Print centre, waited over an hour for them to print a simple document and bind. Served a gentlemen in front of me for 18 minutes to print some Arabic prayers out and charged him 0.34pence.
Stood and watched Emma ring it through the till and couldn’t believe my eyes. So assuming he was there maybe 5-10 minutes before me... thats half an hour spent on a customers printing and resizing to then collect 34pence. (Re-sized them, cropped them and trimmed them on the computer for him)
Incredible business !!
Really can’t see this store being open much longer as the staff were so demoralised in their attitude. Been going here for years, was better when staples but still doesn’t have the footfall numbers as the stuff in there doesn’t seem to be in so much of a demand.
In my pure pure boredom I observed their one and only salesman clicking with a steel number clicker the number of people who came into the store and then left without buying anything.
The roads and car park are rammed and it’s a bank holiday, can’t move outside and inside it’s like a mortuary. Yet these are the numbers they have recorded by 3pm, 64 people through the door and only 24 bought something... leaving by their own calculations 61% of people left without buying anything at all?
Incredible that this store can stay open.
The stock is mostly very good. See pics with very cheap backpacks, Just not as cheap as Asda or Aldi with what should be the busiest time of year with kids going back to school. But it just isn’t busy at all. At all.
Only place I know sadly that does A1 and A0 printing and binding tho so long may it stay open.

So helpful, great customer service. They helped put together at short notice a funeral service leaflet. Cannot rate them highly enough.
