Talk about anything to do with shopping within livingston. From new shops coming to Livingston or old shops that used to be here.

I noticed today that there were builders in the JJB store in the retail park so out of curiosity I went up and asked the guy what was going on and he told me that the were preparing the unit for HobbyCraft who are moving in in the next couple of weeks

    They're very expensive for card making stuff, unless they have a sale, and it seems to be the same for for most of their stock. When I visited the Edinburgh branch they were selling card making stuff above the RRP. I only bought from there because a nice lady gave me a discount voucher she'd cut out of a newspaper, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. Apparently they have a policy of employing people who don't have a clue about the stuff they sell, so that they won't stand and natter with customers. I had experience of that in the Edinburgh branch when I asked a shop assistant if they sold brads. She just looked a bit vacant so I told her they were basically fancy split pins. She still had no idea what I was on about :?

    I'll check out their sales but I'll mainly stick to online craft shopping.
