I have been in several Fry’s stores through the southwestern US. I have learned not to expect the world from the sales staff. I was looking for a new mouse for my wife. She has a particular affinity for a certain style scroll wheel. I wanted to see if I could find one.
Though there were several mouses on display as part of a mouse/keyboard combo, they did not have any of the standalone mouses on a display rack. I found one that I wanted to touch and feel and asked the salesman if I could see a display model of that mouse. He promptly told me “No, we don’t have any displays of any of our mouses.” I said that I needed to touch it before I would buy it. To which he said that the package was form fitting enough to get a feel for the mouse. Well, of course, you can’t feel the scroll wheel through the plastic. I asked if we could open it, to which he said no. So, I told him I would not be making a mouse purchase that day. It was fine with him.
Then I took a stroll through the rest of that department. I saw 22 different mouses on display attached to computer display models. I would have laughed if I was not so angry.
I then wandered through the rest of the store not interested in purchasing anything after that.
