Rolling With The ROM

rwtrThe average number of discs bundled with OEM hardware has exploded from four to more than 10 CDs per computer) — corporate America hasn’t really caught on to the blazing potential of the technique. But all that is about to change, mostly because of the exciting abilities of hybrid disc technology to marry CDs with cyberspace.

“Although the Internet has basically taken over the dialogue about e-marketing, CDs still have a very powerful role to play,” argues Rettie, “especially with their ability to deliver heavy graphics. And with CDs, the marketer finds the customer, rather than the customer having to find the marketer on the Internet.”

The Justice System Talks And People Listen!

One morning last March, Marge Ardly, 35, a pale, thin housewife with the worn-out look of a new mother, started to leave Fred’s department store in the small town of Camden, AR, with a 99-cent tube of lipsticks wrapped in her infant son’s white wool hat. The lipstick activated the store’s alarm system. “You would never have thought she would shoplift,” says a store manager. “She was very presentable. When I asked her to give me her purse to walk through the detector, she gave me everything, she had — even the baby. But she kept holding on to that hat. Finally I asked for that too.”

Ardly appeared before Municipal Judge Edwin Keaton. For that 99-cent tube of lipstick, she had to pay a $250 fine and $50 in court costs and was place on probation for 12 months. But there was an unusual aspect of Keaton’s ruling: He ordered Ardly to go back to Fred’s and spend five consecutive hours walking in front of the store wearing a large yellow sign with bold black letters that read, I got caught shoplifting at Fred’s. The day of her walk, Ardly was clearly angry and embarrassed. “I’m not talking to you,” she told a reporter.

Judge Keaton is well-known in Camden for giving first-time shoplifters this unorthodox punishment. Those who fail to comply are given another chance; but two-time no-shows Read the rest of this entry

ramtdMention retail advertising and most people think of crowded circulars or busy newspaper ads touting one-day sales with a laundry list of marked-down items.

But amid all the formidable spending, there are occasional bursts of real creativity. Witness Old Navy’s TV commercials that mix Carrie Donovan with Morgan Fairchild and the Smothers brothers.
