    Last I checked, if someone sends you something you didn't want, you get to keep it. You don't have to pay for it because you didn't ask for it.

    I use to thumb through the Sears an Roebuck catalog {the wish book] and look at all the stuff I wanted an never afford. Mark pages and of the things for Santa Claws to bring on Christmas. I guess If I don't see it I don't need it.

    We are reaching a tipping point with on-line ordering of merchandise. It's getting easier and easier to order things on-line and get them quickly. Last Sunday afternoon I ordered some toothpaste for my cat (which would be obscenely expensive in a vet's office) and it arrived the following morning! I'm also seeing Amazon deliver groceries in my neighborhood, and I'm seeing "Amazon lockers" sprout up where you can fetch your merchandise from a nearby secure location, sometimes 24x7. Once Amazon perfects this system, with ultra-fast delivery to lockers closer than your stores, you can say farewell to physical stores. The only physical businesses will be restaurants, hair and nail salons, doctors' and dentists' offices, and tattoo parlors. And maybe pillow and mattress stores, because their products are difficult to test on-line. Disclaimer: I own no Amazon stock.
