Antidotes for the Poisoned Job Scene

Filed under: Marketplace — Yvonne LaRose @ 9:03 PM

There’s an interesting story in today’s headlines about the best and worst places for shopping according to some shoppers’ polls. The interesting thing that one can glean from this story is the reason why merchandising is facing some challenges right now. It also means some of the easy find jobs in retail are going to start becoming scarce if we’re not careful.

First of all, the survey respondents talk about the prices that are offered and how good they are.

Next is the quality of the goods they can find and at which stores they’re finding these values.

The clincher, though, was when it came to customer service. At several stores, the clerks were compared to glorified cashiers rather than sales people. [] Best places to shop for everything.
