I was at a shoe store yesterday and was trying on shoes and at the end I decided not to buy and the salesman said I could keep the shoehorn (btw, which had the name of the store on it), so I did. Now here are some questions I am wondering about: Do shoe stores usually give out a lot of shoe horns? Is this like free advertising for the store? But who else would look at the shoe horn except me? What if I already had a shoe horn at home and the sales associate didn't know? What can I do with these extra shoe horns? Why would shoe horns be given away for free? Do they only give you the shoe horn if you don't buy a pair of shoes?
