As for part types, they should definately keep stocking all the standard sized (1xX and 2xX) bricks and plates in as many colors as possible. Other important pieces include slopes (in as many sizes as possible), wedges, wings, and tiles. I just looked at what is currently available online, and am generally impressed with selection.
For me, the main reason I don't order from the online PAB is the prices. It's not even a Bricklink issue either (although Bricklink sure doesn't help matters). When I look at the prices, I know that I could go to my local PAB and stuff more of a given part into a cup than I would get by spending the same amount online. They need to figure out how many of a given piece a skilled PABer (i.e. not someone who just dumps them in helter-skelter, but knows what they are doing) can pack into a cup and then divide by the cup price to get their total cost. For me, that is the biggest factor turning me away from the online PAB.

Do you think the current assortment is balanced, just lacking in colors options? Or are there too many junk items available that you'd consider wasted inventory? I'm going to send this back later today so I'd like to get a bit more feedback before then.

By this, I mean that a quantity of 20, 50 or 100 might be the magic number, but the pieces could be in the polybags in that amount in bags that are pre-weighed by machines like the bags for sets are. That way, it costs (in labor) the same amount to put a single piece in the order as it would to put a bag of 20 pieces in the order, and price-per-piece could go down a bit.
