so you guys dont appreciate mantique's over the top customer service + casual conversing.
AND you dont appreciate boysco's laid back 'feel free to help urself' type of service.

what is it that you shoppers look for?
this is by no means some kinda hate post, just curious.

an equilibrium of those, people who do their job by greeting you and even acknowledging your existance or that you're a valued patron, and are readily available to help and easy to approach when you need it (not talking to co-workers or slacking off somewhere), and not when you don't.

places like boysco and mantique are on 2 extremes of a spectrum. one pretends you're not even there, giving them and their store name a shitty and egotistic attitude while places like mantique basically serve to verbally rape you into making a purchase, which kind of crosses the line of comfort and shopping freely and comfortably.

fuck shopping at malls, seriously. If you guys want some good ass service, hit up places like main, gastown, and etc. Thats where i buy most of my clothing now. They have great service and is always great to talk to too.

that guy at metro is a big douche. came up to me once and started bragging about how he had mutual funds and investments set up, and how he was set for life. I walked out the door right after that. You work at mantique...how about you get a real job first.

you must remember those people are probably stuck in the store all day!!!! Maybe their just trying to be nice? or maybe you're the first person to walk in for a while and they feel social?

..... maybe you're over thinking it too much, let the people do their jobs! If you're not comfortable do something about it!!

This guy sounds really hated. Just go and punch him in the face dammit..

Last time I went 2 years ago, they acted just like everyone says. Anyhow, a young guy went in and quickly bought something which later turned out to be a credit card fraud. The Mantique guy hustled through the crowds of people searching for the man who made the fraud. He soon gave up on the search and randomly told me it was his birthday..
