Card Empire: what do users think?
Jamster: Edit: thanks for the reply, I'm removing the review as the 36 ES packs were not from CE I can confirm, this was a mistake on my part I got them from another store hence the removal. The 30 packs were from CE but I guess I was just unlucky only getting 1V, apologies for the confusion.
ASTA 305: Do you have Dragon Ball Super cards?
Jadean Halliwell: to respond to the cheeky guy who responded to this it was a original card that you actually didn’t even look at. Another reason not to go there is they can’t take criticism clearly as they got defensive on reviews
Isobel Whight: Went in here for the first time to grab some cards as a little present for my partner. I was so impressed they had such a beautiful collection of Pokémon cards. I spent ages looking through them. The staff were so helpful, my partner is a different gen to what I grew up with so I got loads of help from staff of what to choose. Came up with a beautiful rainbow Umbreon vmax card and a classic charizard. Bought two packs of cards, of which he also pulled a charizard which he’s never done before, brought him so much nostalgia and joy. Thank you Card Empire, we will visit you again this week and hopefully you get some more Dialga cards in there so I can get something for myself 😁!!
Ahmet Özerli: Really friendly staff. Unlike most of the stores cards were actually fairly priced. Plenty of yugioh cards. Needs more variety on pokemon cards but overall really good store.
Charles Hunter: Friendly staff always helpful, and good prices for a pack of 50 Pokémon cards which keeps the boy happy. Thanks folks
Leon Higgin: Great place to indulge your hobby
J “PorcoR” C: Great small business trading collectiable cards. Anthony (the owner) and his lovely wife Tracey are always so welcoming as are the staff, namely the manager Alex. Great selection of single cards so you can build your decks up, as well as packs and boxes of cards from the latest releases and older stock. All competitively priced. I've found a few Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards here cheaper than on ebay. They also buy cards for cash or store credit which is useful. One particular aspect I like, is that they have several collectible items, including tins and folders as well as several gift items. One thing they've started to do recently, is take special notice to customer feedback on improvement. The've removed a cabinet from the centre of the room to increase floor space as well as other small things. While a niche business, its a hard working small business that everyone can get behind to support!
James Jennings: Went to see how much I could get quoted on some Pokémon cards and I was offered £88 cash which was insulting for what the total was worth. I had other buyers and stores offer around £300. Prices of the cards are overpriced aswell and must be going off highest sold prices on eBay and not recently sold.Other reviews say the same so please before you sell check what what your cards are worth and don't fall for their lowball offers.I'm sure the owner will respond to this review since by judging off other reviews he doesn't like being criticised
Kieron Alexander: Matt is a legend, super knowledgable on pricing and sets. Great atmosphere and advice on growing my bulbasaur collection. Will be exclusively ordering from here from now on
Nathan Thwaites: Brilliant store for buying and selling Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Products are well priced, staff are extremely knowledgeable, selection is very good (being able to buy, single cards, normal products, and other pre-packaged products made by the store, as well as cases for cards)
Ramsey Khalil: Needs more variety, not every collects pokemon cards
lee mcmahon: We’re Leeds based and made a trip over because my 9 year old has really fallen in love with Pokémon cards. He’s a real fountain of knowledge about them.We visited this week and both staff, one of them the owner were lovely. The first thing we were told was “welcome, take your time, no rush and if you need anything, just ask. We have a shop in Leeds (geek retreat) but it really doesn’t compare in size or customer service and I just wanted to say thank you for being so lovely with my son. We’ll be back as soon as we can.
Titus’s favourite toys review Super: Ummm I have not been there yet but I think it is great and also I don’t know if you can buy the cards there or trade ??? But I think it is buying right?
Samiul Hussain: Friendly and great experience
katie hughes: Good selection
Richard Hughes: Slightly chaotic and not much space to walk around when non-buyers are looking, tcg singles can be difficult to sift through but good products nonetheless. Cards can be traded for credit or cash, with good evaluations. It can get warm after awhile, so don't wear a hoodie!
Craig Campbell: Great for finding those singles missing from my Pokemon collection.
Elliot Harker: Extensive and well organised collection. Honest prices that I don’t see beaten online.
Stefaine Victoria: Visit here whenever we’re in Manchester and -as a general rule we love the shop. Great variety of cards and although the property space is small and can get very busy, the layout of the cards works well.Pricing is a bit hit and miss, some things are marked up way above the average but we always come away with some good finds.Would recommend checking cards before leaving the property as two of our cards from the cabinet had damage to the corners which wasn’t visible in the cabinet/ hard sleeves. (I will add that the staff member with the cute dog always actively gets you to check the cards to make sure you’re happy before your purchase, can’t fault them as they’re an asset to the shop however the younger guy and girl are quite standoffish and not overly friendly. Kinda get the impression they couldn’t care less if you buy something or not.)
gareth hodge: Amazing knowledge and had a great chat with the owner.

Smyths Toys Superstores: what do users think?
Omer Ismael: I was in need of an extra seat unit for my Zummi Halo Tandem, so I decided to visit the store. As I walked in, I spotted a friendly staff member named Emma. I approached her with my request, and she displayed great professionalism and a genuine willingness to assist me.Emma was dedicated to helping customers, so she immediately paused her current task and joined me in my search for the seat unit. We scoured every corner of the store, meticulously checking various sections, but to our disappointment, we couldn't locate the specific seat unit I needed.Despite Emma's best efforts, her device lacked internet access, making it challenging to find the seat unit's whereabouts. However, she didn't give up. In a resourceful move, Emma borrowed another device from her helpful colleague, enabling her to track down the seat unit I required.After a thorough investigation, Emma returned with news. She regretfully informed me that the only seat left in stock was the display model. While it had been showcased for customers to view, it was still in excellent condition. Considering the situation, I made the decision to purchase the display model, and to my delight, I received 10% discount on its price.Thanks to Emma's professionalism, dedication, and problem-solving skills, I was able to acquire the seat unit I needed at a discounted rate. I left the store feeling grateful for her exceptional assistance and satisfied with my purchase.
Becky_272: Poor staff asking for advice and staff just smiled amd laughed the manger was called he was just as worse to say he wpuld sort somthing and never returned sorry but very bad never go here
Mike Watson: We went to get a new car seat when our baby grew out of her old one.Natalie helped us make the right choice. She was so knowledgeable and informative. She's a credit to the store
Rencsi Gulyás: The security guy needs training how to do his job properly. When you do shopping in other shops you will obviously have a bag with you. So I walked in with a bag filled with stuff from other places. Spent a good amount of money in this shop too but on my way out the security guy just stopped me and loudly requested me to show him the bag. When I asked him why he just told me He saw me taking something. I have opened my bag and I proved him wrong. Embarrassing me in front of other people for absolutely no reason. He has seen me? That’s too much. I will never return to this shop and I will tell others also to go to any other places but not here! He had no right to tell me he has seen me taking anything and make me feel embarrassed for something I haven’t done!
Hamza Sharker: Great shop and has a very wide variety of toys, games ext... its a kids dream
kelly: my brother walked in this store with a shopping bag which had a funko pop inside of it already but when he left the store the security guard stopped him and spoke to him with quite a loud voice saying he had stolen the funko and then took it out of my brothers bag and chucked it to the side. he then claimed that he saw my brother steal the funkopop. after, another worker came and backed up the security guard saying that he thought my brother was stealing as well? he asked if he had a reciept but he threw it away 🤦‍♀️so they wouldnt let us take the funkopop back but then the other worker checked the box and realised it wasnt their product so they gave it back and then we left but they didnt apologise or anything the other worker just said it was their job but didnt even apologise and we were in manchester for holiday but this event just ruined our holiday and put us in a bad mood for the rest of the day and it left my brother with a fear of this happening again
Seamus Corry: Great store friendly service
Brian Helps: What a way to run business phoned this store 6 times could not even be bothered to answer lost customer
Luis Baessa: Went there to colect 2 items, fistly we didn't realised were the colecting point was, until we asked a member of staff where it was, he said just behind those courtains and ran off, later we find out that he was the manager has he asked us to wait outisde in the cold when we were the next on tk be seen, stiil with us trying to explain but he wouldn't listen showing power(completely out of order) he was supporting his security (again another rude one)... even tho we us outside we wanted us to go further as the automatic doors wouldn't shut, yiur customers service os poor as both manager and security made clients felt like children... didn't bother to stick around and have a look at the regardless being my first visit...Obs: consider on changing you click and colecting point...Very bad experience for us!!!
Eva McWilliam: Amazing customer service. I am a first time mum and went in to ask for advice on what I need for a newborn and what is recommended at the moment. I was helped by Danielle in nursery and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I went in feeling overwhelmed and left feeling like I knew what I needed and a weight had been lifted. Outstanding service from Danielle :) !
Emma E: I bought a PS5 in May 2020 and the controller suddenly stopped working in less than 3 months later. I took it back and dealt with Damien on the games console counter. He was fantastic; very helpful and didn’t hesitate to just swap it for a new controller. I was in and out in a matter of minutes. Thanks! 😊
lindsay ellis: Lovely staff who were very hekpful. Very good range of toys.
Mostafa aljasem: Very bad place I don’t go again for this store I bought item and staff she said you can return on 28 daysWhen I come to nextday no body help meAnd I threw to Ben
Beth: Lovely store, wide range of LEGO and always friendly staff. Huge selection of Funko Pops also! Some quite rare ones too.
Elaine Buckley: Can I just say what fantastic customer service from Smyths , I never leave reviews but felt we need to reward good customer service we are always reading bad reviews however my son bought a PS5 online and it was delivered no problem. The controller went faulty a couple of months later, we emailed Smyths who said yes bring it down for a repair or replace, without any question they dealt with us in a fantastic manner and replaced his handset. Cant remember the guys name on that counter where all the gaming things are but what a lovely helpful guy and the lady we asked when we entered the store very helpful well done SMYTH's and your staff.
Steven Mcloughlin: Son loves new ps5
Ian Williams: Great store
Victoria Moss: I had a completely wasted journey here thanks to the stock checker saying 12 were in stock when there actually wasnt. There is no one way system in place so aisles can become crowded. The female member of staff who tried to help me was very nice and tried to locate the stock with no luck unfortunately.There is a large free carpark outside
soraia sousa a mães dos kikis: love this place
Iram Khan: Shocking customer service. The manager Sean has a serious attitude problem and isn’t helpful at all!We bought a bike online that turned out to be too small for my tall 3yo, I called them beforehand and they said “yes bring it in, as long as it’s in good condition we can exchange it”. However when we went in, they completely denied ever saying that and told us that we’ve basically just wasted £100 and there’s nothing they can do. Sean was incredibly rude and unhelpful. He wasn’t even trying to be friendly or nice. Manners don’t cost anything!!!We went to the Bury store straight after and they agreed to the exchange with no issues whatsoever!! Their staff was the complete opposite to the Salford store, they even helped us find the right size bike for my son and ordered it for us.Will not be stepping into the Salford store ever again.
Steve Trotter: I visited this shop recently, I found that at least 50% of the adult shoppers didn't wear masks or conform to social distancing, although a security guard was on the entrance door????
