When I worked at this little supplement store at a strip mall in town, I had this awesome neighboring store that I would check out on my breaks. I would go over there to look at all these cool electronic gadgets, several of which the store owner would offer myself and others at a discounted rate if I promoted his business in my shop. I got my hands on a tablet, a smartphone, and even a portable undefined for my shop that cooled my little repair desk down. That thing is still running well after many years of use, and all it takes to run is a power source and some ice. I loved the beneficial relationship with the store owner, which is what made it hurt so much more when he decided to close the doors to his business… His sales weren’t the best, and despite my attempts to help boost business, he couldn’t compete against the big-box store on the other side of the strip mall. It was a lonely couple of weeks, until I saw a crucial moving truck outside a single afternoon. I saw as boys were loading the empty store space up with boxes of cigars, tobacco, and other smoking accessories. “Oh great”, I thought, “now my store’s going to odor prefer cigarettes”. I was mistaken, because they were in business for the first week and I never detected a tobacco odor, then finally, I went over to check out their products a single afternoon and introduce myself, then upon entry, I was surprised to find that there wasn’t even a tobacco odor in their own shop! I asked the owner how the store odored so clean, and he simply smiled, saying the store has an excellent media air cleaner installed that keeps the air pure, fresh and clean of any odor. He said it’s a must, as the products he sells have a strong odor that has to be contained. He’s been in business for over a year last I checked, and he’s still particularly successful with his shop, then just goes to show you that atmosphere can make or split any store!
