Retail staff in stores will have to change how they work as more shops begin to roll out digital solutions in their stores, leading directors in retail have said.

As part of a seamless customer experience, retailers are trying to implement omnichannel solutions to tie up their online, mobile and in-store offerings. When digital solutions hit the shop floor, the existing shop assistants will have to be retrained and learn how to get the most out of the new tools, which may be complicated.

Americans Have Been Cursing at Automated Checkouts Since 1937

Who enjoys struggling with microscopic barcodes and unmarked bits of produce in the self-checkout lane? Nobody? Too bad; self-automated modules are here to stay. With a few exceptions, virtually every new grocery store in America is asking consumers to do a bit of work at the end of their trip, reducing face-to-face interaction with employees and, theoretically, overhead costs. Self-checkout feels like a product of the disconnected Internet age, but in fact, the concept is nearly 80 years old. Next time you openly swear at a fritzing scanner, direct the sentiment at Clarence Saunders. Born 1881 to a Virginia tobacco farmer, Saunders spent a lifetime grasping for heights of shopping automation even greater than we know today, then falling and bootstrapping himself back up again and again.

A brief history of Black Friday

The modern use of "Black Friday" didn't come from: sales records going from red ink (losses) to black ink (profits), a stock market scam in 1869 (that did happen, though), employees calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving to have a four-day weekend, the American slave trade. Thankfully, the truth is far more interesting. The term "Black Friday" originates with Philadelphia traffic police in the mid-20th century - for the day following the Thanksgiving holiday every year when the traffic in downtown (Center City) Philadelphia became almost unmanageable . They called it "Black Friday," because of the massive traffic jam that they dealt with all day due to shoppers, and then all night due to the Army-Navy football game. Every 'Black Friday,' no traffic policeman was permitted to take the day off. The division was placed on 12 tours of duty, and even the police band was ordered to Center City. It was not unusual to see a trombone player directing traffic." Source: Black Friday: a brief history of madness and discounts Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.

Family Dollar and the slow, surprising death of the discount store

What has happened to that great American archetype, the penny-pinching bargain shopper? Americans were once known to love a good deal; this is the country that invented ending every price with "$.99" Add to that the US economy has been less than robust for the past six years, marked by a recession leading into a rocky, dissatisfying recovery that includes a weak housing market and 10 million people out of work.
