Maplin Electronics

2a, 108 Eastern Ave, Gloucester GL4 4LP, UK – 0333 400 9675

Easily accessible site with plenty of parking even at weekends. Very helpful staff who know what they're talking about. Well stocked with a good range of gizmos and parts. General higher prices than online but they are slowly getting more competitive.

Plenty of parking and easy to access from Eastern Avenue. Stocking a selection of electrical bits, connectors and wires, but also things like powerline homeplugs (for sending internet to other rooms), modems, keyboards and HDD/data storage + fun gadgets, I got a StormTrooper Bluetooth speaker in the sales. Prices aren't overly competitive but they do offer click n collect if you're in a rush. Best thing about this store is the staff, always friendly, willing to help and not condescending/techy nerds (not that there's anything wrong with us techy nerds).

Currys PC World featuring Carphone Warehouse

Eastern Avenue Retail Park, Eastern Ave, Gloucester GL4 3EA, UK – 0344 561 0000

Had a manufacturer's fault with recently purchased TV. No problem: I produced receipt and walked out with new TV. On another occasion I needed information on something they sold but I had not bought there. Again, no problem. They told me what I needed to know.

Staff aren't always able to answer questions. I've been told a few times now (not just in this branch) to look online for info required. And they didn't have the mobile phone I wanted in stock because they have carphone warehouse there. I specifically wanted to buy it from curry's pc world because it was on offer and hubby had a voucher.

Stationery and Office Supplies

Office Outlet Gloucester

108 Eastern Ave, Gloucester GL4 4LP, UK – 0344 472 5484

I received brilliant service from The assistant store manager heather. I could see from walking into the store that they were short staffed, yet heather went above and beyond her duty to make me feel welcomed. However I did not appreciate being asked for my email when I was checking out. The prices could be looked at, as I could of spent my money else where on a cheaper ink. However, after hearing that heather will be leaving, I will be taking my custom Elsewhere

Helpful and friendly staff I went in to get a new printer and was met with quite a selection, I was helped by a member of staff that was knowledgeable on which would be suitable for me. Came away with a printer at a good price and was easy to set up.

Proper Job Gloucester

UNIT 3, Eastern Avenue Retail Park, Eastern Ave, Gloucester GL4 3EA, UK – 01452 526071

A discount store specialising in DIY and home ware. Small but with a wide range of items. Neat & tidy layout. Highlights for me: cheap button batteries, nice tools and some interesting garden toys and accessories.

A great place for a lot of home needs. If you're a home DIY'er, there's plenty for you. Lots of basic items for all the home, for pets, the garden, your car, for arts and crafts and school.

B&M Home Store

Unit 2, Gloucester Retail Park, Eastern Avenue, Gloucester, Gloucestershire GL4 3BY, UK – 0330 838 9448

Love having a shuffle around, always find something I need that I didn't even know I needed! Good for the basics too, sugar/tea/drinks and often have items you won't find in main supermarkets (like Twinkies and Twizzlers). Staff are friendly for the most part. Downside is with only half a dozen tills the queues can get a little long.

Definitely good place to grab those bits and pieces, great range of products and very good prices! You can't go wrong..
