Try that in Green Bay

November 5, 2009 - Blaine Hyska
For those of you thinking of traveling to some far city for your Christmas shopping — don’t do it.

I’ve had to make a couple of large purchases recently.

I never like spending money, but I shopped in the local area, and the experience was a pleasure.

Take for example, the time when I was shopping for a item for the house.

I walked into the store to see what was available. I had not been in that store in several months, maybe a year.

I asked what type of items were in stock.

The owner pulled out a box and said, “Here, take it home and try it. If you like it, come back and you can pay me later. If you don’t like it, you can bring it back.”

He didn’t ask for a down payment, a reference — nothing.

He knew my face as a local resident and as a past customer.

This item, mind you, was in the $200 range. To me, that’s a lot of money.

Try doing that in Green Bay.

By the way, I liked and kept the item.
