Local marketing

Local marketing involves tailoring brands and promotions to the needs and wants of local customer groups-cities, neighborhoods, and even specific stores. For example, Wal-Mart customizes its merchandise store by store to meet the needs of local shoppers. The retailer’s store designers create each new store’s format according to neighborhood characteristics-stores near office parks; for instance, contain prominent islands featuring ready-made meals for busy workers.
