a big thank you brilliant service

Post by al57 » Fri Nov 02, 2018 6:58 am

on arriving back home from top end ,i would like to put a big thank you out to the men that helped me with some info for my trip and also Craig and staff at Craig fishing warehouse .he was super helpful with what i was looking for ,gave a complete stranger a disscount on his lures and threw in a new bling classic for me to try down here in hervey bay ,couldnt help enough .that is the kind of old fashioned service that keeps people going back and makes them tell other fishoes to use this shop . i will be using him for fishing gear online even being in qld .on another note complete opposite at outdoor world in darwin city,just a number if you werent known .

Good to see a compliment about good service :mrgreen: I shop at both these stores and have never had any issues ,if anything I would rate the service from Outdoor a bit better . Yes fishing shops can be a bit "clicky" till they get to know you , which isn't good for the one off customers . :o

I've shopped at fishing and outdoor world for 17 years, and they've been great since day 1, and I've been into Craigs once, and also great service. N trust me, the more you shop, and the friendlier you are, the discounts are abundant..

I've found that if you want to be a number, BCF is the go. ;) Sean and Jason at Anaconda are also really helpful since my first time in there as well.

Need to run a poll on favourite tackle shops and why.

I've always had excellent service from both but will admit I use Craigs' during the week and Fishing & Outdoor World on the weekends, BFC for specials or because I'm going past.

Both shops will beat BFC prices and are always cheaper when it comes to the regular off the shelf stuff.

I found Fishing and Outdoor world to best tackle store in Darwin. I always had great service there.

Me too mate I'm guessing you must've stumbled on a newbie at the counter al I've never paid full price in my life there ( over 30 yrs of going there... ever since I was buying nilsie spearheads and vibrotails as a little tacker ) :D

Pretty much nobody will beat them on shimano prices. 8)

Craigs is also good though and both stores have top blokes to have a yarn with :mrgreen:
