Too Closed For Comfort

, , , | Right | June 9, 2010

(I work for a huge, nation-wide department store retailer. Our stores are rather large, and doing well.)

Customer #1: *to her friend* “Isn’t it sad? They’re closing this branch of [Store]?”

Customer #2: “Oh, really? When?”

Me: “Actually, we’re not closing. Believe me.”

Customer #1: “Yes, you are, because I read it somewhere. Was it in the newspaper?”

Me: “What makes you think that we’re closing, may I ask?”

Customer #1: “See, look!” *she gestures toward our small clearance area in the front of the store.*

Me: “Nope, that’s just our clearance area. We’re getting ready for spring.”

Customer #1: “Right, because you’re closing.”

Me: “No, ma’am. We’re the largest [Store] in the tri-state area. If we’re closing, no one at the store has been informed of it!”

Customer #1: “Wow, they didn’t tell you yet?!”
