"How to drive customers away from Cambridge "

A review of Maplin Electronics by Graham.F.Lewendon written on Saturday 28th of November 2009



Just seen your comment.

Clearly you live in cambridge If you lived outside of Cambridge but worked in an outer part of Cambridge you might - Just might have some Idea how useless the buses and trains are to travel around between 17:30 and 18:45 weeknights on if you need to get stuff after working a full day parking a car anywhere near the old store is about as funny as pointing a 12 bore at own head and pulling trigger. The Beehive is better winning hands down due to its free car parking and being very close to comet, PC world, Toys are us,Asda & Tesco all who are major competition selling many of the same product line. I live in a town within 35 mins car jouney of Cambridge were there is little real compertition more a Ollagoperly (shops privately agree not to undercut each other if selling same item sure its hard to prove but you have heard expression "Gut feeling" If I had to use old store in Cambridge it would only be cost effective to do so if someone was a passenger in car wanting to vist store who was registered disabled with a parking exhemption ticket so able to park outside store on double yellow lines. Never forget it is the customer who spends the cash that pays the shops rates. I would not use it I would rather go down M11 to Harlow were I know town blindfold and where theres free parking at Maplins

IT WOULD BEAT BUS AND TRAIN STILL BOTH ON COST AND TIME; Not to mention reliability and I would have time to eat main days meal as well! .
