I think I am done with the glitter caravan pattern. Would anyone like to try it out for me? Feedback please!

So true. If brick and mortar stores can't match online pricing, they've got to win with customer relationships and convenience.
Originally shared by ****
We walked into a children's home furnishing chain store yesterday and found a great, great kids book. It was priced $3.00 above the cover price, which was covered by a in-house UPC label. So we went to a large book chain store to find it. Then we found some other books. Soon we had a stack of books, which would have come to a total of $90. I used the Amazon app to scan them, and I saved $40 by doing so. I put the books back and they get here tomorrow, free shipping, for $40 less than what I would have paid at the big book seller.

Then we drove over to the big chain to buy toys for our daughter. She had this awesome pink castle on her holiday wish list. We don't really buy toys for her much, and she isn't so interested in toys in general...she likes to draw and make sutff from paper and clay.
But she really wanted this pink castle thing, so we went for it.

They were sold out.

Actually their computer said they had two in stock,
but the two were nowhere to be found.
( If they were Star Wars figures...that's easy...sneak in the back and go get em. )

So standing there I opened the Amazon app and bought the castle for $20 less than the store's advertised sale price.
Then I noticed Amazon was selling the princesses for almost half of what the large retailer had them for. So lots of boxes are on the way.

Now factor in gas money and the pain of driving around only to find items sold out.

Man, you can't be sold out if you're a brick retailer.
And if you are?
Get on the phone and call up the other locations for your customers like lighting.
And if the computer says you have two? Oh man, race to the back and make sure those two aren't just sitting there,
because out comes the phone with the Amazon app.
Or is that just a feeble last effort to hold onto VHS tapes the day DVDs hit?
( or DVDs the day iTunes hit )

And I am not even talking about the amazing small stores with the charm and incredible customer service here. I'm talking about the big boys.

Not only confusing for students, but also confusing to try and communicate the difference to coworkers and clients.
