Empty Aisle Indicator

Or a counter showing how many people are in the aisle.

This usually happens when I find myself at the back of the store, my cart is full, and I'm ready to checkout. For some reason whichever aisle I pick to head towards the checkout lanes tends to be filled with slow-moving shoppers who've parked their carts side-by side forcing me to wait or pick another aisle. It shouldn't be too hard to create an overhead counter showing how many people/carts are in each aisle. It would even make everyone's shopping faster since they could arrange their routes according to the emptiest aisles. The advantage to the stores would come in a smoother and faster flow, making the shopping experience a little more pleasant (and keep frustrated people from leaving their cart where it is and just walking out).

Add additional vending machines outside grocery stores, dept. stores, etc. with the essentials/most popular items so people can still purchase them after the store's closed.

An item finder search engine on a computer at stores when you walk in so you can quickly find out which aisle the item you're looking for is in.
