How Which? rates shops that sell baby and children's clothes
The table ranking the shops selling baby and children's clothing was taken from the Which? shops survey - the biggest of its kind in the UK. We asked people whether they had bought any clothes or shoes from the stores in the table over the past six months, and then compiled a table of those stores in our clothes and shoes category that also sell clothes for babies and children.
Which? surveyed 12,504 members of the general public online between February and March 2014 about the shops they had visited in the past six months. Shoppers were asked how satisfied they were and how likely they were to recommend the shops. These factors make up the Which? customer score.
Our survey respondents also rated each shop selling baby and children's clothing on the four factors below. These are shown as star ratings in our table.
- Customer service - staff product knowledge, helpfulness and availability
- Store environment - ease of finding products, tidiness of store, store environment and queuing time
- Pricing - value for money and special offers
- Product quality and range - product quality, range of products and whether products are in stock.
