So many girls shop with Boyes

Advantagesfairly priced stock

DisadvantagesNone apart from old style tills

She was bending down to look at some items on a floor level shelf when a member of staff knocked into the shelf and caused heavy objects to fall from the top, as well as the metal front of the shelf. The person was ..." Read review
