Many people in the Western world are hopelessly addicted
the shopping experience.
However, as economic situations change many cannot afford
to go out to the mall and blow a couple of thousand. Also,
excess production of goods has real costs in energy,
enviornmental degradation, etc,
Solution: Deptartment stores and other retail shops would
create special accounts for the addicted shopper so that
they could indulge in the shopping experience and actually
check out the merchandise with a special card cleverly
disguised as a credit card. The clerk would then give the
customer a date for when the goods would be delivered to
his/her home and then the store would restock the
merchandise instead of shipping it. The customer would pay
low fee for this service.
This semi virtual shopping experience could also be used to
impress dates, inlaws and other parties
