Here is a great children’s bookstore in Albuquerque:
Alamosa Books, 8810 Holly Avenue NE #D, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87122; 505-797-7101.
We carry a broad selection of fiction, ranging from picture books and early readers to young adult literature and classics. We carry science fiction, fantasy, mystery, adventure, graphic novels, poetry, international titles, and have a whole wall of general fiction, including many books that speak to teen issues.
One day, while walking through his store, Marshall Fields saw a clerk arguing with a customer.
“What are you doing?” he asked.
“I’m settling a complaint,” the clerk replied.
“No, you’re not,” Field corrected. “Give the lady what she wants.”
And that became the store’s motto.
Are you giving your customers what they want? If not, why not?
If you want your store to survive in these tough times, start by giving your customers what they want. And that’s service, real service, bending over backwards service.
