I know I am a dinosaur, but for crying out loud, let the employees stay home and open up on Friday early. Retailing has become a nightmare for many workers who could use an entire day with their family, but again, it doesn't matter what I think, as the...

I know I'm late on this topic, but controlled sampling is how we do it. We don't just lay out a tray on top of the deli and let people eat, as this does not work and it is unsanitary. We control the sampling by asking each customer if...

Mr. Tindell can pay his workers whatever he chooses, but he does not walk in my shoes, or any other small business that does their absolute best every day to compete. I pay my staff pretty well, but the high school workers get minimum wage (call me cheap or...

Another winner to communicate with people who love using the high-tech way to shop. It certainly will help keep sales in Amazon's pockets.

Millennial's may be different, but they do rely on WOM, even if it is on a social platform. All of us in business want good karma from our customers, and believe me, if you screw up, the word gets out there fast. On the other hand, if you go...

If McDonald's wants to remain relevant, than they can upgrade the quality of the food and maybe I will go back. The quality of their product is bottom of the barrel, and the burgers are really small. How about some low-carb and gluten free options, and some real veggies...
