Retailers Try to Speed Up; What Works, What Adds to Shopper Aggravation...

-half of U.S. consumers say they will shop online this holiday season,

-some stores are copying Apple by using hand-held devices to ring up purchases anywhere in the store.

- some add has added mobile checkout and self-checkout lanes.

-Disney store employees entertain customers with Disney trivia

- some use linebusters when there are more than 3 in line- items are scanned before they reach cashier

-a wait of +10 could lead to abandonment

 

"Any delay in the multiple-line system will stop the line completely, while a delay in a single line might just delay one shopper. Although the single-line method may be faster, Mr. Hammack says customers generally prefer to "jockey for position" in separate lines."

H&M Under Fire for Putting Models' Heads on Perfect CGI Bodies | Adweek

H&M Under Fire for Putting Models' Heads on Perfect CGI Bodies | Adweek | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it
H&M is taking some heat for pasting the heads of real models on computer-generated bodies in swimwear and lingerie photos on its site. To be more precise, the client is using one virtual body, rendered in different skin tones to match the faces.

 

 

(More reasons to feel you just aren't good enough, perfect enough and need to buy H&M clothes. It's not just that you can't live up to the airbrushed model. You'll never measure up against the perfect virtual model body that has the same perfect body and pose again and again and again..Yikes)
