Doug wrote me a great email about a customer they had at his store:
“The other night at our store in the Atlanta area,, a woman came to the young P-T cashier with her purchase—the boxed set of Fifty Shades— and a package of batteries… … …One heckuva challenge for the cashier to keep a neutral smile on her face while ringing that combo up 🙂
“When i heard the story, i suggested we try to upsell all purchases of the trilogy….hey we now stck batteries,, and there’s that great bargain book on knots…”

I took it further with those “what if” ideas and wondered if The Bookstore would respond by stocking certain items for pairing up with those titles…
Doug, thanks so much for the email!!
