Please, please, can you make your stores a better shopping experience. Can you fix your displays, general layout , and improve the horrible lighting, (It feels like you are inside an aircraft carrier.)
Also please up your staffing levels........I know times are tough for stores right now and whilst the staff you have in my local store are lovely, there is just not enough of them on the shop floor to help customers.
Surely these are the basics of what good retailing is all about?
You have some great products at amazing price levels, that I frequently mention on my blog, but I always feel let down by a visit to your store. Shopping should be an uplifting, experience, instead of one that leaves you feeling slightly flat and disappointed!
