not interested in my business
i searched out this store because they (at one time) carried a specific item i wanted to buy. they didn't have the item in stock any longer, but, i was told, they could order it. however, the owner (?) was completely unhelpful to his nice salesperson who was trying to find the item for me with his (un)assistance. i was told to call back on a weekday as the manufacturer was closed over the weekend. when i called back, i spoke to the owner, who gave me a lot of "yeah.......i don't know......not sure........you could call the manufacturer....maybe there's another vendor in town, but i don't know their name........". good lord! if he didn't want my business, WHY NOT JUST TELL ME SO?!? the irony is that i can order the item from various online sources, but i like to try to support local sticks & bricks stores when i can.
