So we consider ourselves very lucky to have Bruce back in London this year. Bruce was for a time the largest buyer of produce on earth, but he never forgot the basics he learned on the Detroit Market and at store level. Obviously there are many experts in the UK on British retailing, and we will have more than our fair share of them at The London Produce Show and Conference but, sometimes, an outsider to the market can both speak more freely and see things from a different perspective.
Just when you think your opinion about Wal-mart might be changing… Just when you think that maybe, just maybe, Wal-mart was learning to be a better citizen… Wal-mart turns around and does something really … despicable.
This time… Wal-Mart is knocking off the Girl Scouts. Of course, you know the Girl Scouts, those enthusiastic girls organized into local troops, learning about leadership and being resourceful? What could Wal-mart possibly do to harm Girl Scouts?
Wal-mart is selling Fake Girl Scout Cookies.
The Girl Scouts are especially desirable because the cookies are 1 unique and 2 rare. Only the Girl Scouts sell those minty-chocolate-discs-from-heaven known as Thin Mints. The Girl Scouts sell these cookies only for a short time, once each year.
The exclusivity of Girl Scout cookies is what makes the cookies really sell. But now, Wal-mart is shoving itself in front of these little girls, and knocking on your door to sell you their almost-as-good fake Thin Mints and Fake Tagalongs, whenever you want them.
As mentioned in comments, there are other thin mint-chocolate wafer cookies on the market. However, no imitation Tagalongs have been spotted. Personal Disclosure I take these fake cookies, this threat to the Girl Scouts by Wal-mart, quite personally.
So yeah, this one really hits home. Wal-mart can sell all the hunting equipment, cheap plastic gizmos and clothes made in sweatshops that it wants to sell. But why must they encroach upon the market of a non-profit? Why do they have to go after the Girl Scouts?
Authenticity in all directions? Please note that the Girl Scouts had nothing to do with this post. Please keep this in mind as you comment.We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.
