Chris Hickey: Don’t scare customers

Don’t scare customers

I was disappointed by the tone of your business article on the Little Leviathan shop (“Occult fascination leads to little shop of oddities, books” July 23). I found it dismissive of the wonderful range of antiques for sale.

As far as the oh-my-stars-and-garters wording used to describe the goods on sale – as well as the patrons and employees – I suggest that The N&O spend less time trying to scare the grannies who read your publication and a little more effort on showcasing a small business that actually tries to bring a little something new to the Triangle’s chain-store wasteland.
