  1. Turnbull’s of Carlisle…
    I have shopped here for many years and not once have I gone into this shop and received proof service… Even if the shop is busy they advise you if you are waiting also they do not rush you if they are currently serving you…
    A service second to none…… Lots of shops could take a valid lesson from here on customer service…
    Well Done Ladies… Keep up the good work…!

  2. I have shopped at Turnbull’s of Carlisle for many years. Alison and Sheila are so friendly as well as totally professional each complementing the other in the Lingerie business. Fitting is so important in this area of customer service and their attention to detail together with the knowledge of what is best and suits the customer is superb. We are fortunate in a small town to have such a professional service.
