Ok the store has bargains BUT only because the products are awful

AdvantagesCheap products. The staff are nice.

DisadvantagesThey are cheap for a reason (second hand, not guaranteed to work)

Robin Hood for DVD, Sims 3 for Play station 3 and Ipod touch 16GB. CEX willl offer you £1.20 for the Robin Hood DVD, £9 for The sims 3 for play station 3 and £60 for you 16GB Ipod touch, the company then sell your porducts in ..." Read review
