Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

The days of consumers stocking up on large quantities of food regularly and buying clothes seasons in advance seem to be long gone, so says The Wall Street Journal.

Retailers are altering their manufacturing and merchandising strategies in response, The Wall Street Journal reports today.

“Apparel makers and retailers…are changing their production and selling schedules for shoppers who increasingly want to buy their clothes in season,” the paper reports.

At the same time, club stores like Costco and BJ’s have been unveiling smaller unit sizes to increase frequency of consumer visits. “The concept that club stores are only for stock-up visit—I don’t think that’s true anymore,” a BJ’s exec told the paper.

If this consumer trend continues, they can’t be.
