You'd always have to go on to the UK site to get better pictures. Even the way they do offers seemed to be better laid out on the UK site.

Like a lot of UK businesses, they seem to forget about their Irish stores or that Ireland is a different country with different laws etc.
B&Q don’t even have a website for Ireland, Halfords only got rid of GB stickers and yellow number plate screw covers in the last few years.

Was it Game, when they were shutting down here, gave Irish staff info with UK legislation? I remember some company doing it.

They probably realised it was daft having a website where nobody can actually buy anything. I would not expect they are going to go to any effort here. I think they'll be closed for until restrictions are lifted.

I remember being in TK Maxx and they were selling L plates and P plates for your car. L is fair enough, but P plates are only for UK. You'd wonder if they ever sold one?

HMV didn't honour any Irish vouchers after they closed down. They were taken over and thought they would, but no. Apparently there was a small window that other stores accepted them but I was away.

I guess things like those mentioned above will all be tightened with Brexit.

Very selected (i.e. nothing!). I do like having the option of buying from Argos, but whoever is running their Irish operations hasn't a clue. The web site has been ignored for years and is held together with sticky tape.

They deliver f all here, as is noted advice the irish website is **** and wasn't updated like the UK onecwas when they spruced up their fonts and imaging. It's not even optimised for mobile FFS.

Can't even get a lot of stuff delivered to parcel motel from the UK site either.

I ordered a wardrobe last week. Got sent a text to arrange delivery. Spent hours on hold on the delivery line. Anyone have any success with it?
