Knowledge of Product - Pipes and Pipe Tobacco

While Zelda Cigar has a fine selection of pipe tobacco, the owner can provide little to no advice for first time pipe smokers regarding a good starter tobacco. They have a decent selection of starter pipes, as well as pipes that fall in the mid-ranged price category, but again, one should not expect suggestions or advice for those new to, or those who are first time pipe smokers. Just as general business common sense, one would expect some type of guidence from the staff from one degree to another, otherwise why bother carrying such items in the first place? I am semi-new to pipe smoking, and all it took to strike my interest and contribute to my motivation as a pipe smoker was a little bit of internet research. I really only know the basics, but it would be, and would have been so much nicer to learn what I had to look up from the staff at the store!!! As I frequent the store strictly for the purchase of my pipe tobacco, I cease asking for advice or for suggestions that would surely encourage me to "walk on the wild side" and try a new flavor. From my experience, the atmosphere and the tone that is set upon walking in the front door is, "I don't know, I'm no help, get what you need, and move on out!!!" I have only visited this place 3 times, maybe 4, and there has only been one person on duty every time. I never caught the lady's name, but I do believe that she owns the place, or manages it at best. I am not a cigar smoker, so for those of you out there who are and have visited Zelda Cigar, your story may be different than mine. My final thought on this matter: in the retail world, if you are going to make available products geared toward a specific category of customers, generally speaking, then be able to cater to their needs. Research just a little for them. There is no use owning an automotive shop if you don't even know what a car is.
