Ordered a few books to be delivered to my local store, but it didn't say when they would be ready to be picked up ?

They send an email when they've been dispatched.

Many thanks, never ordered from them before :D

Their online service is pathetic. Ordered a box of Lego on 11th Nov and they didn't desptach to the store until the 25th. It was the start of December before I got the thing after numerous visits to the store and e-mails to Customer Services, who, btw, told me their suppliers were holding up delivery of my 'book'.

never buy from them because of constant hassle. Not really good prices and can do without hassle

Too late unfortunately. I got the Guiness Book of Records from Amazon at £10 plus postage :(

I went in today to buy a purchase I had planned for a couple of weeks. I checked the price on line before I set out, which was the same price I had seen in-store for the item previously, only to find the price in-store had now been jacked up by 50%. Presumably this is some business model designed to screw the almost-last-minute-shoppers who can no longer use the internet in time for Xmas.

Sadly for WHS, there is an Argos round the corner, and my smart phone told me that they had they same item and at the old price. So WHS have lost my custom today and probably in the future as well.

I'm not going to vote on this, there may be some bargains, but you should be aware that some of these 70% offs are quite likely to be against temporarily inflated prices.

WHSmith online is not related to WHSmith stores thats why the price is always different.

I was aware that a store price might differ from an internet price. But I had seen this item in store for £8.50. I went on-line to check availability in-store. For the reasons you have given I was not able to do that, but it did show me that a retailer using the WHS name was still selling this item for £8.50. To find it in-store today at £13.99 struck me as a bit naughty.

Waste of mouse clicks
Usual trick. Claim "up to" big discounts but base them on the RRP - which no one charges anyway.
About time quoting these ridiculous RRPs was banned

Voted cold - based on the above, and past bad experiences with ordering from this shower a crap in the past.

Check the prices against Amazon before voting hot or cold.

Terrible company to deal with. I placed a very large online order and when delivered much of it was incorrect or damaged, contacted them and they told me I had 2 options; take the whole order to my post office and send it back (it was a huge order!) or take it to my nearest store - no collection available as it's not their policy.

I decided to drive to the store only to face major hassles there too. They claimed head office were supposed to let them know I was coming and apparently didn't so they tried telling me they couldn't accept the order back! After some persuasion they agreed to take the order and gave a refund.

They really could do with a customer relations revamp, as the general attitude of the staff I encountered (both online and instore) stank.

These companies that cannot sort out a comfortable relationship between their on-line and high street presences will die. For certain.

Cast your mind back 20 years, WHS was a dominant high street force in the world of books, cds and videos. Huge amount of goodwill in the brand name. Where was Amazon? Contrast that with now. Even in 2010 WHS haven't got their high street and on-line ducks in a row. And Amazon is bigger than WHS ever was.

Or compare with Argos. The reserve and collect system is a fantastic way of driving internet traffic into the shop. Fair play to them.

But look at the line of disgruntled WHS customers here. They haven't got long, have they? It is probably already too late. If you are holding their shares, don't.

Yes I agree terrible to purchase from
psp game odered on line and paid for never came back into stock
Mario kart Wii box on the shelf no game in stock room
Bloody awful shop !
#17
Thank you op, got some bargains to put away for next Christmas :)
#18
The only problem I've ever had with WHS is convincing the shop assistants that I've already paid online when I pick up instore. Apart from that, it's cheap and secure with fast delivery. I don't recognize any of the problems that people are seeing here at all (except for the overpriced RRP, but let's face it, Amazon are the worst on the planet for that).

So true. I bought a filofax onlne and it was £20-30 cheaper, but the great thing is if you want to return anything you can return to store. I still have a voucher from early jan :)

If they're not related how can you order online and they'll deliver to the store?? HMV online prices are different from the store and they are definitely related.

I have had some bargains from WHS - usually when they sell off the craft stuff at 75% off after Xmas - but they are hopeless at customer service. I have lost count of the number of games I have ordered and then after 3 months had the order cancelled. Never buy from WHS online if it is something you really want or need, there is a good chance it will not materialise.

Although I've never shopped online with them, that is one thing that gets me when you ever walk in their shop with their "50% off!!! and 75% off!!!" offers. They're stuff that's priced about the same everywhere else - often slightly cheaper everywhere else. Maybe the MRPs are that high, but it still feels like they're trying to hoodwink you.

So it's a bit like the boy cried wolf, if they ever do come with a great offer, you don't notice it, because it's hidden in between all the "fake" great offers, and you're a bit "whatever" about taking a closer look.

In the stores they have things like Cadburys Clusters hanging bag, sale £1.29 down from £2.79 RRP!
Ridiculous fiddling, I never pay more than a quid for these when on offer in the supermarkets....
