The wide world of retailing news

Did you hear that WalMart is going upscale? No. Really. WalMart is going upscale! And all this is, evidently, only the latest phase in a large, orchestrated plan for WalMart to go upscale.

Hello fellow lady ad-person :)
I like your blog, full of useless/ful info :)

Thanks. I try to be helpless/ful.

Puce Attack is hilarious. And that's not empty, insincere ad-speak!

I went shopping at the new Plano "upscale" Wal-mart the other day. Hilarious. It's a Wal-mart full of tan and skinny people (with some, ahem, obvious exceptions), but the aisles are WIDER. Like Alanis Morrisette so poignantly puts it: isn't it ironic?

Now that's odd. A Plano-living friend of mine went to that WalMart and made the exact same observation: wider aisles. And yes, it is ironic. Or an optical illusion.

Also, she was delighted by the beer and wine selection. She IS my friend for a reason.
