INEZ THREET, CLERK, WALTON's FIVE AND DIME, BENTONVILLE: Helen walton: For a while there I got to thinking that maybe I was just a genius at picking these items, they all did sowell. But I finally realized that because I was the chairman, and because they knew I'd be coming intotheir stores sooner or later, our associates would get at it on those items I chose and move those thingsright on out. I learned I had to be careful the time we promoted the Moon Pies. These gooeymarshmallow snacks, which are real popular in the South, were another one of my great items. I got onto them in Tennessee, where I ran into a department head, a woman who had been selling Moon Pies inan unbelievable way just by putting them out where folks would notice them. Well, I knew they weren'tbeing pushed across Wal-Mart because I hardly ever saw them around in the stores. So I took her idea,came back, got with the buyer, called the company, and said, "Hey, what if I make the Moon Pie myitem, ship it to all our stores, and sell it five for $1.00 instead of 23 cents apiece" They went for it andcame down in their price to 12 cents apiece. We charged 20 cents and sold 500,000 Moon Pies, or$100,000 worth, in one week. Company-wide, it was a real winner. The problem was everybody gotcarried away with my item and we shipped them to Wisconsin. Those people up there never heard ofMoon Pies before, and they weren't too interested in learning about them. It was the kind of mistake wehad to watch out for once we got so big. 一本道在线高清无视码v视频日本，-一本道在线高清无视码v视频日本，-一本道免费v码在线，-日本一道本香蕉视频， STORES SALES1970 32 $ 31 million1972 51 $ 78 million' He had chosen the most effective appeal; but Maggie鈥檚 will was fixed unswervingly on the coming wrench.
