Whenever I cashier, I always ask if anyone offered them help rather than gave them help. More often than not, someone tries and offers but I don't want/need it; the employees should not be penalized for me being independent.
As others have said on here, Boyd's is a bit of a mixed bag. You're going to get much better prices than most comparable places, especially in Philly. The salesmen work on commission, which makes them incredibly aggressive. I have received the snarky looks before when wearing casual clothing....I was coming home from class, am I really going to wear more than jeans and a button down?
