Reviews and Additional Information

  1. Great place to shop but the security are absolutely vile and disgusting they have absolutely no respect for anyone and even themselves. Just because they have the power to ban people doesn’t mean that they can be aggressive with people and threaten them. Had a horrible experience with a few the other day with a woman guard being racist and threatening and a male throwing my friend around! This is completely unacceptable and I hope the bunch of them get sacked! Just letting you guys know about the service they offer.
