    Angry Halfords rant!!!

    I was in Halfrauds on Saturday,bearly ever go in there but i only needed a bulb 4 the Golf so i thought i may as well.
    I was with my dad & while i was looking 4 the bulb my dad was noseying in the clearance basket.On my way over 2 the counter i had a nose aswell. There was lots of shte in there buti also came across interior spray paint(various colours),primer & laquer only 3quid a can .

    As i was planning on doing my center console again soon anyway i thought i may a well pick some u.So i bought 1 of each (1 primer,1White paint,1 laquer).Went 2 the counter & paid then went on my way.
    So on Sunday i began sraying the console & a few other bits.I then began 2 realise tat i wasnt goin 2 have enough primer or colour 2 finish the job.
    So on my way home from work last night i stopped off 2 get some more.
    When i went 2 pay 4 the2 cans,thecashier anounced 11.49 please...???
    I then began 2 argue that that id paid 3quid a can 2days earlier.
    Anyway i argued this with various staff & i even producedmy previous reciep & they all kept saying that its not up2 them....thats what the barcode says & thats the price 2 pay!!!
    They were trying 2 charge me 8.49 for the white paint!!

    So as not 2 bore all anymore i ended up paying fullwack 4 it as i had already started the job in that colour!...I was furious!!!
    As i walked out i told them about there nick name (Halfrauds) & that they had just lived up2 there nick-name 7 that i wouldnt be stepping foot in2 another Halfords store again .

    I hope i dont run out again .

    Anyway rant over...moral of the story.....Halfords are shite!!!! .

    their tools are very good, service can be some what lacking but what can you expect tbh. some good bits and some bad bits.

    i find aslong as you know what you want from them its fairly painless, whatever you do dont ask the staff for advice, they only work there because McDonalds wouldnt hire them.

    It wasnt a special offer,it was clearance,just junk,tool kits with tools missing,bust wrappers,etc....
