Retail Dying

Is it just me or is the retail experience in large stores getting worse and worse? I was in Target & Best Buy today and just found myself annoyed by the entire process – the staff seemed bored and annoyed, they seemed poorly stocked compared to the variety I am used to online, the technology seemed old and worn, with the register clerk entering in upc codes by hand at Best Buy. I know that these kinds of stores were never great, and I go in them so rarely now that perhaps I am simply unused to it all, but it does feel like they are dying off in some slow, sad, annoying way.
