Results for - And the receipts keep 'rollin, rollin, rollin'

1,421 voters participated in this survey
*AdWeek* American retailers crank out 1.4 billion pounds of paper receipts each year, so 8 stores were visited where 1 package of trident gum was purchased. Then the lengths of the receipts were measured. You can see by the photo that Kmart issued a receipt 2 feet long (for the longest) and CVS 5 inches for the shortest. So, basically (not all stores responded) what was learned is that the receipt is the store's last chance to engage with the customer; offering coupons, a chance to answer survey questions, etc. Now, please check off what is true for you:
