With that idea at the root of everything, we've developed a unique ability to customize what we do tomeet the needs of our stores. Until recently, for example, we bragged that we were making deliveriesevery day to 97 percent of our stores. Then we discovered that wasn't necessarily the best thing for all ofour stores, particularly the smaller ones. So now we've gone into a customized delivery program in whichstores can pick one of four different delivery plans. Every six months, each store decides which plan itprefers. And we also have a plan called accelerated delivery, designed for stores located within a certaindistance of a distribution center. A store in that plan can order merchandise on Monday night and get iton Tuesday night. Nobody else in the business can deliver like that on any kind of widespread basis. DAVID GLASS: "I'm sure that our whole focus on thinking small all relates to Sam running that store in Newport, wherehe was the entrepreneur, and he was out there involved as a leader of the community. He sees thatentrepreneurial element as being so important and something he never wants us to lose. He saw the bigchange in Ben Franklin and all those other companies that lost it because they got too big and distracted,and he's just determined it won't happen here."For us, thinking small is a way of life, almost an obsession. And I suspect thinking small is an approachthat almost any business could profit from. The bigger you are, the more urgently you probably need it. 超级碰97直线国产_亚洲综合在线另类色区_99re8在线是免费视频_夜夜噜2017最新老司机 鈥擱ICHARD BRAUTIGAN, Trout Fishing in America鈥淪UCH A SENSE of joy!鈥?marveled Coach Vigil, who鈥檇 never seen anything like it, either. 鈥淚tquite remarkable.鈥?Glee and determination are usually antagonistic emotions, yet theTara(was) humara were brimming with both at once, as if running to the death made them feel morealive. 鈥淗EY!鈥?Jenn and Billy shouted together. 鈥淗EY!
