Google Maps for sure. Never have a problem finding where to go on vacation or I'm in a car without navigation. Works awesome, and provides restaurants, lodging and many other things anyone would need when they are out of town. My Cleveland Browns app is cool too. It barks...

In-store pick-up orders are less risky, if the inventory is on hand. If the systems set up in-store are done right, I don't see any problems with this. Specialty orders for meat and deli catering services would probably require extra time. My cut-off for deli or bakery items is...

Amazon doesn't lose a thing providing this service, and haggling online isn't new. The sellers will have to accept the offer, and still pay the fee, so why not. The wild wild west of retailing is now available at Amazon. I'm curious to see how well this goes, because...

It is definitely tougher than years ago. Look at how the landscape of retail has changed. The malls and strip plazas that once dominated are now being replaced by huge Walmart Supercenters and the wholesale clubs, plus the dollar store craze. Let us not forget the ever-expanding giant called...

Another major intrusion from our government, and I for one can not stand this. The costs to do this right are high, and the fools that pass this law have zero clue about how to run a supermarket or a convenience store. I know I am going to catch...

If done right, this could go well. Panera and local pubs would be where Starbucks could gain the business from, and quality must be high, along with value, which could be an issue. Their pastries are already expensive, and if they get into some niche sandwiches, it better be...

Amazon is like the Godfather, as they want a cut of everything IMO. If contractors are willing to pay this fee, then fine. To me a really good service company or contractor would not need this service, as they have plenty of work in the pipeline because of their...

Price in my area for groceries is KING, and differing economies make price an issue where in the poor rural areas, it becomes even more important. Yes service, knowledge, great customer service, and in-stock conditions do mean something, but the price or perception of the best price will win...

Bricks and mortar stores can not change the tax code, and this fight for small businesses like mine is wasting precious time. I know what is needed to survive, and even knowing what to do doesn't guarantee success.

What is the strength of small business? The people who represent your...
