Unusual shop without the seller in Norway
• Unusual shop without the seller in Norway
In southern Norway, a lot of small farms, and these farms there are shops that sell what is grown and produced on that same farm. I have been to one of these stores.
They sold fresh eggs, preserves and jams, vegetables, potatoes and all kinds of knitted items for children. You come into it, prilavochek on all four walls. I took of this and that, but what happened next just broke my awareness and understanding of trade in principle.
Taking something that was needed, it would pay off, but found some problem ... In the shop completely absent seller ... But in one of the corners is a calculator, where you think, how much to pay and such a box full of money, where you have to put money purchased goods and take him back!
Yes Yes! All of it is true, all on complete trust and honesty. Nothing prevents to take simple and go, but no one does. Picked vegetables, weighed, counted how many should put the money and took the change. Nearby there was not a single living soul, except for a couple of cows in the barn and chickens running around, the owners of the farm work and have no time to be in this store. Took that it was necessary to pay, he took the change and went home. And it is in order. Until then, I like shopping not found anywhere else. They say that something like this is, in some cantons of Switzerland, but it was not and I can not confirm, as seen here and even bought.
So the question arises, is it possible we?
That's how it all looks:
The potato there is very tasty:
Cabbage piece, not per kg:
Something is over:
Fresh farm eggs:
Children's clothing and every everything:
Pay at the corner of jam:
A little farm:
A more unusual shops I have not seen anywhere, ever, and I do not know if our trade I can also surprise with something else. Although I know one person who could do it, I am quite sure exactly what he will do in the near vremni, wait - we'll see.
By the way, there are several distinctive features of trade in Russia and Western Europe. These features are only two:
1. Always and everywhere, there will surrender to you with ANY denomination, in any shop and any store. Of course, this may be due to the fact that every night our stores rent money in the bank, but take McDonald's, there even at 7 am you will surrender to the bill in 5000 rubles (I had such a time) and asked not to see something then the smaller. We also sometimes banknote of 500 rubles is complexity. There is even an anecdote: in Russia to 10 am bill in 1000 rubles is invalid because there is no surrender. 2. Always and everywhere, in all the smallest shop in any remote village you can pay by credit card. We do not have that in every store, and sometimes after driving from St. Petersburg, and the question of the admission card is better not to ask. For example, a chain of stores "Pyaterochka" not all its supermarkets accept credit cards. And in the rest of the assortment planning or shopping, we sometimes even surpass Europe, although there are difficulties.
