This doesn’t happen very often

Friday, January 8th, 2010

In our three short years in business we have had many occasions to be frustrated by the buying behemoth that is Amazon. It is impossible for independent brick and mortar book stores to compete with their muscle. We choose not to fret over them for the most part, we provide something they cannot: service, opinion, personality. And Raleigh. But occasionally we must remark on their existence. This is one of those moments. Currently they are out of stock of Thomas Keller’s newest book, Ad Hoc at Home. In fact they have not had the book since well before Christmas, prime shopping season. Ask me, just go on and ask me, do we have the book….?

Well, yes we do…..

Snicker… Sometimes the little guy outthinks the giant.
