Jean Trustpilot product review 5 star rating September 13 2021

The specific date of The Financial Times that I ordered was provided and the 100 year old bonus paper was an actual copy of The Times, which proved to be an unexpected and amazing surprise. nnI cannot speak too highly of both the quality of the product, the speed in which it arrived and efficiency of the staff in responding to my e-mailed queries.
