My experience is exactly the same.  No one there ever seems to 
want to go out of their way for a customer.  No one has ever
asked me that question there either.  All the people who hang
there seem to be nice people when you talk to them -- elsewhere.

I agree 100%.  It's ridiculous that Halifax does not have a decent 
indie store.  We have the radio station, we have the nightclub,
we just don't have a record store.  Unless you count Sam's, which
as Mike says at least carries more indie stuff than Dischord.
