Advantages great variety of shops and eateries
Disadvantages sports direct staff were very rude and unhelpful
My girlfriend and I went to West Quay on the Saturday just gone and we had a great time. We went in search of a present for her mum and for some work trousers and shirts for me for work.There so are many shops at West Quay I won't bother listing all of them, i don't want to be accused of filling out my review nor do I want to bore you! I will mention the ones I personally experienced however.
The multi storey car park was not that busy and parked on the ground floor in the morning which was nice. Getting out later on was also not a problem.--------
For my work trousers and shirts we went into River Island, straight away I managed to find some trousers in the spacious and stylish store, there was a person on hand by the changing room that was helpful and polite. In no time I had tried on the trousers and shirt and found them to fit so I bought straight away. A nice efficient purchasing experience, just how we men prefer! In general River Island was very large in both mens and women's departments and the staff were very helpful...one nag i should mention was that on my particular visit they might of wanted to open another till as there was a large queue forming.For her mum's present we had great fun looking in the gadget shop and looking at all the useless yet fun toys and games, favourites of mine included the knife holder that looked like a figure that had been stabbed and the old classic electrocution game! This store was fun and original but not entirely useful in looking for presents for mums. We did have a look in the enormous John Lewis that consisted of four floors with kitchen bits, furniture, sweets, chocolates and clothes; we were nearly tempted by a pretty watering can that could of been used for ornamental purposes but we were put off by the price of £30!! John Lewis is very nice but not cheap.
My favourite shop had be Paperchase, the card shop, full of funky and funny cards to get friends and family it really did give us many options and I found myself getting cards that I wouldn't normally get. As well as cards they also supply calenders, scrapbooks (very pretty but a little pricey) and other stationary.A nice surprise was seeing a month old store Hollister, my girlfriend and I fell in love with this Abercrombie and Fitch style store when we were in the US, it stinks of its aftershave and the inside is a little pretentious with the staff adding to it by trying to sound American in saying "Hey, hows it going?" in an OTT fashion accompanied by a fake smile.
