
