Simple eye contact with a smile or greeting will suffice, inviting the customer to peruse and let them know it's a friendly place. After they've entered and are comfortable within the store, usually within 60 seconds, approach and create a conversation, whereby they then feel comfortable enough to ask for help in their choice or at least let you know how you may help. 2) Listen t? ??ur customer Is th?r? ?n?th?ng m?r? exasperating th?n telling s?m??n? wh?t ??u w?nt ?r wh?t ??ur problem ?s ?nd th?n discovering th?t th?t person h?sn't b??n paying attention ?nd n??ds t? h?v? ?t explained ?g??n or offers a totally inappropriate product?
