Questions 163 – 165 refer to the following e-mail message.
From: Julia Chen [j.chen@sanderson.com]
To: Sanderson Staff-Lakewood
Subject: Fitness-at-work program

You’ve probably heard about the new fitness-at-work program initiated by the head office to encourage us to incorporate some exercise into our daily work routine. Sandra Maxwell of personnel has taken on responsibility for the fitness-at-work program at the Lakewood facility. She has nominated me to set up a walking group, to be known as Walk at Work. We are lucky to work in a beautiful area surrounded by parks, so what better place to take a walk?

Walk at Work will meet during the lunch break, beginning next Monday. The aim is to walk together along the footpaths for at least twenty minutes. There will be two walks each day, one at 12:30 P.M., led by me, and the second at 1:00 P.M., led by Jim Dixon.

This program is fully supported by Sanderson Associates, which has arranged for all staff who enroll in Walk at Work to receive a ten percent discount on membership at Lakewood Fitness Center, a state-of-the-art fitness complex with gyms, a swimming pool, and exercise classes.

We think this is a great idea, and we hope you will too, so why not join us? You can e-mail me or just meet us at the main entrance on Monday at 12:30 P.M. or 1:00 P.M.

Happy walking!

Julia Chen

Ms: Eunice Cha

10-EE Central City Building
Bangalore 560097 IndiaDear Ms. Cha:

I very much enjoyed your talk at the International Conference on Public Architecture in Mumbai

I especially appreciated your assessment of the competing demands of function, budget, and public expectations on municipal projects.

Our firm has recently been awarded the contract for the design of a large public swimming facility here in Singapore, and I think that our staff would be most interested in your remarks. It would provide useful discussion points

Would it be possible to obtain a copy of your speech and reproduce twenty copies for our internal use only? We would not distribute any part of it outside the company without first obtaining permission from you, nor would we include any part of it in any of our presentations to external bodies without your permission and without acknowledgement of you as the author.

It might be that you have plans to publish the material in some form in a journal or trade magazine.

If that is the case, I understand that you would not want to release it to us. In that event, would you please inform me when and where it will be published?

Thank you very much for your consideration and for a superb presentation.

Sincerely,

David Wong

NEW TRENDS IN RETAILING

In past years retailers in North America have sounded a consistent theme: Bigger is better. Superstores increased in number and spread rapidly, often at the expense of smaller, family-owned retail stores.

Today these superstores are more than 50 percent larger than in the 1980’s and can be over 30,000 square meters in size.

But small retail stores are now making a comeback. Many of the largest retailers have begun experimenting with small-store formats.

Rather than operating the small stores as separate outlets, though, the companies are managing all the stores in an area together as a closely knit network. By distributing small outlets throughout an area, a retailer can guarantee that one of them will almost always be closer to a given shopper than the superstore at the edge of town. Moreover, small stores are often located within walking distance of public transportation, and, once inside, customers can easily find the products they are looking for.

One advantage of the big stores has been the variety of products they are able to carry because they are so large. One way that has been found to increase variety in small stores is to use electronic kiosks for online shopping. Although the number of products in the stores is small, there are enough actual items to inform customers about the range and quality of products. Customers are then offered computer access to a Web site that provides the full product line.

With regard to costs, small stores that are managed as networks have become as inexpensive to operate as superstores. By combining the orders of these stores, for instance, retailers can take advantage of the full-truckload delivery price rather than incur the higher cost of partial truckload deliveries.
