I walked into the bank yesterday only to find a lobby that looked more like a café than a bank. Off in the corner was a full blown popcorn machine. Yes. A popcorn machine. At each window were stacks of candy bars for sale.
And the most odd nugget of food-for-marketing laying around? Tiny Heinz ketchup bottles about the size of a small Tylenol bottle were everywhere. Perfect glass with metal twist top replicas complete with a catchy slogan: “Do you need to Catch Up? Ask us about our Roth IRA today!”
I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.
