(Pointe) Fitting Etiquette - The Client Guide

(Pointe) Fitting Etiquette - The Client Guide

"Overall, when you think of Fitting Etiquette, think of how you treat your appointments for a doctors office or other specialty service such as a mechanic: you take the time to schedule according to not just your availability but also the providers. At a clinic or repair shop, you expect wait-times and check ahead to ensure the time you should arrive to be seen and serviced the same day....The same should go for when you shop at Footlights."
