I visited this shop two weeks after Christmas which may have affected things. Excellent for men, ok for women. Loads of Barbour. Next to no warm hats or gloves for either sex. I went in search of a 300 weight women’s fleece jacket and there was a very poor selection of fleeces in general. I would suggest if you want something specific to ring first, especially if you live a long way away.

Very helpful and knowledgeable staff Highly recomended

Lidl Pitsea

Old Market Retail Park, High Rd, Basildon SS13 3AB, UK – 0800 977 7766

Its a Lidl, its everything you'd expect from a Lidl, everything in the same place every week so you don't need to wander aimlessly looking for stuff. Just enough stock to survive. Loads of interesting and often desirable random objects in the middle isles that you don't need which strangely stimulate your "I need to own this set of patio plant wheels" only to regret buying them before you get home because you live in a flat and don't have a patio or plants" brain department. As usual you join a queue which often contains wide spread of people. All getting a little bit anxious about the heck are they going to keep up with the insane scanning speed of the mighty blank faced check out assistant. I hope this helps, I have kept my comments honest and factual.

Always good value with quality products. Much the same as Aldi I tend to shop between the two . Handy at this location as the two are next to each other.

Summerhill Garden Centre

Pipps Hill Rd N, Southend Arterial Rd, Billericay CM11 2UJ, UK – 01268 280699

Fantastic garden centre alongside the a127. Good sized car park. Amazing plant selection. Seasonal decorations, pots planters garden furniture and all. Bit on a pricey side but amazing quality, can find everything you are looking for under one roof. Always neat and tidy. Polite personnel. Highly recommended all year around.

Very good shopping centre with outstanding quality of presents. However, there was this one lady, dressed like an elf who was just standing back and stuffing her face with sweets. My face reaction was 'you are letting yourself and all your colleagues down!' That is really what put me off. Also some of the food is disgusting. That is what let it down for me. This is why I rate Summerhill Garden Centre 3 stars. I will definitely go back again for the presents in the holidays and the decorations for Christmas or Easter as the quality was amazing and for great value. However if I see that lady again stuffing her face with sweets, I will report her to one of her colleagues.
