Marc Bannerman showed a high level of stupidity, arrogance even, by thinking that he could get away with this sort of behaviour with cameras catching his every move 24/7, and eight million people watching, but apart from that this was probably a microcosm of the kind of thing that happens in front of bemused work colleagues in conferences and hotels all across the country.
I predict that Marc will go back to Sarah, and Cerys will eventually be the one who feels a right fool, humiliated even.
On the marketing front Marc
's runs a weekly ad circular, and the chain sponsors the "Healthy Moments Show" five times a week on two radio stations in northeast Ohio.
Among the initiatives Marc's is currently utilizing to further its green efforts are a new tractor fleet, which will improve the company's fuel economy by 15%; a 30% improvement in lift truck efficiency through use of a brake system to generate power; switching the company's warehouse lights from sodium to fluorescent, which are 48% more efficient and last 20% longer; and the employment of high-efficiency battery chargers, which use less electricity and lengthen battery life.
Marc's is saving trees by using electronic means instead of paper for faxes and picking products, and has sold "hundreds of thousands" of reusable shopping bags under cost, to reduce the use of plastic bags.
The MARC Systems' product philosophy is to provide customer-configurable, standard version-controlled products focused on the global supply chain execution marketplace.
MARC Systems has been implemented in more than 200 suites worldwide in a broad variety of industries including consumer packaged goods.
Marc's has teamed up with Brook Park, Ohio-based Carpet Warehouse Inc.
The latest addition to Marc's merchandise mix is another example of the retailer's ability to retain vibrancy in a format that has faded from the scene in most parts of the country.
