The world of the business has changed over the years. Gone are the days when consumers had to go to the store to buy your goods or services. Business owners didn’t have to spend a lot of money to advertise their companies. Nowadays, they can choose a method for managing and marketing their business.
“I love going to the store with multiple children! My toddler always goes right into the cart and never desperately clings to anything within reach like a cat being put into a bathtub only to then chuck all of my groceries across the store like a demented Donkey Kong while my two oldest get into a fist fight because one of them got to put an extra thing on the check-out conveyor belt. Wheeee!”
“Customers are busier than they’ve ever been. They don’t want to go into the store until they have to. So communicating with them the way they want to be communicated with is worth some of the inherent problems with email,” he added.
The positions Wal-Mart is eliminating manage an individual store’s daily cash flow or process claims from manufacturers delivering goods directly to stores, among other tasks. Starting early next year, much of that work will be handled by a central office or new money-counting “cash recycler” machines in stores. Wal-Mart tested the change in about 500 stores earlier this year.
