The rise of electronic commerce (e-commerce) and online businesses has led many commentators to contemplate the future of the humble brick-and-mortar business. It is increasingly common for brick-and-mortar businesses to also have an online presence in an attempt to reap the benefits of each particular business model. For example, some brick-and-mortar grocery stores, such as Safeway, allow customers to shop for groceries online and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as a few hours.

Brick-and-mortar locations typically provide a greater opportunity for stores to make a sale. In the case of a luxury retailer, for instance, customers can be seduced by the store's ambiance and image, and attentive and persuasive salespeople can entice customers to make a purchase. Stores can also make use of in-store displays to encourage impulse purchases. On the other hand, online or catalog shoppers may be content to browse without experiencing any sense of urgency to make a purchase.

For brands, the eCommerce route can have many benefits over a brick-and-mortar store. They don’t require expensive storefronts; instead, more cost-effective warehouses are used to hold inventory. With multiple  warehouses, brands can ship products quicker via online orders, and moms can receive products faster than ever before. The convenience of shopping online is arguably the greatest benefit, as consumers can select a product and purchase it within minutes. Moms can shop after her kids are already in bed, or on a smartphone as she’s out doing errands. This has opened up countless opportunities for brands, as advertisers discover new ways to target moms where ever they are, in order to encourage immediate purchases.

 Not only do the weep holes let the water drain out of the wall, but they also allow the wind to get behind the brick and pressurize the one inch airspace between the back of the brick and the sheathing. Believe it or not, this extra air pressure reduces the amount of rain that gets forced through the wall.

The reason why solid masonry is a more accurate description than solid brick or double brick is because the inner wythe may not be brick. Because the inner wythe will never be seen, concrete or cinder block is sometimes substituted for brick.

Brick veneer became the norm when building codes began to require insulation in the exterior walls. One of the best insulators is air. Most good insulation does nothing but trap air; that’s why most insulations are light and fluffy. Brick is not exactly light and fluffy. Therefore it’s not really a very good insulator. A brick veneer house then, is really a wood frame house where the cavity between the studs in the wall can be insulated.

Well that depends on your criteria. Solid masonry walls are certainly stronger, however brick veneer walls are plenty strong and are certainly better insulated. In the big scheme of things, the differences between the two types of construction should not be important enough to affect a purchase decision. In the interests of national unity, you shouldn’t even care whether the house has any brick.

"Amazon would be better off partnering with a brick-and-mortar retailer (Walmart, Target) to help them stock the right books on their shelves. Except none of those companies would show any interest in working together."

This is a genius idea. Amazon is always on the front lines trying out anything and everything that could potentially boost sales and loyalty. I think this one could stick because it eliminates many of the current issues associated with the brick and mortar selling and buying experience.

Amazon continues to experiment with every conceivable method of getting product to customers quickly and conveniently. This bookstore test is no different in that regard. However, it is still significantly different from traditional bookstores in that all covers face out with accompanying reviews. In addition, the selected titles incorporate the data from thousands of Amazon buyers/reviewers, thus limiting the potential for shelf warmers.

Type M (pure Portland) or Type S must be used for anything exposed horizontally to the elements, such as a stone patio, door threshold or wall coping. This is because water pooling and salt will quickly erode the surface (usually within one year) if the mortar is Type N or lower.

“For a lot of people, it’s better to go to the store because you get the immediacy,” he said. He added there were other advantages such as avoiding shipping charges that customers appreciate. For example, a grandparent can order a gift online for a grandchild who lives across country and have the gift picked up at a store near where the child lives. Also, customers don’t have to wait for a delivery person to arrive, and it makes it possible to order really heavy items, such as a swing sets online, and the item waiting for pick-up at the store.

Amazon has led the product delivery evolution, bringing options such as same-day delivery that raise consumer expectations. What could brick-and-mortar businesses do to ignite excitement and anticipation around the moment a customer finally receives his or her item? The wise brick-and-mortar retailers will provide choice: facilitating curbside pickup, sending alerts when an item is ready, notifying upon shipment.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are separated by only a weekend. But for many small businesses, they're worlds apart. During the make-or-break holiday shopping season, the effective use of mobile engagement by brick-and-mortar stores will make all the difference.

Different types of information elicit different levels of sensitivity among Americans, according to a report by the Pew Research Center's Internet Project. Social security numbers are universally considered to be the most sensitive piece of personal information, followed by health information and content of phone conversations. Media tastes and purchasing habits are among the least sensitive categories of data.

For example, if you are offering dance lessons, rent out a space within another facility. One successful dance instructor in Philadelphia rents out space at a fitness center, which is less expensive than renting out a dedicated studio.
