DJ Tech Direct

The Custard Factory, Birmingham B9 4AA, UK – 0121 224 7650

Friendly, helpful and full of the latest DJ gear (all of which you can demo on request!). Cannot recommend enough - on hand to help with any queries no matter your skill level. Their selection of vinyl is also something to check out too. Ranging from Techno, Deep House, Acid, Disco and other weird and wonderful records.

Was advised by Mark at the DJ Gym that DJ Tech Direct was the best place to get my DJ kit from and he wasn't wrong...... Friendly staff with great knowledge of the equipment and not pushy at all. Happy to let me try the kit to see for myself before purchasing. When I upgrade I will definitely be back there for more. They even offered to help me with phone or email support if I had any queries with the equipment which I had to take them up on and they answered the question straight away. I just can't fault them. Awesome. :)

Currys PC World

79/84 High St, Birmingham B4 7TE, UK – 0344 561 0000

Excellent store in Birmingham with helpful staff always willing to help and provide additional information when asked. Also alot of items are on display which is useful as you can try before you buy. A regular stopping point for me and a favourite of mine.

Great city centre store on 2 levels. T vs are downstairs and most of the rest is upstairs. Standard service from the staff. Good hight street electronic goods from reliable brands.

Dean and his organisation, Orquid Computers, have helped us with some high quality equipment which have worked flawlessly and on one occasion that there was an issue it was dealt with IMMEDIATELY, at no cost to us.

Stationery and Office Supplies

Paperchase

31, Stephenson Pl, Birmingham B2 4BF, UK – 0121 643 9815

I have received incredible service at this particular Paperchase on multiple occasions. Damien and his fellow colleagues have been very helpful. They offer great ideas and have made the whole shopping experience a breeze. It is always an absolute pleasure purchasing from here. Thank you very much Team New Street.

I love this place though it's pricey. I've bought a few stickers and bits in the sales. They tend to keep up with trends and their displays look lovely. They have a loyalty scheme which doesn't work on points. Supposed to get offers on birthday but I never have.

Smiggle

Unit 325, Bullring S/C, Lower Mall Level, Park St, Birmingham B5 4BU, UK – 0121 643 3372

My daughter absoloutley loves this shop and I wish I could buy her everything from here. The staff are so friemdly and happy to assist you

Daughter loves this shop like most children, very expensive and should perhaps bring in a slightly cheaper range so all kids can enjoy smiggle

Ryman Stationery Birmingham Temple St

20 Temple St, Birmingham B2 5BG, UK – 0121 244 7711

Staff are generally friendly and helpful. I think the manager can learn from them

They have all basic and some expert stationery. Very friendly staff who does not mind checking for details on the internet. Good discounts if you buy in bulk.
