shopped in your store friday 18th sept. i purchased a second pair of walking boots.
i wanted to compliment you on your staff and high level of customer service. the young man who served us was extreemly helpful and knowledgeable.he ordered a pair for me which arrived two days later.
having worked in retail for over 12 years i know how difficult it can be to get dedicated staff.
my compliments to you and your staff. please pass on my thanks to the young man, i dont know his name but he may remember us, in particular my dog Hector who shook his hand.

I visited the store on the 15th of October, I'd previously spent 2 hours visiting various other outlets to try to find walking books for my 10 year old, but everything was just not quite right. Last attempt was Blacks, why didn't I go there first! Had probably the best customer service I have had in many a year, you could tell the chap who served us knew his stuff, he showed my lad how to tie his boots differently for a different fit and it was a revelation (seriously try it). Anyway, next time I need boots I'll be going back there and looking for that chap again, unfortunately his name isn't on the receipt otherwise I'd have dropped in in here. Blacks, keep hold oh him he's a star! Thankyou whoever you were that servered me at 17:33 on the 15th of October
