Macy’s Stores across the US are trimming associates to the tune of 1300+, while adding slightly over 600 associates at the same time, netting a loss of over 700 associates. With higher demand to online shopping among consumers has lead to increased window-shopping, price comparison and return’s in-store.
I admit, I do price comparison on widely known items, such as electronics and clothing. If it doesn’t fit, I try to purchase from these large, big-box retailers so that it’s convenient to return in-store. On the flip side, if I were to purchase from a strictly online retailer only, it would hinder my ambition to return if it doesn’t fit/work. The only instance where all rules don’t apply is when the sticker price is large enough, that the product demands a return if it’s not working, not in the condition as described, etc.
