Owner description: It's Christmas year round at this specialty store offering Yuletide items.
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Like other reviewers I have been visiting this shop for many years and have purchased various decorations. On the last occasion, the owner refused to sell me a bauble because he told me that the one I was holding had been incorrectly priced and that I should have taken one from the bottom of the basket where apparently the baubles were 50p more expensive. So basically he was blaming his mistake on me!!! When he asked me if I still wanted the bauble I promptly put the bauble back in the basket and left the shop. I have never been back since. You would think that in such a lovely Christmas shop, there would be a super sales assistant full of cheer all year round. Well - forget Father Christmas. This owner is Scrooge!!!

Every year for the past few years I have been to this shop - so today we went to get decorations, I put a few in my basket. After a while one of the sales people came over to say one of the items in my basket was incorrectly priced. Then after I said there were a number with the same price mark on the owner comes over and snatches it out of my basket and says he is taking these off sale. I politely said I thought even if things were incorrectly priced you had to sell them (it was only £3 difference). He was very rude and was trying to accuse me of changing labels. He has now lost a loyal customer and many more of my friends who go to this shop. The items are nice but not worth being looked down on for.

This is the place to shop for that special Christmas decoration! Huge selection of quality items, well worth a visit! My only criticism is the stressed out owner! He treats everyone as if they are a shop lifter and it makes for an uneasy atmosphere! A smile and a warm welcome in a Christmas Shop is obligatory surely?
