I like Gardner Haskin, at least you can see lots of items on show and the prices are good. I bought a bathroom and shower that was £200 cheaper than the web and a washing machine that was cheaper.
They were good on fitting it as well, local plumber who was tidy and turned up when they said. Good saleslady on Bathrooms, good technically and no bs. or pushyness.
Wallpaper and plants were good here too.
Its a shame its old buildings, but you get used to it after a few visits and find your way around. Didn't like the piped music, but thats just me.
I just love coming here - they sell nearly everything for the home including bathrooms, kitchens, flooring, DIY stuff, tools, tiles, appliances, gadgets, furnishings, furniture you can wander around for hours and the staff are pretty helpful.
Really like the variety in this place and their garden centre is well maintained, seeming to have better choice of things like fencing than other more well-known home stores. They seem to have an enormous range of everything from beers, wines and spirits, to kichen equipment, bathrooms, electrical items and bicycles! The staff have all been very helpful and polite. Bit of a treasure trove really. They only fall down on the website, which doesn't seem to be updated very often, if at all.
I found that Gardiner Haskins was over priced for the quality of goods that they sold, although i found the staff to be very helpfull they did not seem to me to be very content in their jobs. Management were scarcely to be found when needed by myself and seemed to shy away from responsibilities when dealing with customer complaints. The store looked run down and dated and in need of a make over. Overall i was not impressed with the whole experience, i shall not be going there again !!
Gardinier Haskins delivery service is appalling! I bought a washing machine and during the delivery they ripped up my brand new floor. The men then left sharpish without even uttering an apology. I wrote to complain as you can't get hold of management on the phone and they have written back saying it was up to me to protect the floor. However, the floor didn't stand a chance the way they were dragging the machine around. We had moved out our old one with no problems at all. Totally uncaring, unresponsive attitude. Thumbs down! I like to see wht John ewis would have said, I'll be going there next time!
