retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The US Postal Service is very much in the news these days … to the point when MNB ran a clip yesterday from a 1997 episode of "Seinfeld" that satirized the Post Office, some folks thought it was too soon.  (More on that below in "Your Views.")

But … it all has given KC an idea about how bricks-and-mortar stores actually can use the moment (depending on local laws, of course) to prove a new level of relevance to their shoppers.

Note:  This suggestions is a) not political, and b) has been vetted with several retail executives to see if it makes sense.
