Hi Khalid,

In some ways what you’re describing sounds similar to the UK chain of stores Argos. Are you familiar with them? They’re all over the UK, but I’ve never seen anything like them here.

You can order online, but they also have shopfronts with minimal merchandise on display. If they don’t want to shop online, people choose what they want from a catalogue or the web, go to a counter and order it, and then stand around waiting for their purchase to be fetched from somewhere out the back of the store.

If you’re considering something like that, you might be interested to check out their business model.

cheers,
Jayne
