Thinking about this gigantic model shop (Allied Model Trains) and its currently low level Internet presentation.
It's obviously a hugely successful enterprise, but I can't help wondering if it will further build on its low key net presence to the gradual diminishing of the impressive but expensive bricks and mortar. Or will a few of these absolute elite establishments, maintain their physical presence as rare and sought after centres of excellence while the minnows scratch around, fighting with low, low prices on the net? Can the big boys survive on their almost tourist grabbing attractiveness in this sea of seething competititiveness? Or will they too leap into the maelstrom with their already established and mighty clout?
Food for thought indeeed.
