Default local store

I went into my local store last night and was surprised to see that they now carry AF and 3kings so i wont have to buy all my shisha and coals online anymore.

I apologize to all vendors that wont get my orders anymore.

+1 Except the ones around here are Armenian grocery stores and the people working at the one I usually go to are cool except this one lady. Every time I walk in there, she gives me a dirty look like I'm about to steal something >:| FUnny thing is, she never looks at anyone else like that when I'm in there.

Thought I was paranoid until I brought me friends one time with me and she would not chill the f*** out and she kept giving us dirty ass looks like we were gonna rob stuff. Good thing I don't see her working there nowadays

Age does have its benefits. When I was in my teens and 20s I would get those looks too. Now - nothing, nada. Wrinkles have their benefits.

Nah, she knows my age and she knows I'm legal to buy tobacco products. She still looks at me after months and months of buying

My friend who went with me don't even look like minors eitehr so I don't know what da heck her prob is.

My local stores should be burned to the ground with the owners still in them.

They're exactly what Speel and Jilly described and then some.

Damn! You're a little harsh there... Probably talkin' bout people who've been in the old country all their lives and still not comfortable with their socal skills here... just chill and be respectful if you enter their store, they shouldn't give problems and you all might end up getting along. Enough of the bashing.

Xenophobia should be best left at home.

Some of them even appear to be like the snake you see writhing on the ground. Their cold eyes watching your every move and that venomous mouth opening and saying, "are you going to buy anything or not?"

These people are not here to help you out, they're there just for the money.

You got a prob if you take that shit personal, I guess its all preferance. Most people want your money especially if they run a business. If it doesn't make sense just don't buy!

Well I understand that they may not be comfortable...But the other workers there are nice to me and everyone else except that one particular woman.

Well, I don't exactly have a choice now do I? They are the only hookah store around that has the goods that I wanna buy so

Doesn't bother me much to tell the truth since I haven't seen her there in months

Damn right I have a problem with them trying to shoo me out the door. I want to see what they have to offer, but instead I'll just look someplace else.

Actually, I don't buy from them much since their prices are nutrageous.

The Stores around here are pretty cool about things. We have a few of them and I have never had a problem with them.

Check the prices, I haven't found any local shops that have prices even close to our awesome vendors.
