Grantham Journal letter: Buying from local store has benefits

Have your say

May I give an example of the benefit of getting behind local businesses.

I decided to purchase a new laptop, and visited Grantham Computers. I explained what I needed from the computer and the staff recommended a ‘notebook’ type, which saved me £150 from my original budget.

The laptop does everything that I need and then some.

I somehow upset the settings, so took the computer back to the shop. The staff reset the computer, explained what I had done wrong, and returned it to the correct settings. This was done without charge, and I had a very interesting conversation and demonstration of some for the more advanced capabilties of the computer.

Try getting that service from an internet purchase!
