Several months ago I went to an Apple store to have my iPad repaired, as the screen had broke. I was pleasantly surprised to see Apple employees with “mobile cash registers”. These employees were able to process transactions from anywhere on the store floor. Sounds simple -but many retailers don’t do this. I’m thinking of the long lines I’ve been at in malls and other retail locations wishing that a store clerk would come to me and let me pay for my $29.00 belt without standing in a long line.
