Wait until the Cows come home.

Recommended Posts

I guess somebody has been moving a cow to different street corners around Downtown. Anyone have a picture or two? I'd really like to see this. The cow is reported to have "We're coming home Nov. 9" written on it. I'm thinking this is a clever introduction to a grand opening for an ice creme shop or some kind of retail outfit downtown. Anyone know more about this?

They could have been a little more helpful and painted it purple... Can anyone explain to me why Meijer is operating a Coffee Shop/Purple Cow on Michigan St. just north of the convention center. Actually, is there even a Purple Cow operating at this location?

Where on Michigan? Did you see a Purple Cow sign in a storefront?

Seyferth, Spaulding and Tennison were listed in the GRPress as the creative cow creators. They also represent Meijer from time-to-time.

Hmmmm....

A multilevel urban Meijer flag shiip store with a 30-40 story HQ tower built above all designed by the Rockwell Group would be a crown jewel to Meijer Inc. But I think a corporate HQ transplant is about 5 to 10 years away for Meijer. Also the Fred Meijer Building in Walker has alot of space behind it to expand into.

Perhaps, they might have plans for making a move DT? Not HQ wise, but perhaps a store?

I'm guessing they rented the cow from some advertising agency. They had a cow just like that at the ice cream place just across the street from where I work. It was really creeping me out. I'm glad it lasted only a few days otherwise I'd have probably freaked out.

Hahaha, yeah that's the place. That roof would be fairly easy to get onto as well, wouldn't it? I think it only comes a few feet off the ground. It'll be quite a steep slope, though.

I hope its a move by a Meijer outfit... even if it is Purple Cow. It's still another move by Meijer. It looks as if it could be a continual interest in the area. Just look at the location and it makes perfect sense. I just don't know why an ice creme shop would need to hire a pretty high caliber PR group to drum up word.
