How is it possible that those who refuse to see continue to keep their jobs?
Is Stuart’s wife perchance the daughter of some Grumbels high muckity-muck?
has it been confirmed that Stuart has a wife? I remember a Valentine’s strip where the Grumbels manual was his valentine…
Marla you might as well quit trying to convince him. To him corporate can do no wrong. Even if you could convince him it won’t make any difference. They make the call and everyone has to jump through the hoop even Stuart.
Marla might as well quit the job and open Clutch Cargo. Grumbel’s will file for Chapter 11 by the end of the year due to this stupid idea anyway, so it’s not like she wouldn’t need to at a later date. It won’t make any difference.
What will prob happen is that the sales will tank and Marla will be blamed for it.
Bingo!! and Stuart will blame Marla by saying she didn’t try hard enough to convince him it was bad yada yada yada or she didn’t instruct floor team proper placements etc
Grumbels will pull through this slump, believe me. They always do or it would mean the end of this comic strip!
i think they need some new ideas from Corporate.. maybe some new employees…
Oh Grumbles, you should take a lesson from a retail giant in the non-comic dimension – JCPenny.
Penny’s philosophy is to hire the genius behind New Coke (seriously) from Apple and let him apply the same approach to clothing as he did to iProducts – no sales and make the store more of a specialized boutique. 4th quarter sales for 2012 were close to a third lower than they were in 2011, despite a rising trend in retail sales.
At least Christmas numbers are so small and insignificant that they don’t have an impact on the entire company’s outlay for the next year.
Except for two things. The yearly “doom and gloom” retail list hasn’t been terribly correct for chain closures. They keep ragging Sears and they keep holding on.
And there if you stop to think about it there are a number of ELP business models that aren’t getting negative press.
Why do people keep hiring this guy?
Ron Johnson at JCP? Oh, let’s see. Maybe because before he was at Apple, he totally revolutionized Target, changing it from an also ran to the place that it is today?
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
False. One of the most often misquoted quotes since its inception.
Who, then? You aren’t going to leave us in the dark intentionally, I hope!
