I just wanted to say thanks.
I'm going into my third summer working at a pool store company. I've followed this forum constantly through the whole journey. Here's where I started: if-you-have-the-time-a-hypothetical-t12484.html
Strangely, I have the lowest average per customer sale amount, but have incredible customer count and overall sales numbers =).
I've gone from part-time help to a store manager, and I always try to do right by the folks that come through my store. It just goes to show you that honesty and technical knowledge can beat a short-term sales approach. I'm leading the pack by trying to save my customers money within the framework of my company's policies.
Thanks again for the site.
