Junk quality, over priced tat.

I rarely set foot in the place. My F-in-Law needed an outdoor light for a rental property. I lined up the whole outdoor light selection and reckoned that not one would last much moor than a week when exposed to the elements, before corrosion set in. Total shite!

Popped around the corner to the local elec wholesalers to buy a proper light.

Yep totally agree, I try and avoid the place, gone downhill very fast. Lots of tools made cheap abroad which last about a week, I bought a big socket set, one of the ratchets broke after two uses, cheap rubbish most of it. Bought many boxed items over the past few years and most of the time parts were missing when I unpacked them. Independants you get better quality but pay for it which is fine because most of the time I want stuff that lasts a while.
