They have always been great with me! Am I missing something-I rather rely on Bunces, and I think they are fab.

I'm never sure whether it's a self service' superstore' or a modern day Arkwrights !! Either way TBH it's over priced for most things. Okay if you're desperate I suppose.

It is my understanding that female staff get paid less than the male staff, no wonder they look grumpy.

No it's not 'Local'. Personally I'm pleased and somewhat amazed that we still have a 'Bunce': a useful shop is a rare beast indeed on our clogged up with clones High Street. I know I'll be depending on Bunce when our economy goes belly up rather than Wickle, Botts and (whatever) et al. We should be supporting Bunce's business rather than going along with this rather nasty and personal attack on their staff.

Could this be from the same miserable tw at that was complaining about Martins a few days ago?. No coincidence that the individual targeted for that particular hate campaign also worked at Bunces not so long ago.......I sense a coward of the lowest order at work here.

Jill I suspect sheís perfectly nice to most of her customers, however maybe itís time to look in the mirror to try & understand the service you received. This forum demonstrates perfectly the kind of Ďpersonalitiesí that can be encountered day in day out in town. Itís little wonder shop keepers find their tolerance levels pushed when actually having to come face to face. Much better to just stay sat behind a keyboard making others lives a misery on this kind kind of platform where at least it can just be ignored

If you want bad service, go to the BP garage when the two middle-aged women are on the tills.

Nonsense. Great shop always friendly, actually sell stuff you want, which is increasingly rare in Lewes.

Perhaps you were unlucky Jill, or maybe I've always been fortunate. I've always found them to be pleasant, polite, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Of course they don't stock everything but I always enjoy trying them first.

The majority of the items that they sell are extremely expensive. Shop around, and grab the best deals. Loyalty to a brand/shop drains the wallet!

Shopping around kills high streets Savvy Shopper. And there's something to be said about loyalty - it's often reciprocal. I know that's true of the businesses and trades that 'look after' me in Lewes. However I have to say loyalty to 'brands' is an alien concept to me.

Bunces considerably better service than a few years ago when it was worth going into just to see how bad it was. I don't think it's accurate to talk of high streets dying. All the shops could become houses again. It would be no more dead than the road you live on.

Bunces is in most large towns, I donít get the logic of preferring to high street clones. As for 16 thumbs up for contradicting yourself, it doesnt surprise me, lots of people pretending they know what a hammer is.

@Jill, they were like that a few years ago, but in recent years they've been great, so I'm sorry that you had a bad experience. It's a great shop full of useful things.

I have no doubt that you rely more on Bunceís than Wickle or Closet and Botts. However, you canít deride those shops for contributing to a clone high street. They are independents - just ones that sell pretty items as opposed to necessary ones. Those who run them do live at least live in the town (though may fall under the category of not having been here for several thousands of years and a billion generations as seems to be the requisite standard on this forum). Itís all about choice. If youíre anti clone, then get on your high horse about the millions of estate agents and the likes of Argos, Fat Face, Moutain Trail (or whatever itís called), White Stuff etc.

Went to buy some lightbulbs there a couple of years back and was told - in a very grumpy tone - 'we don't sell long-life lightbulbs, our customers don't want them and it's a passing fad'.
None of which was true then or now. Made me rather concerned about their knowledge and/or attitude to customers. Never been back.
