I think that in the times that are in it we should support retailers who create Irish jobs and pay Irish taxes over Internet purchases where the price is only marginal


Curry's/PC World is hardly as Irish as Apple Pie. I'm sure if this was your primary factor when purchasing goods, there are plenty of independent stores who will sort you out. There was never a commitment to Irish consumers by Curry's/PC World over the 20 years that I have been interested in buying electronics. In fact, it was pretty diabolical, the price differences between ROI and N.I. stores a few years back (after accounting for currency exchange rates, the customer service, the upselling of unneccessary warranties, the preying on the technologically ignorant to oversell) was shocking. This forum and Declan in particular convinced me that the disdain they held Irish consumers was something they were looking to change.

And look where we are. So, go independent if you want to avoid the Internet. Your "Support Irish" defence of Curry's is misguided.

I don't think it's due to Declan getting the axe that people are stopping supporting them.
I think it's because a company who used to provide top rate customer service on here as a result of Declan, no longer provide that same service.
Had the customer service remained the same, I think you'd find most posters here praising the staff still.
This hasn't happened which is clearly indicated by their crap response rate.
