A gentleman comes up to my register and says, “Where do you keep these?”
He pulls out his cell phone and shows a photo of some concrete garden art in a set of tall metal shelving, I looked carefully at the photo, went back to helping the customer I was ringing up, and said “We don’t. That photo was taken at [competition].”
The guy replies, “This picture was from your store.”
I don’t even look up. “Have a look at the price label on shelf.”
The very distinct labels, by design and color, are trademarks of a well-known warehouse chain. (And nowhere in our store do we have that kind of shelving, anyhow.) He pinch-zooms on his phone and looks closer. It takes him 45 seconds before he asks, “So you don’t have this in stock?”
