Ask For Shopping Assistance

An innovation to get all those salespeople to leave you the hell alone while you’re shopping has finally arrived.

On Thursday, a Reddit user shared a photo of a shopping basket rack inside an Innisfree, a Korean beauty store located throughout Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan.

The basket with the green sign indicates the shopper doesn’t need assistance, while the orange sign indicates the shopper may.

“There are three salespeople for every customer, hovering around following you all around the store even if you tell them you’re fine,” one user commented. “So it’s really cool to see some innovation.”

Most people regardless of anxiety level would probably be completely on board with having the ability to just peruse the aisles without getting accosted by an Eager Edgar. Not that there’s anything wrong with a customer service employee being helpful and doing his or her job, but sometimes shopping alone is the only opportunity to get a little peace and quiet throughout the week.
