The cost of things

Hi Folks-

Get those special orders in peeps, times a wasting :-)!

You get customers in all kinds of moods. I am quite happy to say that our usual customer is a joy to help. I’ve quite frequently had new employees say “Wow, the customers are so nice here.” Of course you sometimes get someone who isn’t having a great day and can’t quite reel it in. Occasionally we get complaints about pricing, generally we just explain that we charge a pretty even margin for everything and prices do vary by product. Eli had a customer last Saturday who was really shocked by the price of the breakfast sandwiches, apparently a whole dollar more than the Co-op (I wouldn’t know) and grudgingly paid. Eli calmly assured her they were worth it.

I came in a couple hours later and took over the register. I got a call asking “For the guy who was at the register,” I explained that I was the girl at the register and could I help?

No,” she said “I was giving this guy a hard time about how expensive the breakfast sandwiches were and I want to apologize to him, he was right, they’re awesome and totally worth it!” I found Eli, everybody wants a call like that! And how super nice of that person to call back with both an apology and a compliment. Yay people!
