Recently bought a pair of loafers to replace the last pair I bought there. The old ones lasted well but the new ones didnt so took them back and explained. They were however nearly a year old but still there were mainly used in the summer for sailing. They located the sale and gave me the choice of replacement or refund. I had to queue a long time to get it sorted but once I did get to the front they were quite quick. (read more)

When I look into my crystal ball, this is what I see…. MAKRO in Reading resembling a ghost town; a shadow of its former self, now in decline. Most of the customers have migrated to .... Booker, COSTCO, ALDI, LIDL or who knows where? ... the staff that are left are miserable, the produce is has turned luminescent and gone bad and so has the meat(at least the reduced stuff has)! The arrogant, annoying butcher has finally tied his long flowing hair up or better still cut it short! and when... (read more)

Just purchase a toaster, kettle and some plates from Makro Online.
Great service, with quick delivery (next day) and saved around £70 on the high street prices.
Only downside is the limited range on the website.
Highly Recommended though and I finally don't have to be a business to shop with Makro!!! (read more)

Products are good value for money but don't assume everything is the cheapest or best value. Watch out for the warranty on electrical items. You need to phone a service center and either arrange a repair or get a code for an exchange. If you take the item to the store they send you away with a leaflet. Staff are often miserable and look miserable. Going downhill, in my opinion. But then, who isn't these days. (read more)

Good: Providing you do your homework and don't suppose that everything is cheap, you will make savings by buying carefully. Don't forget that they show prices without VAT where it's appropriate so add 17.5% (in the UK) before comparing against supermarket or ebay prices.
Less than good: Quality of some goods, food and wines; service; assisatants' knowledge of goods and systems; labelling (causing problems at checkout); number of staff on duty; number of checkouts open; motivation of staff... (read more)

I will never buy fruit and Veg from them as found out they don't have dates on any of it, as its a wholesaler and don't need too, when i ask i... (read more)

The Makro Cash and Carry cafe although better than it was, is still very poor having to wait sometimes upto to 15 mins,Poor layout eye level sales are uninviting.
Grocery - if a product has gone bad, remove it from the display. Dont just leave it so that it makes the customers think that all your other stuff is going bad also. (read more)

I been in the Makro Cash and Carry Newcastle-u-Lyme store over the weekend, there were some back massage cushions on display.
There were total of two differant type of products and piled up in one mixed group, both of them had the price tag of £69.99 ex VAT.
When I went to pay for the item at the counter, I was told that the price is £116 include VAT, when I told the check out staff about the price declared there, she went with me and found that the price and the tags are the same what I... (read more)

For cans of coke etc they are great!
However, I got a 55" Sony projection TV from Makro (Belfast) under 1 Yr ago that cost £1057, This morning I woke up to a non working TV and noticed that a light on the front of the unit was flashing that indicated the bulb was finished.
I first took the bulb out and brought it back to Makro, only to find they needed the full unit before they could do anything.
After returning the 55 miles round trip I took the TV back again only to find that it may take... (read more)

I love shopping at our local Makro store. It is easy to get to, situated on Marsh Barton Trading Estate in Exeter, and there are always plenty of parking spaces.
There are a huge variety of things you can buy there - household goods and furniture, ornaments, pictures, picture frames, bedding, kitchen gadgets and utensils, office equipment and furniture, electrical items large and small, toys and games, CD's, DVD's, greetings cards, photographic equipment, phones, garden furniture and tools,...

I haven't been to a Makro for about 10 years but as I saw it here I thought I'd have a little reminisce. There was never that many of them about so it was always a big family trip, strange the things that entertain you as a child. They sold cheaper things, I always used to buy toys and CD's while my parents would fill up on industrial sized pots of food for a fraction of what the other shops charged. I believe they were originally and maybe still designed for trade purchasing, you had to be... (read more)
