Pros

Friendly and helpful staff. Everyone works well together as a team and wants everyone to progress and learn.

Cons

More recently, it seems the business as a whole has become more profit focused this is compared to its previous main focus of customer service above everything, so it seems. Within my local store, we don't agree with this.
