My husband and I were excited about a new wine store which opened near our house as we are always on the lookout for something different. You can do tastings, and all the wines are relatively inexpensive. We finally had time to go try it out on Saturday. When we entered the store, which is in a rehabbed warehouse - very nicely done, I might add - we saw one customer and two employees. We browsed a little, and the female employee finally came over and offered us a sample. A second customer came in, and she left us to go help him. The male employee eventually wandered over to see if we wanted a second sample, then he left us to go help the guy who came in after us. So, we waited for someone to explain how the store works to us, since we were newbies. No one ever did. In fact, a couple that came in after us got waited on the by female employee, and the male employee never approached us again. That will be my one and only visit to that business, and that might explain their lack of customers on a pretty Saturday afternoon.
