Found this little gem in a magazine...

A sign posted at a "going out of business" sale.
"Sorry, no public restroom. Try Amazon.com."

No bitterness shown there. Maybe, YouTube the responses or post selfies. -----Willy Happy

I think some retailers have a proper beef

In reply to: 2011?

when they talk about people who come into their stores to actually view and hold merchandise in their hands in order to see if it's good enough to order on line. I don't know the solution to that one. I'll often pay a slight bit more for some items just because I know that returns or exchanges can be taken care of quickly.

I do that too
by Willy / August 5, 2014 7:31 AM PDT

I check something that's big ticket for me, yet I do buy locally. Most of the little stuff I get online but more importantly I do consider local shops. I find if I have to return anything, dealing with a local vendor is offhand better to do, but if I have to ship back, boy just too much trouble but I when I have to. Of course a local vendor willing to "match" or at least offer to meet a similar within reason is good enough for me and usually local wins out. But, if you're going to hassle me, some online spurce and any associated bad mouthing and all, then I shop elsewhere. I, like everyone else needn't hear or have to deal with that. -----Willy Happy

Maybe these stores should ALL
by James Denison / August 8, 2014 8:11 AM PDT

....enact a "door fee" that is refundable upon a purchase of equal or greater value. Bars do it.

Most stores have websites now

You can see menus and items on sale. Order them and go to the store and pick them up. Don't have to wait for shipping.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
