There cannot be a perfect review of a product or service. This is a very important lesson that all organizations need to pay attention to as they shape their customer service expectations and evaluate their personnel. Becoming too good to be true, can do more harm than good, is...

Communication will be the biggest issue as both of these companies seek to coexist within the same store. There will be some cannibalization of OTC products, but the biggest issue will be communication with the consumer, and communication between both companies, their employees, and their suppliers.

Who will pay top dollar for a product when they can purchase it for much less and get it delivered...

American consumers really don't care if their stores are filled with robots or people. The real answers are if their stores have the right products at the right prices.
