Blockbuster’s deathdealer is Netflix, and Netflix’s and Gamefly’s deathdealer is…Redbox? Nah, digital streaming and downloading will continue to explode, but Redbox will forever have its niche for those who are reluctant to commit to a monthly subscription. But what’s equally appealing as its instant satisfaction is its people-less, automated service. With the advent of internet shopping, eliminating the salesman is very convenient. A customer doesn’t have to deal with the chance of encountering a rude and inconsiderate person, thereby making machines superior and advantageous. Vending machines are quite popular overseas as they’re equipped with renting bicycles, and selling clothing, seafood, gold, and more. Perhaps I should pursue opening a store full of various vending machines…or a vending machine mall!
