Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Bookstore interview
Any store loves to hire people who are passionate about their company. Good customers are your best advocates, so it's a great idea to turn them into dedicated employees. Now is your opportunity to share any specific customer experiences you have had there. Be sure to tell the interviewer how frequently you shop at their bookstore.
Basic answer example
"I frequently shop for books for myself, and others, at your bookstore. I appreciate that you offer free coffee to keep me shopping for awhile and have the latest selection of books that interest me. Your gift section is great as well. I would say that I shop here at least twice per month."
Entry Level answer example
"I have shopped here many times before and am a big advocate for supporting local business. Every experience in your bookstore is positive which is why I am applying here. Your customer service is excellent, and your coffee shop makes the best macchiatos!"
Experienced answer example
"I shop for books here probably once per month. Your customer service comes through when needed, which is what keeps me coming back. I once custom ordered a book from your store. There was an issue, and the book did not arrive for six weeks. Your team went above and beyond in keeping me informed and providing 20% off when the book finally arrived. That level of customer care is not something you can find on Amazon or elsewhere. It was the personal touch that keeps me an avid customer."

How often do you shop for books here?
As often as I can, really, I've always loved the slection you have and the store in general is very calming to me.
If I had the money, probably weekly. I also have a large pile of books that I have an still need to read. I've been good about not buying new books until I make a greater dent.
Often, I browse your selection at least once a week.
I am new here ...But liked the stuff at your store and I plan to ship very often for the things ehiwhic I need.
Questions and answer.
I would say my family and I stop in here every time one of us finishes a book, and we decide we need another on hand. So, let's say if my brother finishes his book of the week, my mom and I tag along to also pick out a new book. Basically we all have a stack of revolving books by our bedsides that we haven't even touched, yet we still feel the need to keep the stack of books no less than 5 high.
Every 2 or 3 times a week.
I was here last week to buy a book. And three weeks before that.
To be truth, I never had been into your bookstore. I used to come different bookstores as I found my peace in a bookstore.

Depends upon the collections available; if anything suits my interest, I would purchase regardless of its cost; casually, I make a purchase once in a week by searching through the new collections in the website.

Not that often. I usually use the library because I don't reread books because my TBR is too large.
I drop by once or twice a month. I am subscribed to your mailing list so I always try to come whenever I am notified that there is a new release in the store. Other than that, I also shop for book accessories and gift merchandise here.
About once or twice a month. I am subscribed to your mailing list so that I am updated when you have special sales and promotions and I can take advantage of that. I find it refreshing to find a wide array of Christian books all in one location.
