Tim Manners has an interesting blog up noting that a recent survey of his readers found a third of them never shop at Wal-Mart.
This is interesting because Tim describes his readers as “approximately 3,000 senior-level, client-side executives in Fortune 1000 marketing departments and top management of major advertising, promotion, direct and marketing-services agencies.”
Yes that’s right, marketing executives and the people who create their ad copy don’t shop at the store that probably sells more of the stuff they’re hawking than anyplace.
It’s very odd, as Manners notes. Well he calls it “intriguing”. Odd is my word.
