Why do people in New York want you to buy their stuff so bad?

When I was in New York shopping I found that many of the people who worked in little markets wanted you to buy their stuff so badly and it makes me curious as to why.

    There are tens of thousands of these "little shops" in NYC competing for your business. If they don't sell anything, they don't make any money and if they don't make money, they can't eat. That's not difficult to understand

    You've never been to other countries, have you? In some places, people follow you down the street, hounding you to buy things from them. You just have to master saying a very definite "No!"
