Infinite Target Registers

This is why I love shopping at Target... lots of registers, with lots of people working those registers... and they move fairly quickly! I get in, get my stuff, and checkout quickly.


This is the primary core of business. Allow the customer to get what they want (product or service) and easily hand over their money. When you make it hard for people to give you money, they grow frustrated. Which is also why I hate shopping at WalMart. WalMart also has a bunch of registers yet they dont' have that many people working them... and they move slowly. I've never been to Walmart where I've not experienced a long line and wait. They should make it easy for me to give them my money, yet it is more profitable for them to hire fewer employees and thus, make me wait.


So.... what does this mean? It means I'm frustrated with WalMart, and I don't go there anymore. I shop at Target because they don't make me frustrated. To paraphrase, "No one goes to WalMart anymore - it's too crowded."
