Say what you will about Gamestop. I hated them for years. I used to be solely a Best Buy customer, but they want to sell you everything under the sun instead of just ringing you out. I got sick of it, even though I was a regular customer. Sure, Gamestop offered me preorders and all that crap the first couple of times I went in the store, but once they recognized my face, they checked me out happily, and occasionally I would preorder stuff. No upselling from my store. They are awesome.
Meh, big business always runs the way it thinks to make a profit. Unfortunately, they do not realize I make the decision of whether or not I want to shop at their store. No matter where you go, somebody will be upselling. Will the employees actually notice when I stop showing up? Who knows, but if they are smart, they will find the balance between what they have to do and what their customer wants. Whenever I have employees treat me with respect, I will return. Simple as that.
