This brand used to have a high street store near me but they closed down suddenly. Thankfully they have a comprehensive online shop where I can still buy the same range of products. The brand sell books, art and craft supplies, stationary, toys, gifts and more. They are a bit similar to WH Smiths except their prices are much reduced.
The brand sell items that are in demand and up to date so expect to see the latest promotional items from popular movie franchises, best selling books and items relating to popular trends. I particularly like their art and craft supplies as I have an artistic hobby that requires I used a lot of paintbrushes and paints. You can buy large collections of good quality brushes and sponges as well as full sets and individual colours of artist's paint (acrylic, oil or watercolour).
They offer an alternative cheap book site to Amazon.co.uk since they have an extensive range of books for both children and adults. They also have a range of local interest books which are unusual. Audio books are also available.
The site requires you to create an online account after which you can add items to your virtual basket. Standard delivery to your home is only £2.99 which is pretty cheap in comparison to many similar online stores. You can also choose to collect from a high street store near to you, if there is one, and this is free. Next day delivery is £6.99. There are frequently offers available on the site which give you free delivery, money off a certain spend amount and more. These are attractive offers to go ahead with a purchase.
I have always had quick and satisfactory deliveries which arrive in 3-5 days after ordering and/or dispatch. Items are well packed and invoiced. Everything I have ordered from the firm has been good quality.
I would recommend this site to anyone who uses craft supplies, anyone with school age children, those who enjoy books, those who are looking for inexpensive but attractive gifts and those who use a lot of office stationary.
I have bought from the Works many times, the site is really easily laid out with very clear menu's which help finding items very easy, The Works is a store that sells a huge array of items that change almost daily so for me I find it very important that I can browse easily as I am often browsing for ideas rather than knowing what I am looking for.
I use this site a lot for books and games as gifts or for myself, because I can not easily carry them due to their weight I prefer to have them delivered. What I love about this site is that they offer a huge array of delivery options, from free delivery to next day and all at a very reasonable cost. They also do click and collect if you have a store near you. Delivery is always really fast and I have never had a problem with the parcels being poorly wrapped.
No only does the site have a lot of really good value items, they always have offers on ranging from a reduced items, multi buys, a certain discount or often free delivery even on small orders! What I really find great about this site is that they advertise and show these offers really clearly, they are always highlighted on the home page with clear information about the offer but there is also a special offers section where they are all clearly listed as well, this is really handy if you are looking for items in the same multi buy offers.
Although you never know what you can buy in The Works I find that is half the excitement of shopping on the page, finding what exciting offers I am going to find that day!
I would have no problems recommending this site to anyone, it's very easy to use and all information is really easy to locate and simple to understand. The company has never let me down and items have always been as described.
