The staff at Maidenhead are all very clued up, worth going there over any other Lfs I know of to be honest!

I'm with you, every time I've been to a maiden head they have nothing, no special species of fish or any good products. Their plants were infested and everything is pricey .

I actually think it comes down to the staff in each store. The difference between PaH and Maidenhead is that PaH tend to employ a lot of part time staff on minimum wage that don't really know a lot about fish (there are a few exceptions but rarely) whereas maidenhead have a lot more long term staff and many of there managers are actually shareholders of the company with vested interest in the success of their company. It sounds like you guys who have seen the dead fish in Maidenhead have been unlucky and gone to some shite stores. I cannot defend all of the stores as I have been to some myself that could do with improvement but I know i would prefer to buy my livestock from Maidenhead than most others.

I am also in the south Garfy, I wouldn't mind hearing what you think of the Woking branch as I have not been there.
