  • I love places like this! You could spend hours looking at everything that they have to offer, so much variety. Well worth a trip down to see Simba as well 😊
  • Nice place full of curiosities, however a corner unit from Argos was seen to be sold for £155 but nee in Argos it was x3 less and brand new, staff seem unaproachable, just drinking tea on reception area. Well overpriced for the quality of items on sale within the labyrinth of areas within this store. Nice building!
