Excuse me, but I believe brochures free or not, are put there to advertise the products a specific company has available for purchase. People are expected to take them home and browse through them at their leisure possibly buying something from the brochure at a later date. I've never heard of any business requiring me to purchase something before I could take a free brochure. Of course, if the owner had to pay for the brochure I can understand a nominal fee being charged. I've browsed hundreds of establishments without making a purchase and freely taken brochures where available and have never been rudely insulted or intentionaly embarrassed for doing so.
I don't believe in intuition but I have a strange feeling someday I will.

There are three types of people in the world; those that can count and those that can't.
