Have customers, will travel for product.

I found this article at The Verge about the individuals who travel across the USA finding discounted items and reselling them on Amazon fastanating. It got me thinking about all the items large merchants have that they are unable to sell but people apparently want. No wonder some of these retailers (eg kmart etc) have so much trouble, they can’t reach the right customer and in this case an entire sub industry has been then created on a tech giant to get the product to the customer. Of course you could argue that other retailers that are profitable (eg Target) are so large that the goods they are clearing out are percentages of percentages so these goods do not matter. Either way, it’s a very interesting business case and situation.
