Poll started 17 September 2019
Retailers love us to have a relationship with them. Indeed, many feel an almost intimate connection with some brands, but wouldn't be seen dead crossing others' thresholds. So let's see…

Please pick up to FIVE that you love and up to FIVE that you loathe...
Did you vote? Are you surprised at the results so far? Have your say below.

    Interesting choice of poll, that definitely merits discussion!

    Loathe Amazon because they game the global tax system, drive local bookshops and retailers out of business with their competitive advantage, treat staff terribly, and more. (Also good reminder to me to check out a subscription to Ethical Consumer magazine.)

    Love Waterstones for being someplace I can wander around and lose myself in a book for a few minutes before adding to my extensive collection of unread, new books.

    Love John Lewis because of their customer service, in-store experience, range of products, and partnership model.

    Waterstones (along with the now defunct Dillons), probably drove far more local bookstores out of business in the 80s and 90s than Amazon did in the 00s and 10s.

    Loathe anything and everything owned by that disgusting bag of meat-paste, mike ashley.

    I have a weird love/hate relationship with Amazon - love the service, prices and product range. Loathe their tax arrangements (although that's actually the fault of the govt.) and the way they treat their staff.

    When I lived in London my BF and I used to go Harrods frequently. Their perfumery department was divine and their cafes excellent.

    We very rarely spent any money though!
