    Does anyone know a cheap online shop, who also have a shop/showroom of some sort, where the goods can be collected from in person.

    I have a local dealer, who said that if the competiton met these requirements, then he would match the price, regardless of location (in the U.K)

    cheers

    empire direct!!

    You ring empire direct - havn't got it in stock. ring the bricks and mortor Empire Electrical, they have it in stock and will match they're online sibling (+carriage of £8)

    Richer sounds charge an extra 10% on thier on-line prices at thier shops + £5 (I think) per item (even if the carriage on the website is cheaper)

    Also, you could look at Jones of Oakwood (Leeds). And the self-styled leaders in DVD chipping, techtronics, have a shop/showroom somewhere in Lincolnshire. Evidently, they, too, will allow you to collect at web prices.

    I've always though Jones of Oakwood were super-expensive.

    The Oakwood shop was, and thier other shop opposite seven-oaks in Vicar Lane is a sony franchise

    Try Sound & Vision at Bolton. They guarantee to be the cheapest in the country and don't charge P&P. Top quality service I've just bought a DVD player from them. (Price matched to Richer Sounds who were only taking orders as they had sold out!)

    I bought my THX kef series 1 from them last year and they were very good. The only problem I had they had short changed me on the speaker cable by a few meters. I had measured the cables pretty accuratly so had hardly any room for mistakes.

    It took them ages with lots of frustrated calls to get it sorted out.
