    "Baby-Equipment" store comparison

    Hi Mommies,

    which of the big "Baby-Equipment" Stores do You prefer?
    Is it Eugene Club, Bumps to Babes or Mothercare?
    I am about to have my first Baby and need to buy EVERYTHING....
    Just wondering price-wise and service-wise which offers be the best deals.

    Thank You!

    I preferred Mothercare because they had a catalogue that is easy to refer to when planning, and discussing with the salespeople.

    i have a real problem with "everything".... there are so many things that are completely unnecessary, things you will never use, or only use once....i heard on here once that the "essentials" list from b2b was something like 2 pages long! that's insane!

    I like mothercare too - I find their salespeople much more helpful than the ones at Bumps to Babes and Eugene Club.

    On top of the better sales staff, I prefer Mothercare because it is more convenient than B2B. Plus with the HSBC card, you get a discount instantly. Whatever i can't get i get at B2B or 0/3 Baby.

    Another thing to note is that Eugene Club is very much tailored for the local mum versus B2B which is easy for the expat mum. Everything is more familiar.

    Yes, the stuff at B2B is more familiar to those who are in the know about baby stuff for North America. Although I`m from Canada, I had noooo idea about that kinda thing at the time. I myself was quite impressed with Eugene at first. Now I think B2B is great fun.
    I`m with Cara, in that the suggested lists of `must haves` are ridiculously extravagant.
    I made a very skimpy list, hunted down exactly what I wanted from various places.
    Now I`m more `in the game` and enjoy baby shopping.
    I think Mothercare is a very annoying shop. Too British (sorry Brits), too small a selection and limited brands.
    As mentioned, B2B is great, very north american, but can be pretty pricey.
    Eugene (would NOT buy a crib there) has a very fair selection of things, but as a previous poster mentioned, does seem to cater a bit more to local mummies, and carries some seemingly obscure Euro brands and is just not consistent with their stock choices and varieties. Check out the Central store on Queens Rd - the best one I have been to.

    There is also the baby department in Sincere, Wing On and Apita. They have a selection of baby supplies as well.

    I bought most of my baby gear at Wing On because they deliver with purchases over $500, and you can always return the items for store credits if you're not happy with any of your purchase. Plus, their prices are very reasonable. The only downside to them is that they mostly just carry the Japanese brands.
