I'm frankly mystified by it. These days with internet efficiency, selection, and price competition, great service is the absolute key to success. We had a local stop that had been around for a long time. The dozen or so times I was in there over the past 5 years the service made me so angry that I would have paid more anywhere else rather than give them a dime (not that their prices were really competitive to the internet anyway). That shop is closed now--deservedly so imo.

I think you should write the owner of the store--not a mean letter, just a matter of fact letter. It may not seem nice to the employee, but in the long run it could save the shop.

Best,

Seth
