"I would like to express my gratitude for the exceptional service, guidance and advice I received today while visiting the shop to find a suitable pair of climbing shoes. I was attended to by Ryan who patiently guided me through the specifications and sizes of each model of shoe in stock and gave me the benefit of his fantastic technical knowledge, experience and preferences. He even let me try on his own personal rock shoes. He did this while directing staff to other customers and managing other activity in the store, the whole time making everything relaxed and unhurried.
"I was very pleased to be invited to try the models we had favoured on the bouldering wall, thus completing a flawless experience of a perfect sales consultancy."
"I would certainly return to your store to purchase other items. The service was over and above any other winter sports shop I have visited. I will definitely recommend Ellis Brigham Milton Keynes to my friends, family and work colleagues."
"I thought it’s only right that I email you to point out a situation when everything was perfect... I'll be coming back to your stores each time I need something. Although the internet may be cheaper in some cases, you can’t put a price on great customer service."
"I Drove an hour to this store in Milton Keynes as nobody closer stocks Arc'teryx gear. They had a limited stock but were more than happy to get samples in for me. The great service - knowledgeable, un-rushed and unbiased - from Nick meant I spent 2 hours racking up a £1200 spend which I was happy to do the way I was supported with decision making. It's a long time since I got this kind of service in a retail outlet. Quality of service is always down to the individual & Nick deserves the recognition for getting it right. Thank you."
