AdvantagesFree, easy to use, informative

DisadvantagesSmall area of coverage

"...most people probably regard the Thomson Local Directory as a secondary imitation of the giant Yellow Pages. Personally speaking, I’ve always tended to use the Thomson rather than Yellow Pages, simply because it is better laid out, more user friendly, and covers a smaller, more focused catchment area. About the Directory =============== There are currently 173 regional versions of the Thomson local directory – 39 of which are printed ..." Read review

ybd@thomsonlocal.com BEWARE SPECIAL DEALS

AdvantagesVery quick and efficient and helpful in taking your money.

DisadvantagesYou will not be recompensed for poor service or non-delivery of goods

"My recommendation is BEWARE of this company and the deals they offer. I bought and paid them for a 32 gb memory stick from a partner business (which has hundreds of bad reviews in different places on the net). I later found that what they had advertised at 67% off can be bought a lot cheaper elsewhere and other similar spec. devices are being sold for half their price! It never arrived and I was not refunded the £3.50 shipping charge. They are offering ..." Read review

Thomson Local, Leeds Highly Incompetent



"...have had numerous problems with Thomson over just about all the listings we have with them, on paper and on their website. During these problems they make many promises to call back, which rarely happens. One time our agent just went on holiday without notifying us and when we called she said she couldnít help us. The office staffs donít have the knowledge to be able to convey the technical aspects of a design so it can be produced. This has resulted ..." Read review

ThomsonLocal.com and online advertising

AdvantagesMore 'friendly' and work harder for their fee

DisadvantagesCan't buy online yet

"...as traditional printed directory advertising Thomson are also providing a range of online advertising packages. The packages range from the straightforward online directory listing through to pay per click packages. The added bonus is that Thomson distribute their listing to a huge network of partner sites AND are a Google reseller. The pay per click packages are specially designed for the smaller business and come with an account manager to explain ..." Read review

From Hell

AdvantagesJohnny Depp never seems to disappoint!

Disadvantagesbad reviews from others!

"A great film with an even greater cast. Heather Graham is portrayed in a positive light despite her profession which is very interesting to see and Johnny Depp is brilliant as always. He plays a detective very well but unfortunately all does not end well... But i wont spoil it for you! The identity of this gruesome murderer that seems to have little compassion for women is kept hidden until the end and certainly is suprising! The time in which ..." Read review
