I’ve been in Guangzhou, China for the last few days on business and looking at retail. I was fascinated by the way they sell instant scratch tickets – on the street in this stall. I passed several. You sit, make your purchases, scratch and collect. There’s a community spirit around it. The games are run to raise funds for community charities. I love how the scratchie shoppers were engaged and not making a quick in and out purchase.
Footnote: business being what it is I connect with my newsagencies and other businesses while on the road so I don’t come back to a backlog.
