Rovers Store Hassles

Post by Simon » Sat Sep 10, 2011 5:37 pm

Just went into Blackburn to buy the new home shirt. I couldn't find one on the shelf with a Princes trust logo on so took it to the till and asked if they could put it on. They said they only had 1 sponsor logo transfer left and it would take 5 mins to apply. So I paid and came back approx. 15 mins later to pick it up - only to be told by unenthusiastic staff (after much confusion amongst staff as to who I was and what I was meant to be collecting) that they'd run out of transfers and I could go to Ewood to get it put on or come back on Monday. This was at about 3.45pm. So I drove down to Ewood - only to find the store was closed. :evil:

I can't get into Blackburn with ease and CBA queuing for half an hour on a matchday.

Haven't had a problem when ordering online, maybe thats the answer. Postage probably would be cheaper than the trip, depending on what you're ordering.

Anyone ever have trouble accessing their account with the roverstore website? I made an account two or three years back and could never purchase anything as it always said my client number/name didn't match. Confirmed with a Mel Gillbrown that it was in fact correct and that my email address had been accepted and it still hasn't worked. I have to get my merchandise and tickets via my brother or ex boyfriend's brother which is a bit bloody awkward all round. Though, I am known for bringing terrible luck upon rovers any time I go to a game. Perhaps it's fate trying to tell me something :shrug:
