    COSTCO is one of the go-to places when it comes to stocking up on products but shoppers can end up spending more than they wanted to. Some items are sold intentionally at a loss, while employees admitted that products are moved deliberately to confuse customers. 1Costco customers can end up spending more than they wanted to when stocking up at the wholesaler (stock image)Credit: Alamy Costco employee Paige Saunders is among workers that have spilled the beans on some of the strategies used by the retailer. MOVING ITEMS AROUND STORE Saunders claimed that the employees themselves don't choose to move items around the store, but that the directive comes from corporate. In one of her clips, she said: “When you're in the search of something specific, they move them so you spend time looking for it and on the way, pick up other things. read more on costcoRETAILER WARS Four Costco rivals that offer better perks than popular warehouse chainWHOLESALE BENEFITS I'm a savings expert - 4 other stores with better perks than Costco "New products are also placed at...
    In this article TSLAA solar panel is displayed on a wall near signage at the entrance of the new Tesla Inc. showroom in New York.Mark Kauzlarich | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesWhile Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said he would prefer to stay out of politics, and that he opposes all subsidies, his electric car and solar business is asking employees to protest a policy proposal in California that would cut solar incentives in the state, according to company correspondence obtained by CNBC. There are at least 1.3 million residential solar customers in the state today. Among other things, the policy proposal would reduce payments made to solar customers in California for excess power that their systems generate and send back to the grid. It would also add monthly grid-connection charges for solar customers, effectively making rooftop solar more expensive for California residents. If implemented, the proposed policy changes could make it harder for Tesla, and its competitors, to sell customers on a residential solar installation in the state or generate profits from systems it leases. Proponents say that the...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s the question on most everyone’s mind:  When and where can I get the COVID-19 vaccine? Much of the attention has been focused on giants like Walgreens and mass vaccination sites, but the little guys are able to help out, perhaps as soon as next week. CBS 2 Morning Insider Lauren Victory takes us to a century-old suburban pharmacy that hopes to soon help us all get back to the good old days. Oswald’s Pharmacy ushered in the new year with a grand plan. After months as a COVID-19 testing site, the Naperville store is prepping for the next phase: soon-to-be vaccine distribution area. Staff is clearing out the space where customers will wait after getting the shot. “It could be a week from today, we just learned,” sixth generation owner Alex Anderson said. He didn’t expect the vaccine until the spring, but President Joe Biden recently announced expanded access at independent pharmacies starting Feb. 11. It’s a quick heavy lift, but rolling with the punches is part of the history at Oswald’s Pharmacy. Alex’s father, Bill, is the...

Being in business and handling all that comes with it to ensure your product’s services are doing what you promise to your customers, you will sometimes encounter unsatisfied customers. How do you currently handle them? How have you set up training or modified it now with the remote ways business is being handled during the pandemic and your adjustments for moving forward?

They may have identified a gap in your process or service that they are looking to provide insight to by voicing their disappointment. When they choose to be vocal about it is a great way to show them the true pedigree of your company and how you handle all circumstances with your customers. An upset customer who has taken the time to speak, call or email you about a problem is...
    Maybe you don't like politics with your beer. Or maybe you think small businesses should stay above the ideological fray so that they don't alienate one group of potential customers while catering to another. It's an understandable take, but one that really isn't possible anymore in a country that is now truly divided. Even the simplest choices — such as what organization to donate money to or whether or not to support the Black Lives Matter movement or enforce mask rules — can have repercussions. So, with that "damned if you do, damned if you don't" environment as the background, a few breweries are putting politics on tap. Others are simply encouraging people to vote, including Arvada's Luki Brewery, which is offering people the chance to vote on the style characteristics for its yet-to-be-brewed Democracy IPA, which will be released on November 3 — election day. (Hurry, though, because voting on the beer ends tomorrow, October 14). "We are...days away from the very last chance to raise your hand and add your voice to the collective opinion of where we as...
    New York (CNN Business)The banking industry's $11 billion overdraft-fee gravy train could get derailed if Joe Biden wins the White House.Wall Street analysts are warning that Biden-appointed regulators could crack down on overdraft fees, which critics say unfairly punish society's most vulnerable. "Overdraft fees are one of the biggest risks to the banking industry under a Biden presidency," said Nathan Dean, senior analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. Even if the US Senate remains under GOP control, a Biden administration may take aim at overdraft fees through new rules from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. "There will be real pressure from progressives to get tough on banks. This is the easiest way to do that," said Dean. Read MoreCowen Washington Research Group warned clients last week that a Biden win will likely result in restrictions on how often banks can charge overdraft fees and other limitations. "If Donald Trump wins, we see no risk to overdraft fees," Jaret Seiberg, policy analyst at Cowen, wrote in the note to clients. Biden has not explicitly promised to take action on overdraft fees. And the...
    During his October 6 press conference about COVID-19, Governor Jared Polis suggested that the best way to make sure rising hospitalization numbers don't get out of control is to redouble safety protocols as we head into colder weather and the holiday season. But that's not happening, judging from visits to numerous Denver area stores over recent weeks: Many of the procedures put in place months ago to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus have fallen by the wayside. For instance, an overwhelming majority of retail outlets appear to have stopped tracking the number of people in the store at a given time. Likewise, sanitizing shopping carts, cash registers, conveyor belts, credit-card touch pads and the like is happening with much less frequency. And mask use among employees, while infinitely better than it was during the early days of the pandemic, has literally started to slip.Related Stories Polis Rips Trump as Terrible COVID-19 Example Jared Polis's Mom on Trump Racism and New Hate Groups Film Previewing Colorado's New COVID-19 Notification Phone App We've sighted the slippage in such major retailers...
    COVID-19 isn’t the first hardship to affect many members of the Osage Cafe community, operations manager Lori Laurita says. Still, this year has proven to be a roller coaster that’s underscored the importance of listening to customers and adapting to their needs. Osage Café, supported by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA), serves the La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood with fresh meals while also operating a culinary arts training and employment program for underserved Denver youth. The nonprofit restaurant's holistic approach to both food and education has inspired staff to think creatively about how best to provide its services during stay-at-home and safer-at-home measures. Laurita says that mental health check-ins with trainees and people in the neighborhood have been just as important as providing food and employment opportunities. The idea for the cafe began over a decade ago at a food bank in the Platte Valley where DHA started the Youth Culinary Academy to give young adults hands-on experience in a commissary kitchen. Organizers quickly “saw the need and demand to make it bigger and provide for more students,” explains Laurita.Related Stories...
    Colfax Avenue, the country's longest main street that was also the legendary Route 40, has seen a lot of businesses come and go during its lengthy history, and another one just hit a major roadblock: Route 40, the restaurant that replaced the Goods at 2550 East Colfax Avenue, has shut its doors...for now. "It just didn’t make sense to stay open daily with the cold weather coming," says Charlie Woolley, the developer who turned the old Bonfils Theatre into the Lowenstein Complex, which also holds Twist & Shout and a Tattered Cover. "The restaurant will do events and pop-ups to stay in front of their customers." Route 40 just opened at the end of June; it was a revisioning of the Goods, which Mark Whistler had run since 2016. (Before that, the U Baron Group operated The Good Son there; Paul Reilly's Encore was the first restaurant in the space, which had been the theater's lobby.) Late last year, Whistler was looking for a way to change the focus of his restaurant; Woolley suggested that he talk to Jonny Barber,...
    It seemed a little too good to be true the other night when Amazon successfully processed a bunch of PlayStation 5 preorders after other retailers dropped the ball spectacularly. And, well, maybe it was. Today, the company has sent out an email to many who preordered a PS5 — both the regular and Digital Edition consoles — advising that shipments might not arrive in time for the November 12th release date. “We’re contacting you about your order of PlayStation 5 to let you know in advance that you may not receive this item on the day it is released due to high demand,” the email reads. “We’ll make every effort to get the item to you as soon as possible once released.” This is probably a situation where not even Amazon yet knows exactly how many PlayStation 5 units it will be receiving, so the retailer is trying to play it safe and warn people that there’s no guarantee of launch-day delivery. Those customers will now be left with a choice to make: you can...
    The phrases “Google” and “privacy” don’t specifically go hand in hand. It is not that I never have confidence in Google’s concepts or its means to supply. It is the actuality that these bulletins typically seem far better than they are. The worst issue about them is that Google genuinely isn’t completely ready to embrace the point that it collects user data and that it sells more high priced adverts the a lot more knowledge it has. Google would seem fearful to affirm these info, and Sundar Pichai’s privateness announcement is the hottest instance of that. It’s a lengthy web site put up that goes out of its way to prevent any mention of adverts, which is how Google tends to make income.
