You even don't know products, price, etc. So you tell the owner you don't interested offer.

You tried a few products, and thought maybe come back later this week. You're leaving the store.

And the owner yelling at you again. "Don't go! 20% OFF for you!"

After a few days you just stopped by the same boutique.

The owner yelling you excatly same things again.
