Happy shopping Experience


Crystal Palace Antiques

Imperial House, Jasper Rd, London SE19 1SG, UK – 020 8480 7042

Interesting place with loads of nostalgic stuff. Generally split into areas or floors of similar genres of furniture. The basement has an almost museum of chairs from the 50's to 70's feel about it. A lot of the stuff is very expensive and be careful for the odd recon item but that also stands out as odd.

Best antiques shop I've been to! There's about 20 different rooms, each with a different style. Things are pricey but the quality is great.

Beauty Salons

Rush Beauty Salon Croydon

25 George St, Croydon CR0 1LB, UK – 020 8774 9370

I had my waxing done by Elizabette who made it all a pleasant experience. It was the least painful wax I’ve ever had and I’ve been getting waxed for years! Both her and the lady I spoke to at the reception were so lovely and professional. It’s not the cheapest place in Croydon to get waxed, but I would definitely recommend paying for the professional service you get here. Thank you and I’ll be back!

Got my lashes done here.service was was ok only because I booked online then got there and something went wrong and failed to tell me to do a 48hour skin test which then I had to rearrange another day.Had LVL done.she was leaving belt.was happy with my lashes.

Really nice lady. Had a brilliant facial at a reasonable price. Going back soon !

You & Me, Hair & Beauty Salon

110 High St, Croydon CR0 1ND, UK – 020 8681 8503

Had a gel manicure by Julia who was extremely friendly and knowledgeable! She made the whole experience lovely and I left the salon with a perfect manicure along with after care tips! Anyone looking to go for a manicure - go to Julia! Not to mention the remaining staff was also extremely friendly and acknowledged me as soon as I entered - excellent customer service!

An exceptionally welcoming, attentive and professional hair dressers. I've been visiting ever since I moved to Croydon and cannot fault the quality or service. I can highly recommend for cuts and highlights.

Safe N Sound

Safe'n'Sound, 304 Bensham Ln, Thornton Heath, Croydon CR7 7EQ, UK – 020 8288 0181

Called them today as I had a problem with my stereo that wasn't holding memory. What they could and should have done was to get the car in, fix it and charge me... I'd have been happy... but no, he gave me the advice for me to fix it... which I did. Now that is amazing customer service... next time I need anything within their remit, they get my custom... they should get yours too.

I went to these guys to install front and rear door speakers, also to amp all speakers on another occasion. Both times I had really great service, impartial advice, quick service and most of all the job was done thoroughly and cleaned once completed. On both occasions Safe and sound had the cheapest quote too Would recommend for all audio work Thank you!

Car Audio Equipment

Audio Centre Croydon hifi repairs in croydon surrey

45 a S End, Croydon CR0 1BF, UK – 020 8681 1964

This guy knows his stuff. I had taken my Panasonic recorder to a repair agent and they were unable to repair it. I then took it to the Audio centre croydon and explained the fault, he knew what the problem was straight away and was able to fix it. Since then I only use him to repair my equipment, a tape machine, my technics amp and turntable. He has told me that people nationwide send him reel to reel machines for him to service. Would highly recommend as it is a trustworthy outfit.

I've never been more impressed with someone's knowledge of audio as I was with Mr Cammisotti. Lest alone the treasure trove of spares and equipment he has readily available for sale and having had a good chat with him I felt confident that what I took away will work and continue to do so for many years to come.

I went to buy a range rover sport from these guys with my cousin and they were so good we actually ended up with 2 range rover sports in the end. We had a few issues with the cars but james and his team were so good and quick to get it sorted even though we live 50 miles away. They are well know to the land rover dealers along the south. I would be going back soon to upgrade my HSE to an autobiography.

Rob & his team were fantastic, no rush from them at all. Would recommend to anyone!

GO Vauxhall Croydon

15-21 Progress Way, Croydon CR0 4XD, UK – 020 8150 1132

In for a service with my motability vehicle, first time at the new site. Very clean and bright and overall much bigger than the old place. For those who wait there are free beverages and WiFi with a TV and comfy seating. Staff I had to interact with were all courteous and left me feeling pleased with the service I had received.

I had to go to Go Vauxhall Croydon as my local branch did not have capacity. I was dreading making the journey home on public transport due to the distance, and having to repeat it when my car was ready to be collected. Luckily for me after explaining my situation to Rita, I was able to wait and my car was ready within an hour, which was very much appreciated. I have been to Go Vauxhall Croydon twice within the past 4-6 weeks and cannot fault the service I received.

Ducati Croydon

Faraday House, Gladstone Rd, Croydon CRO 2BQ, UK – 020 8689 2341

Best buying experience and service! Kevin is the star in Ducati Croydon, highly recommend getting your Ducati from them, they have accepted my request for a test ride and I didn't hesitate to order a Monster 821 after interacting with Kevin.

Excellent Service. I was looking for a new Ducati Multistrada and scanned Autotrader. Suitable bike was found at Ducati Croyden. Spoke to Kevin Hall on the phone and it all sounded good, just what I was looking for and no pressure to buy. Only issue was that I stay in Scotland near Edinburgh and had an existing bike to be considered as a trade in. Like every thing else in the transaction, not a problem. I sent some decent resolution pictures and description of my bike and was offered the trade in I wanted - deal done. Next issue was transporting bikes both ways. I found a specialist bike transport company called the Bike Bus from Aberdeen who took mine down and brought the Ducati back. The cost was reasonable and still made the transaction a good deal. Now enjoying my newish Ducati which, if anything, was better than described. I did appreciate that at no time did Kevin try to "sell" me the bike rather he enabled the transaction perfectly. First class service, I will use again for next Bike. Alex

All perfect so far. The crew is very nice and helpful. Bought my Harley Davidson Sportster here. Everything like described. For me probably will be the first place to call when any changes, upgrades and services needed

In Moto

Faraday House, Gladstone Rd, Croydon CR0 2BQ, UK – 020 8689 2341

I recently bought a new scooter from here. One of the main reasons I bought from here and no where else was because of the service. Kevin was very helpful, friendly and didn’t try to hard sell me anything. He explained everything and more. Very detailed, telling me a balanced view. I appreciated that way of doing it. Would highly recommend. Had 1 service done here too which was easy to book in and seemed good. Will continue to use.

Used them for years to get my wife's monster 696 serviced, the guys in the workshop department were always super helpful, and I recently did a deal to get a used Aprilia. Really friendly helpful staff, a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Christian, Kevin, David and everyone at Inmoto. F

Decent little Boots, staff seem to know what they are doing and what I love is the cheap reduced sandwiches they have around 3pm! If the date is up that day they go down to 50p!!! Can't complain there.

It's a Boots :) it is not like there's huge amount of things to say about it... But if you are around and need their services, this is as good as any other Boots...

I have been coming to Bubblegum for years, my mum used to buy my uniform from here and I got to buy my daughters first school uniform so it’s lovely to see the same faces after all this time. The staff are super friendly and very helpful and made a first time mums uniform shopping a positive experience, they had everything my daughter needed in one place so it saved me the headache of going to different shops for every other thing. All in all great quality, great service and lovely staff, they even have the cutest children’s clothes so will be visiting again soon.

They made great effort to find me the perfect pair of quality jeans, gave opinions etc and did an amazing job. You really don't come across customer service like this anymore in retail. Big up to this shop. A very happy customer here.

Great in store and online customer experience. Will definitely be shopping here again

34-36 N End, Croydon CR9 1RQ, UK – 020 8688 3202

Very impressed with the staff in store. They couldn't have been more helpful. I went there one day before couldn't make my mind up about a blouse. Decided I wanted it and went back the same week for it. In that time the shop had had a delivery and a change around I couldn't see the blouse. One member off staff looked through all the rails and another went to the store room to check. I was lucky that one was found on the rails right at the back and in my size. They couldn't have been more helpful.

Very good selection of clothes well set out. Clean and tidy store

Computer Consultants

Tea London Limited

122 Auckland Rd, London SE19 2RP, UK – 020 8638 0250

It was apparent within 5 minutes of first speaking with Tim that he really knew his onions - and that he was able to translate deep technical insight into simple, practical and efficient solutions. Rarely is it the case with tech, but truly with Tim it will indeed “just work” if he says it will - and if he says it won’t, then he will come up with something better to do the job. You can’t go wrong; I have nothing but praise. I think this is the first time I have felt moved to leave a review about anything.

Tim at Tea London set up a full working home network (Cat7), wifi and television automation in our large house in London. The professionalism and dedication to quality in both the hard installation and the system development was second to none. This was five years ago and since then Tim has provided excellent help and support to the system always responding to requests in less than half an hour and providing either remote or attendance servicing. I can wholeheartedly recommend Tea London

Flying Tiger Copenhagen

Unit 1093 1094 the mall, whitgift Center, Croydon CR0 1UU, UK – 020 8688 2349

I love this shop, you can find some quirky items there. The layout is clear as well as product placement which makes browsing/shopping easy.

It's a rather small novelty shop, however it's very easily to end up buying items you find useful that you didn't even think to buy in the first place. Cozy, welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff.

The Village Card Shop

29 Streatham Vale, London SW16 5SE, UK – 020 8679 1845

Small shop but they have so much nice thing cards and stuff always so nice :)

What a fantastic small shop with that real village feel. The staff were really helpful, there wasn't a card appropriate for my mum on the racks so the lady "looked in the drawers"... Low and behold I was given a choice of 4 or 5... Then I had tooooo many to choose from. :) . I'll defiantly be recommending my friends and family.

Hobbycraft Croydon

It has everything you could ever need for any crafty project! Good Quality Items, Plenty Of Stock, Helpful Staff and Parking. Only downside is, I spend ages in here and come out with extra items. Great place

Deceptively large store! Can pretty much find whatever you need here. However, aisles were a bit narrow, making it a bit difficult for parents with buggies and pushchairs. Also very hot inside with the recent weather. Didn't notice a/c or fans.

The Works

1105 Whitgift Centre, Croydon CR0 1UY, UK – 020 8760 9244

De Ver Cycles

632-636 Streatham High Rd, Streatham, London SW16 3QL, UK – 020 8679 6197

This shop has more authentic character than all of the cycling chains put together. I encourage everyone I know to shop here. Without these smaller independent shops we'd lose an important part of the London cycling eco-system. I should add it's also a very professional outfit where you can get real -world advice on just about every aspect of cycling. And where else can you get cycling advice from a genuine South London cycling dynasty!

De Ver Cycles are awesome! Very nice people, with great knowledge and professionalism. They have done excellent work on my bikes, and I have purchase a new bike through them. I can’t recommend them highly enough! An excellent bike shop!

Cadence Performance Limited

2A Anerley Hill, London SE19 2AA, UK – 020 8676 8825

These guys are amazing. Had my bike fit here (relatively minor adjustments but made a huge difference to my comfort on the bike). Also had a saddle fit - great to be able to try a range of saddles and choose one that suited my body. They also sorted out some problems I was having with my gears on short notice and now my bike feels like a dream to ride! Don’t bother looking elsewhere.

The Cadence/Giant team here is great - especially Tom and Simon. I've had issues with my bike and I've come into their store and Tom has helped me out right there and then - I really appreciate that sort of help and service. Simon fitted me to my bike, it was a great session, he was thorough and we had some laughs too - as a result of the bike fit I am riding faster and stronger with minimal to medium effort and no aches and pain!! Thank you guys and wider team!! - Blessed.A (green Defy guy)

Valley Retail Park, 5 Hesterman Way, Croydon CR0 4YA, UK – 020 8649 5600

It is a big B&Q so no surprises here - except this is the first place I have been to where they clearly don't want anyone in anything bigger than a small car! They have installed a chicane made of very solid and big metal bollards which you have to manoeuvre found to get into the car park. I consider myself to be a reasonably adept driver but i have a long car and It is a heart in mouth job every time I enter. To the extent that, if I can, I now avoid this place. I have no doubt that it is a measure to foil travellers, but they impact on everyone else!

Fancy looking for something you put in the garden in the garden section and then asking an employee for help! Very rude staff, basically told me I should know where all the stock is and it was obviously in the household goods... Which they weren't anyway! Luckily the young guy on the tills was far more friendly and helpful. So, stay away from the miserable old guy...

87A Whitehorse Rd, Croydon CR0 2JJ, UK – 020 8684 2121

Excellent service! It is always a concern when booking with a company for the first time, but the staff here are both well informed, educated on their tools, and go out of their way to be helpful. The delivery and collection of the item was excellent and they were considerate enough to keep in touch with us and work with us so the job ran smoothly. All in all an excellent set up and I would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

Part one of two... Jason has been incredibly helpful and is well educated as to what I was looking for and required for the project in question. He sent me a photo of the item and a complete price list within 15 minutes and now we will have delivery on Friday.

Absolutely fantastic little garden centre! The staff are always super helpful and really knowledgeable. They've managed to fit in pretty much everything you need and I LOVE that they sell little containers of different types of compost and grit so you don't need to buy a big bag if you just want to top up your houseplants!

Beautiful hidden away garden full of botanical trinkets. Surprisingly cheap considering the veriety and good consistent health of all the plants! Excellent haul!

Homebase - Croydon

suite a, 66 Purley Way, Croydon CR0 3JP, UK – 0345 640 7053

Pretty typical homebase store, entry of parking out the front which is handy. The store is having a closing down sale on writing this, which was when I visited also. This tempted us to go see if there are any bargains to be had, although, due to Homebase beimg pricey, even with a sale, most things were still cheaper elsewhere. Worth a visit if you are local suppose, but not worth a long journey. Many things are literally a saving of pence, the least exciting closing down sale I've experienced personally. Very few plants left, but lots of electrical, garden and decorating stuff, unsurprising, hence the prices.

You can get everything here apart from the kitchen sink! N.b Kitchen sinks are on aisle 23

Appreciating the fan I bought from Homebase! Have it in my shop - can put ice or water in it :) Always helpful staff there.

Visited the streatham store today and was surprised that customer service does exist! I was served by a young lady that was not only polite. courteious and smiley she took an interest in my purchase and asked me questions regarding my decoration needs. I very rarely write reviews but I believe this young lady deserves recognition for her manners and personal touch. I will definitely return to the store just for the service Van has provided.Even though the uniform is horrendous!

I went there for buy a running shoes and I was thinking maybe this store is not suitable for me, but I have to say, I am amazed. Mostly because of Lia. She smiled at me and ask me what kind of shoes I was looking for, she did analysis of my foot, see the stride and after she advise one pair of kalenji. I was really surprise. I run with them every week and is perfect. I definitely will come back to speak with her. Thank you

Bought a washer and yes the rates are expensive but then it’s too be expected when you can’t obtain credit . This review is about the service I received. I wanted to do it via the website but there’s only space for complaints which is quite sad really. I can not fault the service I received ! From the lady who signed me up , to Mohammed who had to reschedule my delivery several times due to issues I had, the fact that he put himself out and did several follow up calls ,the installation guys who worked so neatly and methodically and Nick the asst. manager who was so helpful . Absolutely brilliant customer service all round !!!! Well done guys ! U outdid yourselves !!!!

Great place to look at the quality of products before ordering. Staff were helpful and friendly. Nathanael in electronics was very helpful and informative and answered all my questions.

Store cutbacks on employees makes it impossible to walk into a department store and get serve immediately. I always shop on line but boredom drove me to the store. A lot of waiting around to get serve especially on a weekday.i was surprised. I ended up researching the product on the Internet myself

Jennifer and her team were very easy to deal with. In the planning stages, she knew exactly what I envisioned and new quote requests were never any bother for her. When I finally decided on what I required she made the experience very easy. She arrived on time and seamlessly made the venue beautiful. So much so that everyone was in awe of the decoration, draping and the cake. So I am so pleased I found Beyond Expectations and hope to you use them again in the future!

Designer Wedding Planner

89A Gloucester Rd, London CR0 2ND, UK – 020 8697 2181

Shola at Designer Wedding Planner organised our wedding in Central London back in September. We engaged Shola when the planning became too stressful for my partner and I. We had an intimate day of only 50 guests in the stunning Landmark Hotel. She curated a selection of knowledgable and reliable vendors from the Florist to the furniture and linen hire as well as coming up with great ideas for favours and place names etc everything was lovely. The room was PERFECT. My guests were well looked after by her team and the day ran smoothly. Thank you Designer Wedding Planner. :smile:

Had our meeting with Shola the wedding planner at Designer Wedding Planner she is awesome, put us at ease, talked to us- not at us explained everything and discussed budgets and what we expected and wanted for our big day she knew exactly how to make our day so special. We have just booked her for her hands on 6 months preparation service so she will hand hold and guide us right up to the big day and beyond. I know she will make us some savings as she has all these suppliers in her book. I cant wait until May 2015 for my wedding now, as Colin and I feel we can call on Shola day or night for support and as a friend to get us through. Thank you Shola. We recomend you to ALL brides around. You are really special. Maisie

Mistique Events Ltd

We had a wonderful experience using Mistique Events for my sisters wedding. We were so pleased with the constant attention to detail, the network of suppliers they introduced us to and helped us with and the overall look of each event, we were so impressed and so were all our guests. In particular we are so thankful for Rashpal, she catered to our every whim, allowed great communication throughout the process, gave wonderful advice that made us feel valued not just like another customer through the door and we truly believe we have gained a true friend. She and the team went above and beyond and If it was not for her determination and skills we do not believe we could have pulled off such a fantastic event and will be forever grateful to her and the wonderful team for making it so memorable, we will definitely use Mistique again and would recommend them to all. Darshni (Via Sejal and Kavi – the new Mr & Mrs Pabari) xxx

An absolute pleasure to deal with. Professional from the outset. We look forward to providing photographers to their future events.
