IDEAS FACTORY | How can we improve supermarkets?

Barry Urquhart is the Managing Director of Marketing Focus and a retail expert –

Barry spoke with Neil Mitchell on how can we improve supermarkets.

Some the ideas were:

  • Get rid of check outs
  • Scan your items straight into the trolley
  • Introduce gyms
  • 24 hour opening
  • Reduce staff
  • Cafe/Restaurants
  • Dry cleaning outlets
  • Bars
  • Australian only isles.
  • Keep lollies away from the checkout
  • Trolley indicators

Listener Sue had a billion dollar idea for a drive-thru supermarket.

‘It will make it easier for people with kids’ – the last thing you want to do is get the kids out of the car for one or two items.
