Unlike the scenes in the movie Pretty Woman I have never run in to rude or snooty sales clerks. Everywhere I have shopped, stayed or dined in Beverly Hills I have been treated very well. Money is money and evidently the merchants believe that if you may afford to buy their goods or services you might be greater than welcome in their establishment. Since nowadays it is difficult to inform by looks who has money and who does not it’s easier and safer for the merchants to treat everyone as if they’re wealthy.
