Instant promo success, but potential long-term loss...?

Instant promo success, but potential long-term loss...?[Jason (Frich) Frichol] I've bought all my instant coffee for a year. I'm not a bargain hunter, a fickle switcher nor pantry-filler.

It's time to wine

It's time to wine[Jason (Frich) Frichol] One of my greatest frustrations is shopping for wine. I, like most winers, have my favourites but I'm also a variety seeker. And in a self-service environment, I can go to a number of stores/channels in close proximity that stock my favourites. But as a variety-seeking wine shopper, no one store is speaking to me.
