Retail Therapy

Customer service is really important to me, and if I have had a good (or bad!) experience I like to share it.  There are some shops I refuse to set foot in due to poor service or care.

I have decided to compile a shopping directory of any places I mention positively on Computergirl's Musings.  These are all places I feel I have have a good retail experience with and can recommend!  Let's face it, we all love a bit of retail therapy!
