Adultery international best seller

WHSmith Lincoln, Paulo Coelho’s latest book not on display anywhere, member of staff asked.

No, not in stock, sold out.

Had they sold out, had it ever been in stock?

Claimed it was not on their system. A blatant lie, as it is shown on their system, and if not shown, how could they say had been in stock but sold?

Could two copies be ordered? No, not possible. Another blatant lie, as it is possible to order books at WHSmith, but not worth the effort as quicker and cheaper to order from Amazon.

Store then advised, get someone to order on-line and collect from store. Yet another blatant lie, it is not possible to order on-line and have delivered to shop, and why bother, easier, quicker, and cheaper to order from Amazon.

On-line, WHSmith Adultery full price, in store, if you can find in store, half price, plus can use 20% discount voucher.

Manager asked for. Manger on holiday. Acting manager?

Just when you think, it cannot possibly get any worse at WHSmith, it does.

To date, WHSmith Lincoln worst of a bad bunch, and the others have been bad. Ignorant staff who do not know well known authors, who do not know latest books, who cannot even spell.

Adultery, published last week, an international best-seller from an international best selling author, WHSmith has it on special offer at half price, only they do not have in stock, claim it cannot be ordered, let alone not as one would expect on prominent display!

If you have an international best-seller on special offer, do you not have it in stock on prominent display?

It is little wonder WHSmith a failing High Street chain, permanent fire sales. The only surprise is that they remain in business.
