From what we all know, most sales people are concerned about selling and making their commission. I have to say that the sales people at my LFS actually cares and only sell me what is needed. The LFS is like a fish supply super store with 2 stories. These two guys there are enthusiast themselves and have several tanks at home. It is refreshing to know that these kinds of sales people exist. I will give some examples. From the very beginning, "K", never tried to over sell me. He knew I was new to this hobby. He had the opportunity to sell me on all kinds of stuff but he did not. He helped me get enough to start. While helping me get live sand, he saved me $14 because he found a bag that was the same brand and was the same thing but had different SKU numbers. He then sold me enough live rocks to start with and actually picked out nicer rocks and gave me a premium rock for non-premium price. He even gave me his personal number and I was text him for advice and steps to get my tank started. The other sales guy I deal with there, "M", never tried to over sell me either. Recently I bought some coral because they had an anniversary sale of buy 2 get 1 free. He helped me choose the right corals that would survive with my current light system. He didn't try to over sell me on extra coral food when I didn't need it. Just yesterday, "K", told me to come by on Tuesday and he will bring me a 5 gallon jug of RO water for free. These guys are really cool and helpful. So, my point is that there are still sales people that care and truly love what their doing.
