    I've always got good service and good prices from them. I go to the same person always. We have a relationship and he always try to please me. I even get free stuff when buying something else. He knows I'll come back if he give me good service.

    It is hard not to invite suspicion when you just joined and your first few posts is to 'commend' a commercial entity....especially when it deals with photographic equipment

    Anyway....my experience with AP Funan is ....their service so so..not rude but not warm either(maybe I don't look like having a deep pocket) . Personally, I find that CP offers better pricing and service compared to AP Funan....

    can't comment on AP in SimLim 'cos I never bought anything from them.

    as previously stated in the last thread about the shops

    i still prefer AP funan than CP itself.
    reason is simple.
    i look young. look poor as i have the student look. CP staff dun even bother about me at all.
    except for the tripod section where steven and christopher is awfully friendly

    Ap funan is the one i would prefer to step in as i always gotten good services and good prices from david and one of the guy there. forgot his name.

    john is good too. all the staff there are nice but of cos sometimes the prices there are not as cheap as other place. but i still do buy from them when i have the extra cash to spare. well they r good so we should patronise them and shop there often!

    just my pt of view

    You mean the sale staff wated to close door and go home, see wife and kiss baby and they gave away cameras and lenses at low price to chase the last customer out of the shop?

    When is the closing time?

    Aiyah, got price tag also like that.
    Take CP for example, the price tag on accessories (e.g. bag, lens pen) is always double of what the salesman quoted.

    I've been buying stuff from AP sim lim and i always try to go to the same salesman (i think he is name is steven) who served me. So far so good .... but when the shop is crowded with tourist...chances are that i'm not on their priority list ( i dun look like a rich bugger at all)

    self praise is no praise. why do we have to know which salesmen to go? can't we go any salesman and expect reasonable service from him?

    You should buy from which ever place you feel comfortable at and from whoever salesman you feel has a good service attitude.

    I am ok with the service at AP from both Sim Lim and Funan but am selective as to who serves me. This guy called Joseph from Funan branch was nice enough to show me cameras even though I had no intention to buy that day. Like many people said, Steven at Sim Lim branch can be trusted to give good pricing and service. When going to places like CP and MS, some particular sales people should be sought out and some avoided as well.
