“See you later”. That’s what the attendant at Quick Trip said to me as I walked out the door. Did I know him? Nope, in fact, it was the first time I had been in that store. QT is well known for their clean stores and friendly staff. I have heard they have a top flight employee training program. The main reason I stop there, however, is the incredible drink bar they offer. I pop in frequently for a large cup of un-sweet iced tea. But back to the “See you later”. It dawned on me that they casually say this almost every time! It’s a little mini hook. It’s as if they are saying, “You will be back, we know you will… we’re your neighborhood store after all.” It beats the overused “Come back and see us” which I never know how to respond to. It’s informal, familiar, and downright brilliant. See you later.
