@tua88336 Hi Sarah! Something you said during class about brick and mortar stores during the discussion on Sunday really inspired the class post I’ll be working on this week. I think you had suggested it would be great to be able to order something to store from the internet, where then you could decide to buy it or not. It really linked these two things I had heard and read this week. One was an article in the New York Times about how stores are adapting thanks to internet retailers (all these small, urban Targets are an example) and a podcast from Planet Money about why it’s cheaper to ship something from China than to ship something across the street. I’m still working on what my thoughts are, but you might enjoy the NYTimes article.
