Which is even more of an insult, because even with the prospect of making some sales, he declined.

Being able to cater to every customer that walks in, instead of just a few, makes your business a success. Especially considering Bush had the number one jersey a few years ago. He didn't even know who he was!

Taking something personal for me, usually results in me knocking someone out. I talked, he didn't listen, thus, the dis, which is the reason for this post. I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this, so I asked. Sorry to inconvienence anyone.... sheesh!

BTW, how is this post getting personal anyway? It's not like I'm talking about Melrose Place here.
No being able to cater to everyone doesn't not mean your business a success. If you are only going to stock 100 items in your store and you know you'll sale 50 Pats, 25 49ers, 10 Steelers, 10 Cowboys, and 5 Falcons why on earth would you stock others? You make the easy enough sales for the max profit. If you have sold a Saints Jersey in 10 years why on earth would you expect anyone to buy one now??? He doesn't sale it he loses profit. Welcome to a free market society. I am sure there are a lot of facts that went into his decision that maybe we don't know... hey and maybe he's just a idiot, but based on where this location is you can't seriously fault him.

If that was the case I guess the store at the mall here who only sales Raider items should be out of business by now??? He is only catering to one type of people and they suck this year but he seems to still be open.

The internet makes everyone a tough guy there big fella. If you were knocking people out like that then you are probably breaking the jails rules by getting online and putting messages on forums.

Re: The ULTIMATE disrespect!!!

Ok, it's obvious, that you have a "personal" problem with me. And if my comments offended you, I apologize, but you seem to have been singling me out on this topic. If you read the rest, you might notice I'm not the only one who sees this as a problem, or has a problem with it. And when I said knock someone out, I was explaining myself, not threatening anyone here. If you have a problem with me, which from the way you have responded to me, then so be it, but why not let it out, and we will squash it. I am too old to be going back and forth over this. So, with this post, if you want to squash it, great, if not, then I am done with this conversation. Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: The ULTIMATE disrespect!!!

im with SP25 on this issue... an NFL specialty shop in cali who doesnt have at least a Reggie Bush jersey or even know who he is (he played at USC for petes sake) and doesnt know that the Saints are 10-0.. i find it pretty dumb that the manager or owner or clerk or whoever he was speaking to in the "specialty" store doesnt keep up with the sport that he is selling merchandise for.... that is pretty retarded if u ask me... especially since its been plastered all over ESPN for the past 4 or 5 weeks... i think that if you are going to sell something, then you should at least try to have recent information about it.. whether it be sporting merchandise or even power tools or whatever..

No nothing personal at all. There were no personal attack or name calling in my posts.

I had the very same issue and I explained how I delt with it and won. The store added Saints items the following year and I purchased... it was a win win. We also debated business practice where I do have some knowledge owning 2 different business myself and about to start another at the beginning of the year.

...and I know what you ment about knocking someone out 'anyone can talk tough on the internet". I am sure you didn't mean anything literally.

(before anyone says anything, I do order stuff online, but I like to see if the sports stores have it as well) Anyway, I walked into the store, and the only saints stuff I found, was two sideline hats, and the sideline beanie. I asked the store owner if he had anything else, and he responded, "The Saints?" "No I'm sorry, we don't get much request for the Saints."


THEY HAD DETROIT, CLEVELAND, AND TAMPA BAY STUFF, BUT NOT EVEN A SAINTS KEY CHAIN!!! It was very upsetting, as you can see. I asked him, will you guys be getting any stuff before Christmas? "No." "Sorry."

I even told him that he was insulting me, by having Detroit Lions blankets, but not even a Saints bottle opener. Has anyone else ran into this???
same man i live in Baldwin Park, l.a. . went to a westfield mall in west covina. found some good saints gear. went down to carson near long beach didnt find jack ****. come down to LA theres a bunch of stuff good luck..

Re: The ULTIMATE disrespect!!!

That store owner was lying to you - he was probably a hardcore Niners fan and didn't want to tell you that all his Who Dat merchandise is going like hotcakes

If they have Saints stuff or not, it's kind of irrelevant, the point was, they had these other teams stocked! I have lived in NorCal for twenty plus years, and I have NEVER seen a Browns fan here. Thus, the dis, in my eyes.
..what I understand is that you are throwing a tantrum over nothing. "Disrespect"??? Geez...

Re: The ULTIMATE disrespect!!!

Here in Pensacola there isn't anything to speak of and there is actually a pretty large following. Lots of Jacksonville and Cowboy stuff. N.O is 3 hrs away and Jacksonville is close to 6. I guess Emmitt being from here keeps the Cowboy stuff going. I don't think he plays anymore but he can sure dance.
