NOTHING IS TOO MUCH FOR FIRST BOOKSHOP!

We are all becoming accustomed to an impersonal world – one of faceless call-centres, computerised answering services, indefinite periods of waiting on line to speak to a real person, who is rarely able to solve our problem when we finally get to speak to them, of internet websites which seem to offer everything but the service that we really need and are incapable of dealing with exceptions. And so it is more than refreshing – it is a cause to celebrate – when you stumble upon an outfit like First Bookshop UK, who offer their customers all the advantages of the hi-tech impersonal world without becoming impersonal. They are fast, efficient, have an easy-to-use website, but they also have the flexibility, intelligence and warmth of a small business for which nothing is too much to keep its customers happy. My thanks to Roger at First Bookshop UK for stepping in - immediately - and sorting out my problem; dealing with an exception swiftly, efficiently and with a finesse that the big boys of our impersonal world just could not match.

BOOKS CHEAPER THAN AMAZON ?

Yes here they often are, when paying with a credit card or debit card (not by Book Tokens). Our long standing affiliation with the provider of our Online Bookstore, enables you to shop for books for less. Keeps any profits within the UK too, also paying all Government Taxes due. Noticed how Amazon's book prices seem to have gone up recently, bet that's not reflected in their tax payments! Purchase fair, friendly and fast here:

ALTERNATIVELY PAY WITH A NATIONAL BOOK TOKEN CARD HERE

(Will cost you more, but still freepost UK)

RECRUITMENT SERVICES

When we launched our first local jobsite in 2005 for East Yorkshire, never did we dream it could become so popular and so very widely used! To build on this even further in the future, this week we have acquired the following domains to develop northyorkshirejobs.co.uk / southyorkshirejobs.co.uk / westyorkshirejobs.co.uk / so one day soon all employers and job seekers throughout the whole of Yorkshire will be able to benefit. Plus you employers and agencies out there, will save many thousands of pounds on recruiting fees, compared with what you currently pay to advertise vacancies.
