I'm surprised by some of the comments suggesting this store owner should be not be commented about by those he treated badly. I too have worked with the public for years, and sure, there are some customers who behave poorly. But there is really no excuse for a shop owner to yell maniacally at a customer (me, yesterday) for touching a tablecloth. Who would not touch a tablecloth before buying it? I happened to be looking for a price tag, but seriously, if you sell textiles, you can't expect people not to touch them. To add to the surreality of the situation, after I apologized he ranted about how there were signs clearly indicating they were not to be touched. I looked around and saw no sign. The two people with me looked around and saw no sign either. I asked him where the signs were, thinking I had overlooked them, and he began pointed at the tablecloths hanging on the wall yelling "Here!" and "Here!" and yet there were no signs. I said, "Where?" and all he could do was keep pointing at the tablecloths on the wall, yelling "Here!" There were NO signs on the wall. I asked him, "Do you always treat your customers this way?" but by then he was storming off to the back of the store. I truly don't understand how this man stays in business, except that judging by some of the comments further up, he can turn on the charm when he wants to. A woman who was shopping in the store at the same time yesterday and witnessed the scene hurried out behind us and said, "What a rude man! I will never buy anything from him!" My sentiments exactly. And if he thinks he has a right to treat people that way, then I think we have a right to write about it. His attitude is a awful blemish to my otherwise lovely neighborhood.
