Sports Direct - I won the argument

I bought the £5 Adidas Salma tracksuit bottoms for my sister on Xmas eve as a 'stocking filler' , so her pile looked bigger. However when I wrapped them, they were 3 sizes smaller then the coat-hanger tab.

I went back in on Boxing Day to exchange them like-for-like, but they said I must pay the excess as the price went back up (I wasn't having that!). I was told to take my chances by contacting head office via a posting form - I refused as emails are free.

I got a reply yesterday from head office, stating I can take them back and exchange like-for-like, accompanied with printed email.

I know it was a lot of trouble to go to over £5, but it was principle and the staff arrogance that I wanted to challenge...

At my local one they arent neds or chavs as such but think they are some form of athletes talking about how they spent over an hour in the gym using the weights and how these girls they know invited them for drinks so they are going to """" them etc.

Well done you. In my local store they all seem to be french for some reason. Ive had a run in with them before over a t shirt that had a dirty mark on. I dont know what it is about that shop but there are loads of items of clothing with rips and dirt marks all over them. When ever I buy something from there now I always go over it with a fine tooth comb.

...But I'm not like that, hence the reason I went above them straight to Head Office. I know not all are like it, but most are.
