it's not fucking rocket science people.
And that's how shops go under, shop monkeys cutting deals for beer and shit.

I seriously doubt that is what happened. Always get rung up legit w/ receipt. Im not stupid, I might need to return something and I've also been a business owner in the past. However, you are free to think Im helping put shops under all you like. The shops Im sure prefer cash since credit card transactions cost them ~5%



let me spell it out for you since you didn't get it the first time. tip well and you will be rewarded.

I don't blame the customer in those situations and neither would the owner. He'd blame the shop monkey.

well, I would have to say some of the blame lays on the customer, esp if they didn't get a receipt. and that kind of scenario is NOT supporting your local shop. It's supporting your local dirt bag. I've done plenty of donating to that charity, it's called dating

Well I will buying for the first time this year. Last year was my first year ever and I traded my mountain bike for a used board, boots and bindings. I had been going into a local shop last season while inquiring about boards to buy and other info. They were super awesome, greatly helpful, super fun and ultimately let me demo a NS Raptor and Cobra before the season ended. Needless to say I am more than happy to spend my $$ there as I know I will be treated right!
