Computer supplies and consumables

CPC Farnell

Component House, Faraday Dr, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9PP, UK – 0344 788 0088

Like CPC offer good value products with quick delivery and now as part of Farnell can get parts on Science Warehouse.

In general they aren't too bad but I've now been waiting 6 weeks for an order. UPS have admitted they delivered to the wrong address but no one seems that bothered. The general attitude from both companies is "we gave it a try". As if I'm being picky about actually receiving the goods. Emails are not replied to it a timely manner. This is really disappointing. Their website is also in desperate need of an overhaul.

The Cartridge Guys Preston - Ink Toner Printer Cartridges

49 Water Ln, Preston PR2 2NL, UK – 01772 724455

Simply the best printer cartridge supplier in Preston whether it's genuine or compatible. They are among the cheapest I could find - local and online. Fast free delivery. Good quality cartridges that are guaranteed to work. I'd recommend Cartridge Guys to any business or individual looking for a good supplier of reliable printer cartridges.

Amazing service from very friendly and knowledgeable guys. Bought a re-furbed printer from them and cannot fault the level of after-sales service. Highly recommened.

Computer Shop Preston

B, 108 Deepdale Rd, Preston PR1 5AR, UK – 01772 287001

When one our Dell pcs at work started working very slowly, i took it to Expert Computing suspecting a configuration issue. They very quickly told me by looking at the log files it was the hard drive. The hard drive was replaced the same day and i got my machine back the next day with very little downtime. The PC was configured exactly as it was before. Excellent fast service. Highly recommend.

Bought my daughter a cheap tablet but had difficulty in setting it up. The guys at Expert Computing were very helpful. I got set up in minutes and configured everthing for me. Thanks guys.

Stationery and Office Supplies

Ryman Stationery

11 Friargate, Preston PR1 2NQ, UK – 01772 556089

Have visited this store twice recently and had fantastic customer service. The first time the shop assistant helped me with a Bluetooth speaker letting me know it sounded really good. I bought it and she was right. I contacted the store by phone to see if they had any more but they were sold out but Sharon, the store manager, managed to get me two more for my family from the Wigan store and rang me when they had arrived. I'll definitely be popping in again.


162-165 Friargate, Preston PR1 2EJ, UK – 01772 825717

A good store with cheap items. It is clean and the staff were helpful after I dropped an item.

Fairly large Wilkinson's store with a good choice, though it gets very busy and long queuing times ensue at peak periods.


C1A, Deepdale Retail Park, Blackpool Rd, Preston PR1 6QY, UK – 01772 700387

This Wilko is great as it's large, spacious and well stocked. My only poor experience was the member of staff on the till who didn't seem to know how to use the till, but she may be new.
