I hate wasting paper, and I hate when I’m shopping and I hate work.
Let me see if I can explain. In my time in retail, I often work in a situation in which “a man,” usually the vendor or corporation, sending a giant box store fliers stuffed in their promotion. Often, eventually became more brochures for every one seller than is necessary and sufficient for the products and services we need. And when I worked at a big box department store, the only time I’ve ever seen “weekly sales role: that when we want to go every week to ensure that the products advertised in stock.
For example, I have been working with mobile phone sales over the last five years. Every so often, one of our vendors, let’s call them “My Phone Wireless” will send a giant box “update” very similar leaflets leaflets they sent a few months ago, except for one or two small details (price in plans single, distinct images, change the copyright year). We do not have in-store recycling for a variety of paper products, so the old fighters in vain. What’s worse is that sometimes I Wireless Phone will send * only * family * just * a plan or plans of individual leaflets, or send information about international calls / text rates. In my hometown, I am often asked about the international prices in South America, although I sometimes get questions about Canada. When all I had a lot of brochures about domestic level family, I have difficulty in helping people who want to use the single-line International rates.
Another issues through weekly sales flyer. Sometimes, we run out early in the week. Another time, we had more than a flyer we know what to do with. There are also times when a flyer showed that the product was not available at my particular store or not done at all in my store. I think it would be good to print advertising sales at stores that are more specific advertisement.
If our area has a print-on-demand kiosks, with updates sent by our vendors, we can print the flyer we need, just when we need them. We want to save the environment by not printing thousands of “My Wireless Telephone” flyers to be obsolete in a week later. Vendors we want to save on shipping costs, allowing us to have a low cost in-store, which can be delivered to our customers could use it for the sales of reprints if we run out mid-week, or pre-printed as many sales fliers before the beginning of the week. This will save man-hours spent leaflets calling stored in bins. Save Money! And, if the kiosk is available to customers, they can print what they need. As a customer, I would like to see more paper.
Now wasteful, it can be said that the kiosks are expensive. However, the cost of saving the environment, labor, and delivery will make up for the cost.
