If a customer complains about something that you have a great opinion on… don’t share it. They are in your shop and anything you say will reflect on your entire business. It’s not just YOUR opinion anymore; it’s the opinion of your entire company. If it's not an opinion that defines the product you're selling (I'd be surprised if a gun store wouldn't weigh in on something like Open Carry), don't comment. If I'm picking up a pizza from you, I don't want to hear your opinions on the Affordable Care Act.
