    Currys Westfield Stratford – bought £250 netbook, when switched on had already been set up by someone else, even skype had been logged in and things downloaded – must have been returned which was not told at time of purchase and battery not working properly. Sent letter to store who called to say call back leaving no number – so called customer service who said i can’t call the store even though they said call back. Left currently with a faulty netbook, high phone bill and no contact.

    Cribbs Causeway, The Mall Bristol I bought a chrome book and a smart tv on 05/05/2012 (yesterday!) I was told I could have two laptop bags free (I did ask for them and was told yes!) when I got to the counter and passed to another assistant he told me I couldnt have the bags! I complained and was given one free, I got my tv home and was not advised to buy a lan adapter so cant use the smart tv online! phoned and complained and was promised a manager would call me back by 3pm…not impressed!

    Purchased cooker 10/12/11 delivered 15/12/11 without adjustable feet, my electrician arrived 17/12/11 could not fit without these. Called customer services 17/12/11 who said they would send out in the post, have just received today 06/01/2011. Christmas was cancelled at my home, had to arrange for sister to cook for the 20 of us, was so embarrassed! Such poor service Currys and the cost of calling the 0844, disgraceful, would not give me a local number. I will never purchase from them again.

    Purchased a tv from Currys seven months ago. Todate TV has failed three times. On each occasion Currys have attempted to deal with problem. Staff, plus manager, have been rude and unwilling to accept that the product has a fault. Product has now been returned for the another fault. Shopping at Currys has been one of the worst shoppinf experience of my life.
