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 supplier in my shop. I got my hands on a tablet, a smart cellphone, & even a portable a/c for my shop that cooled my little repair desk down. That thing is still running well after many years of use, & all it takes to run is a power source & 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, then his sales weren’t the best, & 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 important moving truck outside a single afternoon. I saw as gentlemen were loading the empty store section up with boxes of cigars, tobacco, & other smoking accessories. “Oh great”, I thought, “now my store’s going to smell enjoy cigarettes”. I was mistaken, because they were in supplier for the first month & I never detected a tobacco smell! Finally, I went over to check out their products a single afternoon & introduce myself! Upon entry, I was surprised to find that there wasn’t even a tobacco smell in their own shop! I asked the owner how the store smelled so clean, & he simply smiled, saying the store has an excellent air cleaner installed that keeps the air pure, fresh & scrub of any smell. He said it’s a must, as the products he sells have a strong smell that has to be contained. He’s been in supplier for over a year last I checked, & he’s still easily successful with his shop, just goes to show you that atmosphere can make or chop any store!
