Very valid points and well written.
From my personal point of view, as well as drawing from my businesses background knowledge, tienes toda la razon.

Small "Mom & Pop" shops, really do need to put on their "thinking caps" and find ways to "keep up with the big boys", if they want to succeed. As you suggested, there ARE ways to do just that.

Opening up a "fonda" with a few plastic tables, and some plastic "Corona" chairs, is NOT too innovative.
Opening up or running a "Miscelánea" with a few racks of Sabritas, and other junk food, and a refri or two with the usual soft drinks, is NOT very innovative.
Opening up a clothing shop with the same old shirts, shorts, bathing suits & hats that everybody and their brother has sold here for the past 30 or 40 years is NOT a formula for success.

Being "traditional" and "Old School" may be cool, e.g. from the perspective of some of us "aging" folks, nevertheless it could end up being a deterrent to making one's business a successful enterprise.

Whatever type of business it is, needs to find a way to set themselves apart and distinguish themselves, using techniques and opportunities such as you (hromero) suggested.

One could probably spend the next four years looking through loads of publications on how to operate a business and be successful at it. There is no shortage of information on that topic.
