When you are going to invest your money into something as expensive as a new guitar, it helps for the clerk to be knowledgeable on all of their products. If the clerk can’t answer any of your questions and has no idea what you are talking about, you are going to have a bad experience and probably not want to even buy your new guitar from that specific shop.
It is a big investment to buy a brand new guitar and if you are not able to get all of the information that you need on what you are interested in, you could end up purchasing a guitar that you will end up not wanting because it is not the right one for you.
It is almost like buying a new car. You would not want to buy a brand new car that you have no information on because the clerk could not answer your questions and had no idea what you were talking about.
Purchasing My New Guitar
When I went to buy my new guitar at the local shop, I had a slight idea of what I wanted to buy. There was so many different guitars to choose from and a lot I had never seen or heard of before. All of the guitars that I seemed to know nothing about, were the guitars that I took more interest in.
Unfortunately for me, the clerk that day was very unhelpful. When I am going to invest a lot of money into a new guitar, I like to know all about the guitar.
The clerk could barely answer any of my questions on any of the guitars. They were able to answer very basic questions, but not anything else. I was having a hard time trying to figure out why this clerk even worked here or how they got the job in the first place. It was not just the fact that the clerk knew nothing about any of the guitars, but they seemed to be frustrated by all of my questions.
The clerk kept getting an attitude with me and did not seem to care about my business in the first place. I do not know if they were just having a bad day or not but regardless of that, they had no idea of any information of any products in the guitar shop.
I’m Not The Expert
I am not an expert in guitars and when you go to a local shop that specializes in that product, they tend to know all of the information on their products as well. This clerk at the local shop knew nothing and did not even care to better assist me if possible. They did not even suggest coming back on a day where someone would be there that could answer my questions.
The clerk did not seem to care that my business was going to walk out of the door and go somewhere else. I had such an awful experience with the clerk that I will not ever go back to this local shop again.
