And I smell a conspiracy, although I didn't really want to say this.
The major supermart chains here [Woolworths & Coles] have already started reducung the number of products "ranged" in the interests of cost-cutting
& efficiency. Mind you, companies have to pay many 1000's of $$ to have their products "placed" on the shelves of these chains. And small shops are
closing at a great rate of knots - they can't compete with the big guys of retail.
So my choices are already being limited more & more. This "Jetson-style" shopping's aimed at the corporations, not at the customer. But it's gonna
happen nevertheless. Damn.
