Went in for some running shoes. The chap there recommended a particular size and got me on the running machine for gait analysis to assess my gait and then again to confirm my chosen shoe was working well for me. And the price was about half what I feared I'd have to pay!

From my experience the service here has been exceptional, with very knowledgeable staff. However today my brother had been preparing for his Duke Of Edinburgh, he had done his practise about two months ago using some fuel he had bought from Snow and Rock for use in a trangia. He said to me that he had trouble with the fuel on his practise expedition as the flames were very high and smokey, to the extent his teacher had asked him to put it out and he had to eat his food cold. On closer inspection of the bottle he had been sold a bottle of petroleum spirits rather than methylated spirits. This is why his cooking had been such an issue. After consulting with him and my mother I was informed that they were given this bottle by a member of staff at Snow and Rock, after explaining he was using a trangia and going on DofE. Anyone with any sense would know that petroleum spirits is completely unsuitable for a Bronze DofE expedition and I imagine the ability to sell a £15 bottle of petroleum to a clueless child and his mother rather than the £2 bottle of methylated spirits they should have been sold, was all too tempting for this particular member of staff.
