Customer service at its best!! I purchased my son’s first year school books in Liam Ruiseal, Oliver Plunkett St, Cork a coupe of weeks ago. To my surprise a woman working in the shop came up to me and offered to deliver all the books when they were ready to my home. Being heavily pregnant I was so delighted! This saved me another trip back into town before my baby arrived. This lady wasn’t even serving me, however she had the awareness that I was ready to drop! Thank you to the kind woman Brid Hughes who made my day!!! All books arrived a few days later. We’re still waiting on our baby to arrive!
