So they never have ISP CDs by the tills? Or charity boxes?

Did you suggest to them that, perhaps, some people would deliberately 
visit their store if there was such a thing, and that getting people into 
the shop is the hardest battle for them in the days of internet shopping, 
and an associated sell might be useful?

Perhaps suggesting that they run a CD toaster of some sort - no reason why 
they couldn't charge a bit for burning some CDs for people? (
