    Although ‘customer is always right’, it is always worth trying to let them be right even more often. Below you will find a bunch of examples how seemingly simple steps can bring about an astonishing effect.

    Can a trip to the supermarket be even more pleasant? Of course it can!

    In most supermarkets and shopping malls dogs have to be left outside. However, this Italian grocery lets the pets in. There is a designated space where dogs can wait. Of course as long as their owners will fasten their leash.

    The only thing we usually do while selecting the toilet paper is to check the number of layers and, of course, the price. However, it is normally impossible to find out whether the material will be irritating for some of the most sensitive parts of our body. That is why a Dutch department store offers a special room where this feature can be put to the test.

    #3 Female hygiene products

    I guess you know how it feels when you have got a cup of hot coffee in your right hand, a suitcase in the left and there’s a door in front of you to open. This is a common situation, especially at railway station cafes. That is why one of them came up with a tiny shelf, still big enough to put a cup on it, so that you could easily open the door. Just don’t forget your coffee!
