The store was practically empty that day, Saturdays always were. Everyone hated Saturdays. It was the signaling of Sunday’s storm approaching. They only customers who came in on Saturdays were the ones who knew better. All the employees who were scheduled to come in Sunday, moped around, dreading having to deal with crazy customers. The ones who weren’t coming in walked around with a bounce in their step. Josh, was in a frenzy, making sure the store was fully stocked in every area. He kept hovering over Christina and Dylan as they arranged the shelves and made sure restocked the shelves. It wasn’t until Luis, a fellow employee, dragged him away, but even then, Josh managed to escape to bug Elias who was stuck on inventory duty again with Liam, another employee.

They noticed a sign at Bosetti’s (a very expensive store) that was a contest for a five minute shopping spree. On Monday, August 26 Bosetti’s called and said the Dingman’s won the shopping spree.

Some days Linda, the owner, would leave and go on errands for the bakery or would get migraines and go home for the day. Nothing would change when she left other than the fact of locking up. There was only one manager who has worked in the bakery since the day it opened, Taylor. Taylor was a kind hearted soul who would help anyone in need. She would always be willing to stay late or come in early with a smile on her face. I looked up to this method and copied this in my work with the bakery.
The store associates are dressed in the season's latest looks marketing to the incoming customers. The music is blasting with a bohemian and beachy tunes, which parents may not appreciate but it was what makes the adolescents happy. The store appeals to your senses all in order to make you buy more. I find my friends and me drooling over all the new clothes in stock.

There is a reason why as soon as I walk into the store I have the overwhelming urge to buy everything in the store, or at least try everything I see. The way they layout the all the clothes in the table it's not a mistake they are simply encouraging the feel of being at home and radiating a comfortable feeling so their customers can relax, touch the clothing, and spend more money. If the conditions are right the customer will be able to buy anything. The stores uses colors to appeal to the sense of sight of the customers a feeling of happiness which would cause them to shop more. However my favorite conditions of all times are clearance because I love a great deal. When you see the signs outside the store saying the sales are here yet again or when you get an email with special coupon always gives me a sense of

With much frustration, Drew was leaving when the
