Use It. Share It. Grow It
In days gone by, the general store was pretty much the axis of life. Everything one could need in products or services could be found in one place requiring less travel and time which was a luxury in those days. We have been through the segmentation phase in recent times but it would appear that this old concept is coming back in the form of the C-Store.
One missing service across the spectrum and has been a recent topic of discussion is the Post Office. From its inception, the General Store was the hub of that operation and I can see a return to that concept as rising cost are cutting the heart out of that service. Just imagine, stop at the c-store and fill up your car, get yourself dinner, do your banking, pick up some food staples, get a lotto ticket and mail your package in one stop, all at night. Old was so great, it could be new again.
