    My honest impression of Pick n Pay is that they take their customers for granted. They know times are tough and people are looking to pay the best prices for the best quality of food. Staff here have really bad attitudes and I no longer greet the tellers unless they greet me first - after all, it is my money being spent at that moment in time and I feel the least the staff can do is greet me first. It is always such an effort for the teller to stop talking to her friend and greet me!! Our local Northcliff Melville News have Pick n Pay brochures in the middle of the paper each week so I browse through for any good bargains. Since I work at Northlands Deco Park a lot I often pop in to Northgate - specially when a good special has been advertised. I have decided to rather support our Woolworths and Spar in Northcliff and assist in ensuring they remain busy, than to spend my hard earned money where I don't feel welcome.

    I like the clothing section at this Pick 'n Pay. I don't often have to go shopping for groceries so I can't say much about that side of the store, but the clothing section is a regular stop for me. I like that they have quite a large selection despite it not being the main focus of this store. Sometimes I can get items here that aren't in stock at the other stores which are exclusively Pnp clothing stores - maybe because people don't think to look here? There aren't people around to help with anything but aside from that it's a good section of the store and they often have sales.

    If you have time to waste, then shop here.The store is big/spacious, good variety of items. Layout is good. But service is not. The cashiers take their own time to assist you, they busy chatting to their colleagues or the packers during the time that you are there making service even slower. If you have a price query they just shrug you off. Best check prices as its scanned, as many times I have had items that were incorrectly scanned, and had to show them that the shelf pricing was different. Really no joy from managers, especially beacuse the store is big with many tills and if you on the opposite end of the customer service desk, you could have a long wait for a manager (if you manage to find one) to take his/her time to crawl their way to assist. I enjoy great savings at a Hyper store when there are specials, but if you consistently have poor customer service, it's not worth it.

    I usually do my month-end shopping here because of the wide range and specials. Everything from groceries to electonics and even clothes.Theres great clearance sales especially on Saturday and theres always a deal for you. It does get very busy as expected on weekend and month end,so best to shop early. Staff are friendly and helpful most of the time (but not always. Overall a good experience for me

    We used to live close to Northgate and we did all our shopping at this Pick n Pay. It was a lovely store. We were so shocked when we went there recently. I could not find anything I was looking for. The once beautifully kept store now looks like a giant spaza shop. Half the fridges are broken, paint is peeling off the shelves.

    Pick n Pay Northgate is in a shocking state

    I was at P & P Darras Centre last Thursday. Had a delicious cream Donut, and choc ring Donut. Delicious, and both for under R 10. Fresh also, like a few hours old..

    Prices displayed on shelves do not correlate with scan prices. Staff reluctant to assist when this happens. Supervisors unfriendly, slow and have no customer relations skills.
