Bought my first hiking boots. One of the customers was a lovely lady who advised me what to look for. The staff were overall friendly but not very helpful despite I mentioned I need advice. …

Helpful staff but many products on the website are not available in store. Should definitely introduce a click and collect service, I couldn’t buy an item from the website because I had no safe place to receive it. I wish I could have had it sent to a blacks store then I could have bought the item I wanted

Staff are rude and don’t know what they are talking about. They would say anything to get you to buy something instead of advising you properly. I also overheard another customer returning something they bought because it was ill advised.

Opening times on the door are at foot level, which is not very helpful, Please address this. Other than that they have sales on fairly frequently but don’t expect a lot of knowledge from the JD staff.

Usually you get the basic service from shop to shop but I was very impressed by this store. I needed to buy a set of clothings and shoes and I got to speak to most of the staff there and every single one of them made us feel so welcome. Brilliant work Ahmed, Peggy, Titch and Carl.

Customer service is amazing. The manager is a good man, amazing variety of products and referrals for places you can get products if they don’t have in store. The shop is well kept, clean and the standards are always perfect. I always enjoy shopping here and make the commute because this is the best blacks shop in London.

Apparently the assumption is that women don’t need walking shoes as much as men. The range and options of shoes and boots is barely anything compared to the men’s section. I see no reason for this. The men’s shoe options were great and …

Really helpful and patient staff. We spent 2 hours in the store buying a bag and a pair of shoes and the team were really helpful and knowledgeable. I wish I had taken their names so I could mention them directly. The offers in store also meant they were great value.

Lovely staff; polite, patient and charming. The manager, Wahab, immediately and kindly said he’d resolve my problem. Then I had time, help and more patience from the lovely Ahmed Nur. I’m now very happy with my new Scarpa walking boots.
They were so helpful and made my day. Many thanks.

They have some good discounts at the moment and so we stepped in to have a look and am glad we did. The customer service was excellent. If you give them your email address and accept to them sending the bill to you by email, you are then entitled to a 15% discount next time you shop with them. Credit cards accepted including Amex.
