WALMART AND PALIN: A MATCH MADE IN RETAIL…

Walmart and Sarah Palin missed what could have been a major political coup. The Republican National Committee spent more than $150,000 on clothing and quaffing Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, but not one dollar was spent at Walmart.

From The New York Times:

The full shopping list for Ms. Palin and her family, according to records of the Federal Election Commission, looks like this:

• $75,062.63 spent at Neiman Marcus on Sept. 10.

• $41,850.72 to Saks Fifth Avenue in New York on Sept. 10.

• $7,575.02 to Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis on Sept. 10.

• $5,102.71 to Bloomingdale’s in New York on Sept. 10.

• $789.72 to Barney’s New York on Sept. 10.

• Charges of $4,396.94 and $512.92 at Macy’s in Minneapolis on Sept. 10.

• $4,537.85 to Macy’s in Minneapolis on Sept. 22.

• $349.50 to Lord & Taylor in New York on Sept. 25.

• $4,902.08 to Atelier New York, a men’s clothing boutique, on Sept. 10.

• Two separate charges of $98 to Pacifier, a high-end baby store in Minneapolis, on Sept. 10 and Sept. 25.

• $98.50 to Steinlauf & Stoller, a sewing supply store, in New York on Sept. 25.

• $133 to the Gap in Minneapolis on Sept. 25.

Not a penny spent at Walmart. What were they thinking?

At least some of Trig’s diapers came from Walmart.

  1. I posted about Palin and Wall-Mart today. A missed marketing opportunity, indeed.

    Shalom Christine,

    First, thank you for stopping in, for reading and, most importantly, for taking the time to share your post with us. Building a community is all about our conversations, kind of like a quilt, right?

    I’m glad I’m not the one who had this thought.

    B’shalom,

    Jeff
