Customer Is Always Wrong Now A Powell's Bestseller!

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

I was happy to learn from a reader that "The Customer Is Always Wrong: The Retail Chronicles," the fabulous essay collection about working in retail is now a Powell's Bestseller (and staff selection). In fact, it's been as high as #4 on their list. Kudos to editor Jeff Martin who worked his hoo-hoo off to compile an illustrious group of writers and humorists to share their funny and poignant stories. I can barely keep myself sane, grounded and on track, much less a stable of writers.

Some great essays are included ... check it out, I think you'll enjoy. I mean, who hasn't worked in retail, and who doesn't have a horror story (I'm a former Husky's kid who found himself working at Sears in college ... Hello, Irony! And I have friends who shall remain unnamed who used to pee in their ice cream store's pickle barrel, and put their press-on nails in the ice cream cones of annoying customers). Yes we were immature, but wouldn't it be great if we occasionally allowed ourselves as adults to revel in such childish payback?

Here's what Powell's says about the book: Staff Pick

What a delightful collection of true-life tales! Jeff Martin has gathered together writers and humorists of all stripes to offer a gold mine of cringe-inducing stories about life in the retail world. What writer hasn't spent a few years behind the counter of the local mall, bookstore, or record store? From the absurd to the poignant, The Customer Is Always Wrong will show you retail from the inside.

Congrats, Jeff!

How could be possible that customer is always wrong in selling books? It might be our perception that customer is choosing wrong thing. and the market value of that thing could be higher. We have for all students.

This is writer's thinking and we must believe in such resources for us. The reviews must always respected and readers must have idea about these series.

I must say that this is the company website in which we can learn how we can become a good seller and we can easily understand the perception of buyers.
