Be Careful Of The Words You Say. Keep Them Soft And Sweet, Because You Never Know, From Day To Day, Which Ones You'll Have To Eat (Unknown Author – if you know the author please let me know)

Honesty in Business

When doing shopping make sure you have completed your shopping and your trolley or basket is complete before entering into the queue. Do not leave your trolley or basket to "hold" your place while you go about your shopping and keep going to and fro to fill your trolley, making others wait for you to complete your shopping before they who have completed shopping can get to the cashier.

Respect the rules of the store, if there is a fast queue for 10 items or less, don’t try to push in with 11 or 13 or 15 items. Purchase your 10 items or less just as the queue is labelled to be. 

When setting your prices, if the country in which you live does not have coins below 10 agarot or 10 cents, don’t mark any items with digits below 10. To do so would be stealing from the customer. e.g. if you are accustomed to charge 9.97 for an item because you think that being below 10 customers will be more likely to purchase the item, keep in mind, if there are no 7c, you are effectively stealing 3c. Hence either charge 9.90 or 10 or make sure you have 3c to give as change. Note you are actually accruing two Aveiras, 1) general theft ie theft of money and 2) Geneivat HaDa'at – stealing someone's mind by making them think they are getting something that they are not.
