Will not credit money back into account even tho they could see that my delivery had been lost, will not help at all. Their procedure is to fill out a form for for the lost item even tho the process will take longer. Such a appalling customer service and especially during this worrying time with this pandemic 😷 ☹️

I was trying to buy several items and each time I tried to pay I was pushed to take out a credit account, which I DIDN'T WANT.
Why do some companies do this? All I wanted to do was to pay and go - but it wouldn't let me! UTTER NONSENSE.

These are a dreadful company that prey on the poor. Their practices are unscrupulous and they do not carry out credit checks prior to issuing credit accounts. After multiple credit increases that I never used, I found myself needing a new appliance costing around £300. As soon as I took advantage of the credit increase they increased my rate of interest to an exorbitant amount claiming that there had been an increase in risk. If a customer is considered a risk, why repeatedly increase credit limits? So they can get as much money out of you as possible as they can increase your rate of interest with every increase in your balance and claim that an 'increase of risk' forces them to put your account from 30 odd percent to almost 60 %! They are nothing but glorified thieves who engage in practices that see you paying way more than you can realistically afford when they up your interest rate to ridiculous levels. And don't expect to be treated appropriately when you make complaints - staff haven't a clue what they are doing and when you threaten legal action and insist they provide all of your details under GDPR, they ignore you because they know they are acting illegally and don't want you to have the evidence that proves it. Stay well away from this company. It is better to go without than have to deal with a law breaking company that preys on and exploits the poor!

Made an order which they refused and cancelled my credit. After 5 weeks e-mailing them they reinstated and told me to re-order which I did-they cancelled whole account! Cannot access even to make a payment. No answer as yet to my e-mails. I REFUSE to telephone, too expensive and THEIR error. All this btw is after 10 years as a customer! Not impressed

The website failed at point of payment - it continuely tried to make us set up a credit account. It would not let us just opt out and just pay. We both work with on-line companies so are used to point of sale payment, but found this to be one of the most annoying websites we've ever used, needless to say we've purchased what we needed elsewhere. Ambrose Wilson - should imagine most of your customers are elderly - sort your website out!

Ambrose wilson gave me a 125 credit limit which I ordered and recieved SOME of the goods on, I made a payment, they refunded the thing that went missing and then THEY TOOK THE CREDIT LIMIT AWAY. WHY. THEY STILL HAVENT EXPLAINED. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE AND GO TO A RELIABLE CATALOGUE. THATS MY OPINION.

Tried to place my first order , a pair of Lotus shoes. Code 25NOW .would not work I e mailed customer service.
They initially tried to “wriggle “out of the discount but finally agreed the problem. Only arrangement offered was for me to buy shoes at full price , e mail customer service again on dispatch and sit back to wait for refund on my card!!! Not worth the hassle,
Dreadful service , the discount code is obviously a con.Do not use this company, I certainly won’t!

I returned goods via royal mail special delivery (tracked and signed for) it arrived with he company 4 days ago. However they are claiming it hasn't arrived!. The address label on the parcel was a pre printed one they supplied. I paid for the postage (glad I did). Its showing on Royal mail that it has been delivered and signed for at their address in Gateshead.

Their customer care team is treating me like an idiot. Why would I believe that in 2019 that a system only updates after 7 days. Are they using systems from the 60's 70's or 80's? Additionally apparently they cant see it has been returned on my account. Glad I have the Royal mail confirmation that they have safely delivered it.

Raised a complaint...and have heard a big fat nothing.....shows they do not care.

Ordered a pair of shoes paid on my debit card, received one mans dapper jacket, rang to tell them said they were going collect and refund delivery charges on first order & had to reorder shoes said I would not pay delivery on that either as it was their fault but they've taken double delivery charges on my second order then to cap it off wrong delivery address on second order. As said in other reviews first time customer will not be ordering from this company again.

As a man I find the new advert totally ridiculous .It states sizes 12 to 32 ??not one of the models looks more that size 10 and certainly not more than a 12 surely you should e showing larger models as that would appear to be your target market . Just be more honest and show some real people Mike

Got account with them, paid on time, monthly credit increases until today when they dropped my credit limit back to £125 without informing me. Absolutely fuming, no letters, phone calls. Disgusting way to treat a loyal

I had the same thing happen as the last post. Got credit account and paid the difference on my credit card for some dresses for a wedding.Credit dept called as I have a password to get credit all was ok, then a letter asking for £40.00 as they had cancelled two dresses untill I pay the money. Called customer service and they said the credit wasn't £150 as told and couldn't do anything. They was getting the manager to call me after they came from a meeting at 4pm yesterday. STILL WAITING!!! the worst customer service I have had in a very long time!

Fantastic service from start to finish. I was well informed regarding expected delivery dates.

So far all of my orders have been of fantastic quality and great value for money.

Their online ordering system is faultless. Highly recommend this company!
