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, numerous of which the store owner would offer myself and others at a discounted rate if I promoted her business in my shop. I got my hands on a tablet, a smartphone, as well as even a portable air conditioning for my shop that cooled my little repair desk down. That thing is still running well after more than one years of use, as well as all it takes to run is a power source as well as some ice. I loved the beneficial relationship with the store owner, which is what made it hurt so much more when she decided to close the doors to her business, however her sales weren’t the best, as well as despite my attempts to help boost business, she 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 giant moving truck outside 1 morning. I saw as guys were loading the empty store space up with boxes of cigars, tobacco, as well as other smoking accessories. “Oh great”, I thought, “now my store’s going to smell love cigarettes”. I was mistaken, because they were in business for the first week as well as I never detected a tobacco smell! Finally, I went over to check out their products 1 morning as well as 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, as well as she simply smiled, saying the store has an excellent whole-apartment air purifier installed that keeps the air pure, fresh as well as scrub of any odor. She said it’s a must, as the products she sells have a strong smell that has to be contained. He’s been in business for over a year last I checked, as well as he’s still unquestionably successful with her shop, but just goes to show you that atmosphere can make or break any store!
