My family loves reading and supporting small businesses so we were excited to take my twin three year olds to pick out some new books. After picking out a stack of books to buy, the owner walked up to me and informed me I had to buy a noise-making board book one of my sons had been pushing for several minutes before putting it back (on the lower shelf, at his eye level) because she can’t sell it after it being pushed over and over again apparently. I then put all of the other books I had intended to purchase back and only purchased this book. When my husband intervened and said we weren’t buying this, she told me that we should be better parents for allowing him to play with a book that was displayed at his level. This experience was extremely disappointing and saddening. I will be sure to never shop at this store ever again and would encourage anyone else with small children to do the same.
