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.
Even if the brochures have to be paid for by the dealer, (rarely), if they're out on an unpriced rack, it is assumed that they're there for informational service, and should be considered a cost of doing business.
Never pass up the opportunity to pet your dog, talk to an old friend, or play catch with your kid.
