This is all in the training and philosophy of Wegmans, which is why they are tops in many things. Their pharmacy has employees who must act the same as the cashiers in how they treat customers, and it is a great extension of how they do business. Professionalism in...

Social media is sometimes a can't-win no matter what, and in this case McDonald's looks bad to a large segment of the population. However, Burger King is in the drivers seat and they know it, as it would help the awareness of their burgers for a good cause.

McDonald's has...

Trader Joe's is one of several retailers that seek out hot spots where incomes are very high, and newer developments with young people who like the experience of shopping their stores. The real estate values would go up anyway, as other high-end stores want the same real estate knowing...

This may work for Netflix and other high tech companies fighting for good talent, but in my world it is unaffordable. Paid leave for up to a year sounds nice, and who wouldn't want to have it, and again, if your bottom lines are sound then go for it....

Well thought-out videos and outstanding clear photos in 3-D would help to let us see the product and enjoy a user-friendly video. There are some good instructional videos on how to operate a new camera or cell phone, and that stuff I like. Real emotion comes from interaction with...
