We have a customer whose special orders have been brought to my attention by other booksellers. He has purchased books of photography by Sally Mann and Jock Sturges and other titles with the same theme, i.e., naked children (these had to be special ordered b/c we don't keep them in the store). We have also rung him up for unusual magazine purchases, such as Playboy, Maxim...and American Girl Magazine. Together. While this is technically all circumstantial, it really does seem like he's a pedophile or working up to it. So the question is, should we ban him from our store? Or should we just try to keep him out of Kids? Or should we allow him, as a PAYING customer, to do whatever he wants, which is how we usually operate? Granted most of them just want to us to hold their books indefinitely or construct a conference table in the cafe...Anyway, I personally think we should throw him out.
