Went into Moss Bros with my 16 yr old son to get a prom suit. Having never previously been suit shopping we were both novices! Paul & Chris were brilliant - great suggestions without being pushy, asking my son what his preferences were & advising what was on trend. So pleased with his suit & delighted by whole shopping experience.

I recently called into Austins Department Store in Newton Abbot, with very little time, with the challenge of needing a dress & make up suitable for a WW2 evening I was attending that day. The staff couldn't have been more helpful & kind. I came away with a suitable bargain dress (it had 30% off), earrings & to top it... More

The store is sprawled over several shops in Newton Abbot, a bit pricey but the quality is there. The café upstairs in the main shop is very popular and is always full in the mornings.

I love independent small stores, you find things not in the all the large ones where everything is the same in each store, My friend picked up a lovely pair of slacks for £5, she thought the sign said £5 off the garment, so she was delighted, we spent quite a bit of time here as there were so many...

I do love Austins. It's so nice to still see an independent family business, there are far too many chain stores now. Good to see modern labels appearing in the women's clothing section. My only gripe would be some of the staff seem to chat a lot and it is sometimes hard to get there attention. Their website is awful!

A great selection of good quality clothes, some with designer names, I both several polo shirts in the sale. Very helpful staff and well laid out stores. Sadly this is the only good thing you can say about Newton Abbot.

I've been visiting Austen's for many years and I find the four stores well laid out, the staff very pleasant and helpful and usually find what I want. For ladies clothing there is a great selection to choose from. The Pine room is a good venue for lunch and very popular with a good choice. The experience is different to... More

The staff in these stores were so friendly and cheerful. We enquired after some unusual lengths for curtains and the manager of the dept went out of her way to help. We'll be placing the order very soon.
