    Only business people who wants a fast buck and to
    make sure time spent is not wasteful to the above
    mentioned customers will think twice before opening
    a retail shop.

    In any retail business, it is how well you you make
    the customer to experience and be satisfied with the
    service you provide. To me, there is no such thing as
    a difficult customer.

    sound like you are open a monastery for the sale personnel instead of retail shop.

    let me know when you open any camera shop, I want to come and experience it, will recommend your shop to many others.

    i think it's true not so difficult to open a shop

    but it's about keeping it running

    but always remember to be sincere, honest and simply have the one intention of bringing quality goods for your customers

    i wonder how difficult could it be to run a shop whenever i see samuel with his SLK

    Default Chance of success for a camera shop?

    It would be a tragic disaster for businessmen not to hire
    excellent and well trained counter sales personnel for
    their retail outlets.

    Customers want to be appreciated for what they are.
    They do not want to be impressed with your excellence
    communication skills. They do not want to be regarded
    as sounding boards for the sales people's egos.

    Customers do not want to patronise a shop who hire
    counter sales personnels who do excellent service but
    with average tools.

    Potential retail photographic outlets must ensure
    that they are able to add value to their customers
    and help them become better than they would be.
    This can only be done through the front line sales
    people in your organisation.

    The time will come that I have the capital to start
    such a venture, I will want to invite you to be one
    of my consultants and not to be my customer.

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Photographers want to walk into a photo retail
    outlet with excellent positive atmosphere with warm,
    open, creative and encouraging ideas.

    They want to to experience the "coming together,
    working together" and be part of a developing
    company whose main aim is to serve the compelling
    vision of the customers.

    Just put in money to run it the way you want it, otherwise
    you will be like all businessmen getting headaches
    because whatever they do must be profit oriented.

    To make profit, you sure will hire staff who asked for
    lesser salary and willing to work extra longer hours,
    buy goods with cheaper price, spent less on furnishing
    and so on. In the end, the business is just like, you
    put garbage in, so garbage out.

    this is what loanshark doing. 洗黑錢

    Well, not sure what you mean by loanshark, are you implying that
    the word "shrewd businessman" will be more appropriate for the
    description in this case?

    Can you share just one working idea for such an enterprise that would
    keep it running beside the essential basics of having to be honest and
    having good intention of supplying quality products to the customers?
