MY SHOES are wearing thin in the sole, so it was time to go shopping. Being a male I wanted to replace them with another pair exactly the same, so I gave the Edgars fashion hotline a call. Even with all the normal introductory messages I got through to a consultant in less than 20 seconds, which was quite impressive.
While I wasn’t trying to be deliberately vague, I only knew the brand of shoe that I was looking for and a rough description of the style. But the agent sounded a little sceptical about whether he’d be able to find what I was looking for from the little information I could provide. However, he came through.
Not only did he provide me with the style number for the shoes I was looking for he also gave me a rundown of the stores in the Jo’burg area that had them in stock and even how many pairs in my size were available at each store. Once I’d told him which store I was likely to go to he provided its phone number in case I wanted to contact them directly.
Now all that remains is to brave the mall and find someone to help me in store.
