I understand a business has to earn a profit but I didnt like how they did it this weekend.
Two occasions -
1.. A couple brought a bag of US comics o the shop to see what they could get. They were selling the comics o behalf of a family member. The owner mentioned he might find some comics worth his while but the rest would go to charity shops (or his 50p box) :-) My problem here was if he didnt want to pay for them he just let them go without any advice. I went up to them after and mentioned put them on Facebook marketplace. Come on give advice!
2.. Another man came in with a bag of 5 graphic novels wanting to sell them. The guy in the shop didnt want them and was turning him away. I guy asked to take a look and bought one. I asked to see them as well. The owner wasnt very happy and demanded us to leave the shop. I had purchased a book from the Salvation Army and was accused of stealing with it. And he shouted as loud as he could. He missed out as the novels sold were as new.
Business is business but you also can be friendly.
I personally think the comics are very reasonably priced and hope this store continues to stay open. More stores like this should be about as they are so damn cool
