Why customer service is so important to us

14 March 2016

I have been buying computer hardware from a particular on-line store for years, for my businesses and for home. Up until recently I’ve been very happy with them; I’ve ordered stuff and it’s arrived. And the prices are competitive. But it’s not until something goes wrong that you really appreciate a great business. Sadly, that’s not […]

Ooh…Look What We’ve Done In Our Garden!

9 September 2014
