Exact Change Please….

Stephanie

We recently received this comment on Rhodia availability:

“Your company needs vending machines that can dispense your products! Place them outside of art supply stores and near art schools, with a few placed in areas (like mine) that lack adequate art supply retail outlets.

Here in Northwest Indiana, fishing is popular. Many bait shops and popular fishing areas have vending machines that dispense a variety of live bait: mealworms, bee moths, other writhing lumps of living goop…  compared to a vending machine that spits out live bugs, I think designing a machine that dispenses Rhodia products would be easy as pie!”

Considering the popularity of Rhodia in Japan, a country  known for their vending machine culture, no such Rhodia machines currently exist there or anywhere else- and I’m totally with our reader on the idea being a good one. I don’t live in a rural town yet it’s still fairly difficult to find Rhodia in my area.

Where do you think would be a good place to put a Rhodia vending machine? Starbucks?

  1. This is fabulous idea. I’m actually surprised no one has done it yet (y’all get on it before Moleskine beats you to it). I think the best places would be locations where notebooks are not normally found, like coffee shops, airports, truck stops. I would throw in some Clairefontaine products as well.

  3. It’s a great idea!

    I second the need in all most public places especially libraries and public transport hubs.

    Malls would be great too, it would be the one quality item at most malls. :)
