re: the post where you demanded that we email the liquor store about bringing back the coolers...

this is the response i got:

Thank you for taking the time to write.

The 39th & Cambie government liquor store is currently undergoing a
significant renovation, which is expected to be complete by December 2005.
The removal of the coolers - as part of this renovation - will create more
space, in turn increasing product selection and enhancing customers' retail
experience in our flagship store.

Please visit again.

so i don't think they'll be bringing the coolers back. oh well.

yeah, they didn't respond to my email. Perhaps I overwhelmed them with my straightforward logical request. Or perhaps I should have added a question mark so they'd feel obliged to reply. obligated. obliged. kinda looks like a bunch of letters all thrown together... sounds like it too. obligated. obliged. obligated. obliged. obligated.

Coolers are good and all, but increasing product selection AND enhancing my customer retail experience? Hmmm... My customer retail experience could use enhancement... (I just about typed enchancement there. That's my new word, I think...)

I didn't get a reply like that, either. if I did, I'd reply to them and tell them that I won't stand for their elitist ways! I know that their "renovations" are targetting the fancy-wine connaisouers. and if they think that selling 2 $100 bottles of wine is more important to them than selling 10 cases of cold beer then I think they know where they can stuff it! yeah! hoo ha!

we need more people to complain. must find a way to increase complaints... maybe russ can write a script? :)

oh. I did get a reply from them. I guess we all will, just not all that quickly. so I did reply....
"good for you. I'd love to hear more about your plans to "enhance customers' retail
experience in your flagship store." which customers, in particular, are you talking about? you want to enhance my retail experience? get some coolers. until then, I'll be shopping at the cold beer and wine stores.

have fun with your "flagship".

what a jerk, huh?

the trick is to leave lots of comments because they go straight to gwilli's email, which might prompt him to get todays issue out sooner. or later.

the r should be silent on this one. this is a very serious issue. it is very dear to my heart, and to mah belly!! beer needs to be cold!!! in a civilized world, it would only be sold cold. in a civilized world, we'd be able to drink on the street. in a civilized world, there would be no mustangs on the road! in a civiliz...
