Re: Popular

Hi Grr_roxy, Janet88 and Jetstar, Yes, the Popular staff can transfer books around outlets. But it's whether they WANT to do it or not. I suppose the more hardworking staff will do it. I have now concluded that there is now a vast difference in attitude among the outlets. At least I now know which ...

Re: Popular

Thank you for letting me know! I don't stay too far away from NEX, but I don't always go there, because it can get quite crowded, esp on weekdays. I will try the Popular there the next time! :smile:

Re: Popular

I ordered storybooks from Popular Online once. Super long waiting time, 3-4wks. Thought they will just bring in books from other outlets to your collection outlet so that I do not need to go around sourcing. But that's not true. They bring in from overseas supplier. The books were meant for birthda...

Re: Popular

My favourite one is Parkway Parade. Although it can get super crowded on Sundays, the staff usually maintain their cool. No black faces. And I once asked for Sec 1 and 2 history guide books , they were able to update me when the stock arrived. Yes, you are right. The staff at Marine Parade are quit...
