Sometimes you get impressed by people who do their jobs with flare and style.
Meet Brent*. He had this to say over the break:
Without a doubt, had the BEST retail experience in NZ at the @nike store in Wellington amidst their Boxing Day sale. Total professionals!

* This is not a story about Brent being amazing. Sorry.
I was in the mood for some new workout gear, so saddled up the horse and wandered into said Nike. They were amazing. Stress free, helpful advice, nothing was a problem, everything available in my size (often a trick, because Medium is right in the middle of the bell curve of standard distribution — I tend to find only size skeleton or bison are left locally). I got my workout gear, a new hoodie, and a smile.
The outlaws decided to gift us with a sum of money as our Christmas present, and with that we decided to buy a new Weber (more on this in a future post, possibly). We cruised into Wellington BBQs and Fire, which is a fantastic name for a store, I mean fire is right there in the name, and … had all our questions answered. Guy was super helpful, knew his product, didn’t over-accessorise us, taught us some tricks, and they even made all the packing material fuck off to a happier place.
The take-home is:
- If you want a new BBQ, go to Wellington BBQs and Fire.
- If you want to run off the excess created by a new BBQ, go to Nike on Lambton Quay and get some excellent workout gear.
