Poor treatment of staff meant that in less than 6 months nearly 200 staff left or were sacked ... Read review

No Respect! Just Bargains!

AdvantagesExcellent value products

DisadvantagesPoor respect for the people they employ, especially those that actually help them.

"...never deny the quality of Buyology goods are far superior to similar style retaillers. The store sells everyday products to the consumer from food to furniture. I cant give my support to a company that treat staff in such a terrible manner. I worked for Buyology for a period of time, and while I enjoyed my time there it seemed that no sooner had I served my purpose, in respect of getting the store to a specific standard, my services were no longer ..."

Good shop turned to crap



"I used to be passionate about tjis store, but a visit yesterday changed all that! Having built the store up from nothing, the owners of the company according to staff members blackmailed him out of the business. A fact that they were not happy with. They also tol;d me that loads of staff had been binned over the past couple of weeks not just in the Cheltenham store, but even in head office. On top of that there were animal traps of varying types ..." Read review

Hyper Value no more, Buyology is here!

AdvantagesMore stock than before

DisadvantagesStaff cannot keep up

"...company and were now called Buyology (why that name I dont know).

Sure they havent got all the old favourites in and the aisles have got trolleys of stock ..." Read review

Advantages range of items / good old fashioned stack it high shop

Disadvantages where are the signs???

"...first week of Jan 07 Buyology had opened. Saving the jobs of all the staff who would have been made redundant. The speed at which the shop filled with stock was amazing and any one who remembers how bare and empty hyper value had become would also be taken aback with this transformation. Like the Bridgewater store the staff at the Bridgend store are also very helpful and cheery and despite the vast array of items they have they all seem to know where ..." Read review
