Letter: No one needs all the discounts

I owned Omni Hobby and Games in Fargo for 20 years. Customers asked, “Do you give a senior discount? Do you give a student discount? Do you give members of a hobby club a discount? Do you give members of a game club a discount? Do you give a military discount? Do you give a family discount?”

One answer: No. Everyone pays the same. It was my store; if you shopped there, that was up to you. I wouldn’t fall into people’s discount traps.

Do I go into Hornbacher’s and ask, “I’m a member of a club of food eaters. Can I get a discount?” My guess is the answer is no.
