Marketing wisdom in every aisle! But where did the name really come from?
My dad owned “Marn’s Market” — a small, independent grocery store in Cleveland, Ohio. He carried lots of different products, and he served lots of different customers in the neighborhood. He even delivered! Frank Marn was the ultimate nice guy who treated everyone with respect and kindness, even when he had to “trust them” for the money. (And sometimes not get it.)
This particular son is an ad guy, freelance copywriter, university professor, and comedian. And something of a smart alec who struggles to be as kind as his father. I’d like this blog to be a bit eclectic; to carry posts on advertising, business, interesting stories and facts I come across, and lots of different things. A little like my dad’s store. And in the end, I hope I’ve borrowed more from it than just the name.
