Discriminatory

1
Went into this shop this afternoon. Shop owner was very rude and tried to force me to put on a mask. When told I was exempt, he just discriminated against and said 'no, you're not'. Very poor customer service, would not recommend at all. Books overpriced in any case.

Awful - discrimination against the mentally ill

I was discriminated against for not wearing a mask. I am exempt as I’m on the autistic spectrum and it causes me a lot of distress. I was just told in their shop I’m not on the spectrum, I.e I’m not exempt. I was made to feel very uncomfortable, they have lost a customer. Really terrible service.

Don't bother going here.

Really awful experience all round. Very rude staff and the owner was even worse. Made us both feel extremely uncomfortable and unwelcome from the moment we stepped into the shop. We followed their rules of mask wearing and turning off our mobile phones before stepping in yet he tried to guilt/shame us into buying from them and followed up with rude comments when we didn't have cash as they don't accept card. There are so many better independent businesses to support instead of this one, we will NEVER be returning. Books were wildly overpriced anyways, they have modern second hand books at near RRP?! Really unhappy with how poorly we were treated for absolutely no reason. Find somewhere else to shop.

not a welcoming environment

Good range of books - but what is the point of having notices up everywhere ordering people to turn off their phones, when you have God awful jazz music blasting out and are simultaneously listening to the news? I soon found myself back in the street.
