Close Up With The X-E1

I have always been interested in close up photography
and with my trusted old Pano. LX3 I could get within 1 cm.
Today I went into my local digital shop where I purchased
my X-E1 with the 18 - 55 lens with the intention of purchasing
the 60mm 2.4 macro lens. I could get no closer than about 20cm -
which is not much better than my 18 - 55 lens can achieve.
The guy behind the counter had no solution to my question of
how do I get closer?

Is my only option buying a close-up lens to screw on to the front of
my existing lens? This does not seem satisfactory.

I did enquire about the M mount adapter which apperently can be used
on the Fuji which will enable expensive Leica lenses to be used.
Way above my price range.
Is it possible to take very close up images with the Fuji?
p.s. sorry if this has been covered already.
