Here are a few you won't catch me in:

ASDA - I am not a chav and don't like to slap my back pocket like a prat

Morrisons - do they ever have anything you want in stock?

Co-op - Home of the living dead

Dixons (now called Curry Digital) - the world's most clueless shop staff. Do they actually train their staff on what they are selling?

Matalan - I like my things to last longer than 3 weeks before falling apart

Any others to add to the list?

Why do people seem to think Asda is a chav shop. We shop at Asda, as do most people we know. I wouldn't describe any of them as chavs, poor, council house, beneift scroungers or whoever else some of the snobs (yes, I feel comfotable using that word) on here think are the sort of people who shop there.

Lush. I don't think they would be too impressed with me vomiting all over the floor. (I don't like the stench)

River Island in Cambridge. All the women's clothes are on the 1st floor and you can't get a pushchair up the stairs unless you carry it.

Lol!

Dixons products are kinda bad.

There isn't ANY shops I wouldn't go into - I find it rather snobbish to even think that way!

What makes a supermarket chavvish for gods sake, they sell food - as supermarkets should!

OP, where do you buy your food from?!

Boots, I would never go there. (it's a long story, mainly about the way Boots treated Colourcare international staff years ago)

Argos, because it's a Chav shop

The thing is, Dixons know the staff are crap. My cousin worked in management for them for a few years, and it was well known for allot to refer to the people selling stuff and doing shop floor jobs as Dixon Monkeys.

Small, independent shops of any kind. You know, the ones where no one goes, and when you go in the two staff working there come over to you asking you what you want then give you loads of alternatives.

Och! Get out of my face... I like to shop on my own

He's right.

I don't like shops with unhelpful staff though...

I'm from Cambridge.

There's a designer clothes shop called Guilio in a road called King's Street and when I used to go in there, the staff were all over me after about 5 seconds.

I hate going into designer clothes shops. The staff expect you to make a 100 purchase after about 10 seconds!

Um, well I don't tend to discriminate against any shops...there are a handful that I don't particularly enjoy going to, though.

HMV, particularly

P.S. I occasionally purchase too

Same here. I am not snobbish about certain shops but there are some places which I just hate and don't like stepping foot in.

I love Morrisons though

Yes I forgot Argos. I once went in there and ordered a dvd player (which I later learnt was 25% cheaper on the net) and after keeping me waiting for 30 minutes, they said they couldn't find it in their stock room! I won't be going back there again.

I don't really like going into Argos.

Trying to find an available catalogue to browse (most already being used by someone).

Trying to find a pen to write down your order.

Having to sit down, waiting for your special number to come up (like being in a bingo hall!).

It's so tedious!
