Report - What are the best and worst shops in the country?
A new poll has revealed the best and worst shops in the UK based on a range of criteria.
The Which? report asked nearly 9500 consumers to rate their favourite shops on price, store environment, customer service and the range and quality of products.
The highest-performing retailer is on a winning streak – it also came top last year – but the lowest performing shop of 2014 doesn’t seem to have learnt its lesson.
It has retained its place at the bottom of the list.
Which? editor Richard Headland, said: “With independent stores on the up in our annual survey, it shows a big name isn’t everything as consumers look for quality in both products and service.
“If retailers can get their products right, along with excellent customer service and a great shopping environment, customers will keep coming back through their doors.”
