Sportsgirl & Woollies trialling virtual stores, more from @Retail_Biz, click here to view article,  just as Tesco did in Asia before rolling out. Feedback from some customers using it, is that they didn’t have enough information about the product to make a decision to buy. To me it is obvious that this is important. They are just lazy – customers aren’t lemmings!! Would be great with product you already know though!!

Tesco launched virtual stores in Korea & it seems that Sportsgirl have adapted the concept too: http://bit.ly/A0A0ww.  This is a great example of online and offline working together – for people who think they don’t need a store or physical representation… take note!

If you have a Facebook business page, make sure you have reserved your own USERNAME.
You need to have more than 25 ‘likes’ to do this.

Visit www.facebook.com/username
>> then you can choose your username
>>then you can use it in your facebook address

My Business page is Nancy Georges, The Retail Miss Fix-it & my URL is http://www.facebook.com/NancyGeorgesRetailMissFixIt  rather than the super long one facebook gives you.

“More Recruiters Like Facebook – gaining on Linkedin http://t.co/uYvNnuj via @WSJ”

Interesting read considering some of the chatter is that people are bored on Facebook…. although I just advise to get more interesting friends!!
