Recently, there’s been some online discourse about how small shops make enough money to stay in business. The basic premise of people’s question is: How does a tiny store with just weekend foot traffic or tourist traffic manage to stay afloat? What if just a few customers come in each day? How does the place manage to pay their employees, keep the lights on, and also turn a profit? It turns out that the answer is mainly online purchases, which often allow these smaller stores to stay afloat. However, in-store buyers are still important, so it’s important to stores to ensure they have a positive experience each time they enter. This worker, u/Mrst0530 really did try to do that, but it’s not always up to them.
