    Kevin they used to be on the high street that's probably why, they were once a genuine competitor to Blockbuster!

    Ordered from them once and got an offer email only yesterday; thought they were shit for taking an age to deliver so never used them again. Good riddance I say.

    Ha ha ha ha ha Livingston. You are such a looser! Now you can sit at home and watch Downton Fucking Abbey and Loose Women on the Trotski BBC all day while I live in Downton Abbey and Fuck loose women all day. I am the king of London and not at all drunk.

    I cannot understand some of the hostile comments made here. Over many years I made over 60 orders from them. I got some excellent bargains, all new stuff and in pristine condition. When I once contacted them after just missing a sale deadline they replied courteously and they let me purchase the item at the (missed) sale price. Many people at Choices will be losing their livelihoods over this - maybe a bit of common courtesy, good manners and understanding would be appropriate.

    Bob Flange you cunt you should have bought more than sixty things, youve basically screwed the business over and got them all sacked with your 'can I buy it cheaper, I dont want to pay full price, I dont care if it comes out of your wages' attitude. And 60? Use the word for the number when writing a sentence, you odious prole.

    That website says "good morning", I'm excited to find whether it changes this afternoon.

    I saw "18 Plus" and for a minute I thought, oh no, there are going to be loads of obese women squeezing themselves into tiny size 16 clothes. Fortunately it is just an entertainment company. With a name like that, no doubt a quite "jazzy" site.

    I wish ITV would go bust, it's shit.
