November 17, 2016

Uniqlo has come to Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay, an opening the giant Japanese retailer announced with a four-panel wrapper around today’s Boston Globe that featured this:

But here’s what the headscratching staff found puzzling: When we picked up today’s Boston Herald, we found something different.

Wait, what? The store is open today for Globe readers but not until tomorrow for their tabloid counterparts?

Is Uniqlo worried about some kind of Jets and Sharks rumpus?

Or do they just not want the riff and faff cluttering up the store its first day.

Huh.


Wynn Everett: No Globe Readers Need Apply

October 16, 2014

Wynn Resorts – which won the casino bake-off with Mohegan Sun last month – looks to be quickly embedding itself in the local economy. The proposed Everett gambling hell – sorry, hall (tip o’ the pixel to Raymond Chandler) – ran this ad in today’s Boston Herald to promote the upcoming Wynn Resorts Vendor & Career Information Sessions.

Average salaries over $50,000? (Is Steve Wynn’s factored in?) $120 million per annum on goods and services? I’d take all of that with a shaker of salt, yeah.

Meanwhile, no such golden opportunities are available crosstown at the Boston Globe. But maybe the Globe set could find gainful employment at the new UniQlo opening tomorrow at the Northshore Mall. Glenn Howerton, Actor/Producer certainly did.
