Getting the Hookup at Local Market

I've been going to this small market a few blocks down from my office for several years. Sometimes I'm in there a few times a week for a bag of chips or soda and then there are other times where I don't stop in for weeks.

I just noticed this week that the owner, an older Asian gentleman (this is in Chinatown) who I think owns the store, is giving me a discount. I went in twice this week to get a soda and noticed it both times.

It's a small thing, a dime here and a nickel there, but it's enough to make me think they know me and appreciate my business. With that kind of feeling, why would I ever go to CVS where I'm just one of a hundred customers in line waiting to get shuffled through?
