Asian Stores
    #25053340 - 03/10/18 12:12 AM (3 years, 1 month ago)

Where I live there are a ton of asian owned quickie mart type deals. Bodegas is what my friend calls them. I call them beer stores without the gas. They sell all kinds of goods from kratom, meth pipes, etc etc. Everything found in a convenience store. Your pops and candies and microwaveable goods.

My issue with dealing with them across the town that i live in is there view on taxes. First off if your going to use a card they will charge you .50 cents every time. Unless over 5.00 but some may vary. Another is I generally buy beer off them. It's 1.39+ tax. In the state of Washington tax is like 9-10% can't remember exactly. It might be 8.9%.

So at one store it's 1.51. At the other it's 1.52. Went in with 1.55 to prepare for variance and at another it's 1.62. Washington state tax is a static thing it's not going anywhere. What's with the variance?

He floated me the 7 cents or whatever. As some will float you some change as they are the closest stores and most are places that the wife and husband work all day every day. 7 days a week for years and years on end. So i'd rather support them than 7/11 which I know will sell me booze whenever. Some of them have cut me off on a bender and I just shrugged. Ok.

A lot of small places do this. It’s annoying but they do it to make up for the fees they get charged.

Yea exactly I agree with it. They get charged. Large companies can absorb the fees they can't. I'm fine with it.  I get why they do it. But one store i'm a main customer as i go there all the time. I pull money out of my bank to just pay in cash. As that .50 cents adds up as much as i shop there. I purchased a bottle of kratom pills and still added the 50 cents. 20 bucks for about 1.75 ounces.

When I pay cash he'd rather count out .48 cents than float me the 2 pennies. As every time I pay in cash I float them the pennies. I don't want them :lol:

Some are great about floating as they know I will be back. I come into your store and spend money pretty much every day. Here's your nickle.

I'm more or less talking about the variance in price. The price in all 3 stores is 1.39+tax.

1.51,1.52,1.62

Where does that variance come from? Old ass tils or what?

Bleh no wonder I haven't been on this site in quite some time. I'm wondering about the variance in tax in small (insert whoever owns the bodegas around you) Variances. The price is the same. Yet the tax is calculated different on there crappy old school tils. Are they trying to grift ya. Who knows.

Washington state has the most complicated sales tax system I've ever seen. Every jurisdiction has their own rates.

So. You seconded a shitpost. Well done sheep-dips. If the OP weren't good enough for ya, you'll find fuk'all here worthy of your time, might as well fuk-off right now ya moorhens.

OP. We don't get sales tax added at the till. The 'labled price' is the price you pay in the UK, and throughout Europe, AFAIK, as it should be, IMO.

My local shops, both ran by Sri-Lankans, charge for card payments less than £5, though they both have free ATM's. One shop charges 20p more for the same beer than the other. The cheaper shop is on a council housing estate, the other's on a private housing estate. Maybe the "private estate" shop pays a higher buisness rate tax, or, their just greedier bastards. :shrug:

We got the same stores but they are owned by Indians from India, not Asians.

The fee sucks but seeing a "custom done" convienence store with all sorts of psuedo-lllegal stuff is pretty cool.

Theres one in my town with nitrous crackers called "bottle openers" :lol: And all sorts of crazy looking knifes and torch lighters. Pretty siiiick.

I assumed it was because you have been living the life with your $1.39 beer purchases.

We have similar stores but they are mostly run by Hindu's

I was in the Canaries around Christmas and they have Chinese stores selling ungodly variaties of cheap stuff. Like I have never before seen stores of limited size with such insane ranges of different merchandise. They sold fucking everything, never closed, had without exception Dragon in the store's name and were super cheap and awesome

That sounds badass. Sounds a lot like the open flea markets in Mexico. So much cool fucking shit there.

Ya same with the ones around here. No whippits though. I buy my kratom from one of them though. Like 2 ounces in capsules for 20$. Little spendy but it's like 17 servings at 4.5 grams a piece so whatever. It's definitely more convenient.

Another one across town is a full on glass shop. It's pretty neat.

And there Koreans here that own the bodegas. I don't mind supporting them over like a 711. All though that .50 cent fee for using your debit card is pretty annoying. Shit adds up over time.
