Things Ain't What They Used to Be!

Doing some late night Christmas shopping I called into a long established Newcastle music store - one I'm not totally unfamiliar with - the object being to buy a Curtis Stigers CD for a friend. I browsed alphabetically through Jazz/ Rock & Pop/Easy Listening - even World Music! No sign of Stigers, C.
I approached the bright looking young chap behind the counter and asked him where I could find Curtis Stigers. He looked blank, I was half expecting him to say that Mr Stigers is on a tea break but then he turned to a computer screen - "How do you spell his second name?" He asked.
"S-T-I." I began then said, "Ah forget it!" and turned on my heel and left.
The store's motto used to be "If you can't get it at ......... you won't get it anywhere".
Haven't heard it said recently...
