Ordered kitchen in July from

Ordered kitchen in July from B and Q in Waalsend July 23rd. A week before delivery we were told to chose another cooker as they could no longer get it having had our money for 8 weeks. It's now December and still have no Cooker.. absolute joke

I was delighted by the

I was delighted by the service I received at B & Q Eastleigh today when your colleague, James, went above and beyond. We travelled to the store to purchase Verve compost but although the website said there was a large stock, this was not on display. James not only went and collected the three bags we required from the warehouse but also helped further by lifting the bags into the boot of our car. James deserves a Gold Star for his helpful attitude to his Job and his customers. Thank you James.

I visited my local B&Q store

I visited my local B&Q store in Honeypot Lane Stanmore 3 times yesterday 06 /8 /20 and spent £24:30 £31:65 and &22:05 totalling £77.On each occasion I asked for help as I purchased topsoil and large garden pebbles and plants .I am elderly with an arthritic back and 2 hip replacements .On the first 2 occasions 2 very nice friendly young gentlemen helped me .On the last occasion at 17:06 pm an middle aged gentleman with glasses helped me but was very rude to me saying he did not have to help me .I informed him that I had visited the store already twice that and had got some help to which he replied that they do not have to help you but I allow them .I was wearing a mask and kept my distance . I will not be shopping at B&q again instead I will visit Homebase where the staff are more helpful

My partner and I visited our local B&Q in the Greenwich Peninsula last week to purchase some plants for our patio. We were assisted by one of your employee called Sam who works in the Garden section. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and very patient with us :) You have got an asset working in your establishment.

I went to B&Q on frien Barnet

I went to B&Q on frien Barnet retail park and was helped above and beyond by a lovely young guy called Edjoi this guy was unbelievably helpful with a great, calm attitude just wanted to give him a massive thumbs up. However when I asked another member of staff by the name of Shane if I could speak to a manager I was asked what is it about my reply was does it matter he went and got me a manager and she was equally as good as Edjoi. I then find out Shane is a manager and he found it hilarious when I asked him why he didn’t tell me that he was management. My point to all of this is that customer service to me is extremely important and two members of your staff were fantastic however SHANE is not and let’s the rest of his team down. Maybe some customer service training is required for Shane or maybe just make Edjoi manager instead. I’ve run my own business for 25 years and if a member of my staff behaved how Shane did they would be getting their p45.

My husband and I built our own house in 1994. Money was tight. We purchased a lot of items from your store in Leigh. Not sure whether this a good thing for you, every item we purchased is still working now 25 years later. Thank you for your quality.

Thanks so much to Niro at B&Q

Thanks so much to Niro at B&Q in Hayes for your helpful, friendly professional service, Niro is a credit to B&Q.
I had a appointment with Niro to design a new kitchen, myself and my daughter went and spent over two hours with Niro who was amazing, he was not like a typical sales person trying to sell you as much as he could but advised us on our best options that suited us. After looking a the drawings he did suggest for us to go back home and to check all measurements before buying our kitchen which we did. The measurement were not correct on two sections and when we went back the following day we met up with Niro and explained this to which Niro had to design the kitchen again, I felt bad and apologized for this but once again his customer service was fantastic. He is a credit to B&Q and needs to be recognised for this.

I went into B&Q in Fakenham

I went into B&Q in Fakenham to have a tin of paint mixed. I needed enough to paint a wall which had been re-plastered. I got paint home and applied it to the corner of the wall to finish off first coat. It was not the colour I had expected. it was about 3 shades darker. I rang the store and spoke to an employee who told me 1. You need to go back to the same store as had originally mixed it as the machines are different. 2. We have changed the base paint. 3. The colour will have changed since you had original mixed. (It was 2015, but the colour remainder of the paint in the tin went on the same colour). This paint by the way was non-refundable as was mixed.
I went into B&Q in Norwich and was served by a lovely young lady, Steph. She managed to find out what the problem was. After doing several samples from the old tin of paint against what I had been sold, she discovered that the guy who had mixed the paint in Fakenham had not checked the actual code of the paint that I purchased. He had mixed 2and half litres of a sample pot, the first I had tried. I had bought the second sample so there was not many to choose from. He chose the first on the list. Steph was brilliant and so nice. She took the time to ensure I came out of B&Q in Norwich with the correct paint, Well done Steph.
Not so well done man in Fakenham branch.

I Visited B&Q St Helens

I was returning some tiles that I had bought by mistake(wrong size) I had been online the previous night to order the correct tiles for “Click & Collect from another store to receive a call this morning to advise they were not available. I rang customer service and was advised that due to the current offer of 3 for 2 items had expired I could not benefit from this even though I had purchased the items online and paid for them before this expired. The adviser was helpful but was tied by their policy etc he did manage to order again for me Click & Collect but at two different stores to enable me to get the tiles I wanted.
However I received another call later fro Liverpool to say they weren’t in stock again !!! I went along to St Helens where I returned my original purchase and to collect two packs of the three that I needed again to find only one was in stock!!! I was dealt with by Callum who was really helpful and understanding of the situation and was able to resolve this and was able to come to a solution to enable me to still get the tiles I needed at no extra cost. He was most helpful and his customer service skills were fantastic

I visited B & Q

I visited B & Q Taunton

Having purchased a Lazy Spar hot tub which appeared to have a slow puncture I could get no assistance from the manufacturer. I spoke to Shell who was most helpful and tenacious whilst dealing with the manufacturer. The outcome was a replacement hot tub which arrived the following day. If B & Q do an employee of the month award then my vote goes to Shell

I visited B +Q St Helens

I visited B +Q St Helens yesterday to purchase something to seal my garden wall. It is constructed in breeze blocks. I had no idea what to use, as there are many 'sealing' products. I spoke to a couple of young men working there, they had no idea and suggested I try the building team. Apparently they where at lunch, so a lady on the till called me over. This wonderful lady Jools asked several colleagues, they all said breeze blocks are extremely porous so the sealants don't work. Undeterred Jools checked on her phone, to see if anything would work! She discovered a product called Thompson's Water Seal would work on breeze block. B +Q unfortunately didn't stock this product, so she wrote the name on a piece of paper and suggested I looked on the internet when I got home. I didn't think people like Jools still existed, she wasn't letting me go away until I was happy with the service, she's the best employee I have ever spoken to in my many years of shopping in very many shops. Brilliant!

I visited the B&Q store in

I visited the B&Q store in Essex to buy garden furniture. My discount card was 5 years out of date, which was very disappointing. Les was awesome in his customer service skills and using my IPhone he managed to transfer my existing membership to an updated discount card for OAP's. If it wasn't for Les's skills my partner would have walked away and I wouldn't have my purchases. Thank you.

I went to the Bangor branch

I went to the Bangor branch where I was served by Tina and Sophia.
I had bought a bathroom suite some 10 years ago and needed to replace the toilet seat as the hinges had broken. The model had unsurprisingly been discontinued. However, the ladies having many years experience could remember its name from the photographs of the suite back home which I had taken on my phone. They were also able to retrieve old catalogues and found a website specialising in old model spare parts..The icing on the cake was the production of two spare hinges which they had kept with other miscellaneous old items in their special cupboard just for this kind of emergency.
A major problem for me sorted by two very committed, clever and dedicated members of staff.

On Saturday 4th May l visited

On Saturday 4th May l visited my local B&Q store in Jersey with a friend to inquire about purchasing a plastic garden shed. The one on display was not the size we required. However, we were very impressed with the young man who served us by the name of Brandon. He certainly went the extra mile in relation to providing customer service. Brandon answered all our queries, he then went on line to show us what else B&Q had available. This was the best customer experience that we have received by a member of the B&Q staff. We do hope that Brandon will receive recognition for his excellent service. Thank you

I used Merthyr Tydfil branch and was served by Mark,.
I was very impressed with how helpful he was when I was purchasing
A bamboo plan.
He put it on a trolley together with a number of lavender plants he picked out
For me, took them to the till and then to my car.
As I have a small car he worked wonders fitting in my plants for me.
Fabulous customer service was demonstrated. How lucky B & Q are to have
Such a proactive member of staff. Well done Mark

Great service from B and Q in

Great service from B and Q in Malvern today.
Would love to offer the name of the young girl who served us today for a patio set at 19.30hrs.
Did not get her name so this might be something HO could make sure is put on the receipt in future.
All that is on there is the manager's name Mark Jones who played no part in our transaction!
