How Advertising Works in Chippenham 5

  1. Allow your store's Head Office to dream up a new marketing campaign
  2. Display the promotional material you've been given at the roundabout where your store is located
  3. Wait for a blogger with a camera to notice it and almost crash their car because they groaned so loudly
  4. Et voila!

This is the fifth item of an occasional series - some more are in the pipeline - the previous one can be found here.


  1. Personally I think it is distracting like birthday signs, and should be banned.

  2. I personally like bad puns/plays on words... Good effort! :)

  3. Hermes - usually I can manage to ignore them, but the dreadful pun got to me in this case!

    Monica - I like puns too - just as well as NAH's a punmeister ;)

    Anna - :D

  4. Ha ha I was in there yesterday and they have also had an amazing idea of using green buckets as baskets and you can buy them when you leave, hmmmm wonder where they got that idea from lol

  5. Dave - sounds like another Head Office marketing idea to me ;)

  6. Yeah they must have a suggestion box or something in the staff room!

  7. Dave - I wonder how many people 'accidentally' buy them?

  8. I do know that I have a shed full of Orange ones but do you think I can find a handle!!

  9. Oooh I think I know where you got those from Dave - sounds like they're not too robust!
