What is a meaningful big box store?
Serve the common good, especially in the product or service you offer
Businesses should not exist only to make a profit or satisfy the immediate interests of customers. They should serve the common good, especially in the product or service they offer. Businesses should create fulfilling products, services, and livelihoods. They should serve the well-being of all stakeholders, including customers, employees, community, suppliers, and the environment, as well as stockholders.

These principles are the culmination of a Topic and are suggestions for how to think about a big box store. Explore the Topic to explore and reach your own Vision!

What are Visionary Society Places?

Explore Places to understand the true value of the places you use or interest you

Use Visionary Society Places the way you might use businesses on Yelp or Tripadvisor, but instead of thinking of the quality of the product or service only, look at the big picture. How do they treat their staff and their suppliers? Are they fair and honest with their customers? Do they claim to be ethical while taking advantage of foreign labor, or damaging the environment? Are they open about how the business is run? What makes Visionary Society Places different?

Think of the cafes you use, the cinemas you go to, or any place you use or are interested in. Are your local news stations providing balanced coverage? Are the big malls driving out small businesses? Now, you can hold them accountable for their actions.

Rate and review Places according to how they are improving the community, and track their progress. Become an active participant – not just a passive consumer – in the places you use or follow.


How can I use Visionary Society Places?

► Easily add any Place to your Profile by clicking "Add to My Places"

► Read or add Reviews
Most review sites look at how satisfying a place is. We provide a way to rate and review Places in a deeper way, using the categories What, Why and How.

► Read or add Information
Get the background you need to understand a Place.

► Support or create a Request
Take the next step towards making the Place better!

Offer the Visionary Society class to staff and customers on your premises or at a convenient location (a single meeting lasting 1 - 2 hours).

The product or service should satisfy genuine needs
 
 
Ask yourself what the value of the product or service you provide is. Does it satisfies real or artificial needs? Does it help develop healthy, meaningful lives? Does it appeal to greed, envy, or aggression? Does it prey on desire or fear? Does it produce pride, division, loss of awareness or the ability to think? Or does it improve well-being and quality of life? What kind of human beings and human values does it produce?

Prices should be fair, transparent, and in proportion to costs
 
 
Prices should not be excessive, deceptive, hidden or manipulative. They should be based on actual expenditures and costs and what the patient can pay. Do not take advantage of a captive audience. Charges should not be unexpected. The business model should not depend on charging customers for services they do not ultimately receive or requiring unnecessary updates.

Marketing should address real human needs (not provoke fear)
 
 
Businesses should address the real human needs and genuine interests of customers. They should not manipulate the desires of their customers. They should not appeal to or prey on greed, envy or lust. Advertising and marketing should not be used to produce artificial needs, encourage excessive consumption, or use deceptive or manipulative techniques. Do not lie, mislead, or manipulate.

Support local businesses and the community
 
 
Buy locally whenever possible, purchasing from rural, inner-city, and other locally owned companies and producers, protecting local natural resources. Seek out and develop human-scale processes. Serve the interests of all stakeholders, including those who are effected indirectly and the community as a whole. Take account of the indirect and long-term effects on all those who are affected by your activities.

Engage in dialogue with, and become accountable to, the communities and ecosystems in which your business functions. Interact not only as sellers and buyers, but as neighbors, citizens, and friends.

Pay staff a living wage. Distribute salaries & profits ethically.
 
 
Pay staff (and those of contractors) worldwide a living wage.
Employee wage scale should be within a reasonable proportion. For example, it’s not fair to pay one employee hundreds of times more than another. Senior executives should receive an amount that reflects their actual work and is in line with what is paid to those at the lower end of the pay spectrum.
Profits should be distributed fairly. Part of profits should be used to improve the well-being of customers, not just to enrich owners and shareholders.

Create a Request

Requests are a new way to interact with the businesses and organizations you use, asking them to be more thoughtful and to change for the better. Learn more

► Requests should be fair and reasonable
They should recognize the valid interests of the management and offer a practical choice for them to take action and produce results.

► Requests should be presented in a positive, helpful way
We see ourselves as working together to make a better place - collaboratively, not confrontationally.

► Present it in a way that could apply to all places of that type
For example, 'Supermarkets should sell meat from animals that have not been tortured,' not 'Safeway should stop selling eggs from caged chickens.'

► After a Request is Validated it is available to be used in any Place
Go to the particular Place page and click 'Activate this Request.'
