Windham Small Kade Drawstring
Another reason is that it make good business sense. We are consumers and they are providers. A mutually friendly relationship benefits us both. When will car dealers learn that? Sorry, that is another subject.
My first ever "upscale" purchased for Rhonda was a Dooney leather purse. It was a first time treat and I still have it. Over thirty year later it still looks good and there is something to be said for purchasing timeless quality. At that time I was so proud that I had the courage to enter a major department store and make a purchase as Rhonda.
A few week back in Dallas I had a wonderful conversation with Andrea at the Dallas Galleria, Dooney and Bourke store. Andrea and I talked for a while, like old girlfriends talking about our purse obsession and after a few minutes she shared that the purse I was lusting after, would likely be on sale over the weekend. Unfortunately I was leaving Dallas Thursday. She said give me a call and see what I can do. I did not think much about it knowing that I could likely get the sale on-line.
The online price was not near as good Andrea had alluded to , so I called and was told by another associate they absolutely would not ship a sale item. Just to be sure that this policy was firm, I called back several days later and got Andrea. She said, "sure honey for you, I will be happy ship it".
When out and about take the time to make friends. I saved over a $100.00 dollars. But making a friend - Priceless.
Oh, one more reason - It is the right thing to do!

I have found it easier and easier to be friendly with sales people and they always remember you for being so nice and are eager to banter. Good for you!ReplyDelete
