“No Frills Newport used to be a shop for many bargains...”

Written on: 10/04/2011

No Frills Newport used to be a shop for many bargains and I have spent a lot of money over the years there.
Unfortunately since christmas they have revamped the shop to take all the left overs from the Focus shops in and around Newport including the West Country.
I now call it the Zombie store as you will find many people walking around aimlessly looking for something to buy, many items of which are now far more expensive than before the store was revamped!!

Written on: 19/12/2010

Scruffy shop, dated in appearance and prices quite high in comparison to the likes of Wilkinsons etc... Poor choice of products quite randomly scattered around, staff few and far between, often untrained and uninterested. Other reviews for these stores are puzzlingly different to my experience?!… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2010

I am a keen DIY'er & have around 7+ years experience. Most products are branded, and cost much less in direct comparison to other stores. People need to remember that to achieve this, less money is spent on pretty shelving, nicely stacked goods & a shiny website ! etc. If you know what product you want then you won't have to bother staff with silly questions, you can save alot of money compared to many other stores I've shopped especially diy materials.

First off there is no point in asking anyone No Frills DIY about anything and no point in disabled people venturing into the shop as its like a major hazard zone.
The staff are vague and seem to walk about in a daze without a clue as to what customers are asking, fact is you may as well be asking in Russian… Read Full Review

The store I visited was very well organised, staff were very helpful. No complaints at all. Prices are well below other stores for identical quality. Not everyone can afford the high prices of a lot of the stores, excellent all-rounder!!… Read Full Review

“First of all - knowledgeable staff? It very much...”

Written on: 15/07/2007 by alsmith (1 review written)

First of all - knowledgeable staff? It very much depends on who you get to ask.

Yes, many items without prices. Fairly scruffy shop, items often poorly stacked, presented, and often the cheap non-quality stuff.

Items can come from bankrupt suppliers, shops and manufacturers, which is fine, but for some items this has warranty implications, as you'll struggle to get repairs or a replacement. They don't tell you when buying, but push for something a little more major that isn't in your store… Read Full Review

Well, that's a very short review and misses several things out. First of all - knowledgeable staff? It very much depends on who you get to ask.
<br/>
<br/>Yes, many items without prices. Fairly scruffy shop, items often poorly stacked, presented, and often the cheap non-quality stuff.
<br/>
<br/>Items can come from bankrupt suppliers, shops and manufacturers, which is fine, but for some items this has warranty implications, as you'll struggle to get repairs or a replacement. They don't tell you when buying, but push for something a little more major that isn't in your store - kitchen sinks, taps for example.
<br/>
<br/>My summary. Buy from No Frills by all accounts, but it may come back to haunt you with some items if you encounter problems. The people in my experience are always nice.
