In speaking with business people throughout my travels in recent months, I am becoming increasingly alarmed at tales of a familiar practice permeating many retail outlets.

That is, the practice of consumers conducting ‘reconnaissance missions’ on items before making a purchase.  Whether it be for a pair of sporting shoes or a bra, it seems consumers aren’t afraid to admit that they are just ‘trying on’ an item so that they can make a purchase on line.
