One Stop What a joke!!!!
Review of One Stop Shop (Shop) by andytrp

Advantages: Apart from convenience none! Good job i drive i can drive to a more friendly shop
Disadvantages: Rude ubrupt staff

I visited the one stop shop yesterday with my 16 year old son & my 6 year old daughter. My daughter went to pick some sweets whilst my son & I went to the alcohol isle to purchase a bottle as a gift for my niece who turns 18 in a couple of weeks. A staff ... Read review

The manager was very apologetic but that was it, not resolved in any way & stand by my word that I wont shop there again. As for throwing my toys out the pram, yes I did I was furious, wouldn't you be? I never buy alcohol as a rule. And it was me buying the alcohol not a minor. The law also states that a parent can give alcohol to their child at home as long as they buy it & its not in a public place. Also if having a meal at a restaurant a 14 year old can drink accompanied by a parent. But that's by the by as it wasn't for my son. The point was I was judged straight away & she already decided she wasn't going to serve me regardless of any explanation. by andytrp
There is a 'PC' culture when it comes to alcohol purchasing. Basically, it depends on who is manager for the day whether or not you get a decent customer service. In this case, authorities wouldn't deem it to be necessary to close down a shop or reprimand a manager for allowing a sale of alcohol to go through its till. There is no evidence whatsoever that a minor was to drink the bottles of WKD after the sale - to claim it was, (by being outlandishly assumptive) breaches your consumer rights. That in turn, potentially could lose the manager's job. Sorry to read of your experience. by 1st2thebar

I don't see how it was their fault that you were 'away' and couldn't return something within 28 days. After all, if you were away for 3 weeks, that still gave you almost 3 weeks in which to return the shows? by euphie

Belgium Buns,,,,very expensive bird food!
Review of Greggs the Bakers (Shop) by meganice

Advantages: the birds are happy...there again they eat sick so what does that tell you!
Disadvantages: Stale every time

Obviously the top management and advertisers have never sampled goods from both Market Place branches in Doncaster, as they would never have come up with the slogan "Always fresh, always tasty". In my opinion, don't ever be tempted to buy the Belgium bun ... Read review

Amazon...a website to be valued on the whole.
Review of Amazon.co.uk by chowhound

Advantages: Good prices Honest review system
Disadvantages: Nothing yet...but they need to keep their prices keen.

I've used Amazon for years and I'm hard-put to remember when I was dissatisfied with their products and service. One important criteria for me is honesty in a company's review system and I've never found cause to question Amazons. Sure there must be disho ... Read review

euphie 15.06.2014 10:49 So you measure a company's ethics on whether they allow bad reviews on their site? My Answer It's one measure of their ethics - particularly as one of the major strengths of the web should be the ability to know about other consumer's experiences..and that's why we're talking on this site and the very reason Ciao exists in the first place! But it only works if the firms play by the rules. Would you deny that "tweaking" reviews by removing them is unethical? Of course, there are other ethical issues. One is whether companies buy from repressive regimes. Unfortunately most do (e.g China -and we're all addicted to their goods...try managing without them and you'll see what I mean) So, yes I do...but only as part of an overall appraisal of their other good and bad points...and the company concerned score well on most things (which makes their poor review system even more regretable) by chowhound

thanks for your advice kojack123. I have already written to them to make them aware of the sale goods act 1979 and to reconsider my refund else i will be seeking legal action. i did not want to go back to the store after leaving very upset, unhappy and disappointed on my last visit. by abk83
Very poor service. The issue with the date going to 32 (even as high as 36!) before changing to 1 is a common issue with cheap and nasties, but I would not have stood for it with an Armani - it's a faulty watch. Armani used to be ok fashion watches, using cheap but reliable Miyota movements (produced by the Citizen watch company). Now, however, I believe they have dropped Miyota and use made in china plastic rubbish for the movement, making it about as good as a £5 watch off the local market. Whether the watch is new in the box, or has been worn and abused for 12 months, as long as it's in the warranty it should be exchanged or repaired. Go back in and quote the sale of goods act to them, stating that an item must be fit for purpose (which this isn't, unless every calendar I've ever seen is wrong) and see what their reputation is worth to them. by kojak123
