These Problem Solving Shopping Baskets Are Brilliant. Almost

Like us on FB:

Shopping can be fun and enjoyable, but there are times when things can get awkward too. Take for example when a salesperson tags along and keeps asking if you need help. We’ve all been there. You’re minding your business and a salesperson asks you if you need help, to which you politely decline. Ok, no problem. Not 2 minutes later, they or another salesperson asks you again if you need help… Now it’s annoying, and it’s making you want to leave.

Then there are the times when you legit need assistance and no sales person wants to even acknowledge you, much less give you the time of day. Well, a chain of Korean beauty stores has come up with a way to solve such problems with shopping baskets.

Store employees can often be overbearing.

Other times they fail to help customers at all.

Innisfree, a Korean beauty store with branches also located in other Asian countries, came up with these genius shopping baskets.

Just grab the green basket if you can do the shopping yourself or the orange one if you need assistance.

This strategy helped the store solve some of their common problems.

Of course, it’s not exactly a perfect solution.

In fact, it could cause some conflict.

It’s certainly a step in the right direction. At least they’re trying!
