Always a good experience at Whitworths

Reviewed Nov 2017
I was sorry to hear about the review regarding the incident at the Cairns branch of Whitworths. I'm a girl!! I've been tagging along behind my husband into Whitworths for about 20 years.....It's one of my favourite shops, and for me it even tops a visit to Bunnings or Lincraft. I have always, without fail, been treated with respect and kindness. I am often the driving force for visiting Whitworths, usually wanting something nautical to improve my comfort on board our yacht. Please girls.............don't let one bad experience put you off tagging along into Whitworths.....

On arriving in Cairns after sailing from the Gold Coast my wife and I ventured into Whitworths to pick up some much needed supplies from a chain we had shopped with regularly. Unfortunately we encountered a member of staff who doesnt like dealing with women. My wife was chasing a particular item and was asking the member of staff about it. Eyes were rolled and he actually threw down an item on the counter in my wife's direction. He was rude to the point of being insulting. Obviously we were spoilt by the exceptional staff and service at Southport and Breakfast Creek Whitworths. Needless to say we will be shopping elsewhere in Cairns.

Service sucks in Cairns.

Please don't assume that this standard of bad service is typical of Whitworths. I have always found them to be helpful. Except in Cairns. As anybody who has been to Cairns Whitworths will know it is a very long walk from the Marina. I went there to buy a battery for my hand held radio and they said they have to order it and it will be about 3 days. They insisted I pay for it before they would order it. I said that would be okay if somebody could please deliver it tome at the marina due to the long walk. They absolutely refused, even if I did agree to pay the full amount now. I walked out and found another shop just down the road that had one in stock ten dollars cheaper. Please don't blame Whitworth's, it's a Cairns thing. They have a extremely bad attuned and provide the worst service anywhere in Australia.
