SMALL-MART Printer Friendly Version
A reatailer that could combine the advantages of internet shopping (or even large discount stores), namely selection and prices, with the low cost of many local distribution points would meet a lot of shopper's needs, and save time and transportation costs. Using computer-based warehouse information systems, the company could take orders for goods through a website, then ship to local outlets for customer pick-up. An extra charge for delivery service could even be a part of the scheme. These distribution points could be as simple as the corner gas station with a franchise with a drive-through pick-up window.
Reward: Entry to heaven.

Electronic Receipts for Traditional Purchases Printer Friendly Version
Purchases made in person in stores have a disadvantage for customers in that there is no electronic record of the purchase available for the customer, only a paper receipt. Since receipts are often needed for returns, proof-of-purchase, rebates, etc., there is motivation to mimic internet sales with electronic receipts. If the customer was willing to give their email address to the store clerk, these could be sent by email (along with advertising). If the customer wanted to remain anonymous, but still wanted a receipt, there could be a swip-able card that could record the purchase information (and advertisements).
Reward: Recognition for development of the idea.

United States - Complainers Printer Friendly Version
The Idea is simple: Hire people who constantly complain just about anything! Hire them out to other companies looking for ways to make their business better. No complaint too small. The possibilities are endless, especially in a consumer driven market.
"We complain to Make your Customers Happier!" That's the Slogan.
The problem with employees is that they don't complain to management in person. Yet, they/we grovel all day about how bad things are. If management would listen to complaints, things just might get better. My first post - just testing the waters.
First online complaint about this site: eg: the logo at the top of this site is too big - if it has to be that big, put some more images into it! Make it appealing. Oh, it's nice and all: But put some gears into it, make it pop more!
Reward: Making a better world by complaining about it - for the sake of being picky!
