Don't give your phone number when returning an item to the Please Mum store

Don't give your phone number when returning an item to the Please Mum store. Our number ended up on their marketing telephone list, and we received an automated call (phone spam) where a computer told us about the "grand re-opening" of their store, a promotion that we could not care less about.

For a store that sells baby clothes, they should know that parents of babies sleep strange hours (i.e. when we can) and causing a disruption like mass automated phone recordings is a great way to make sure that we never shop there again.

Update (March 2, 2012): On February 27, 2012, I received a phishing spam to a one-time-use email address that I only ever used once to communicate with Please Mum. I do not know whether this was a result of the June 2010 security breach of their web customer database, but I am certainly convinced never to provide Please Mum with any of my personal information in the future.
