Today's shopping culture is turning the shopper into a zombie-and the thrill of the hunt into the robotic management of inventory. For millions of us, the sizzle of a daily shopping experience has devolved into a relentless acquisition of the okay, available, and cheap. Why are we willing to pay $3.50 for a latte at Starbucks, but bristle at a 10-cent increase in the price of toothpaste? Why do we drive miles out of our way to buy a bag of 100 razor blades for 50-cents less than at our local store, and then spend $3.99 on a tub of pretzels that we don't need? We're wasting our time and money at the cost of our patience and good will. In Shopportunity!, marketing expert Kate Newlin looks behind the aisles of our best known retailers to reveal that the dopamine rush of getting a good deal is confusing shoppers' wants with their needs. Packed with perceptive reporting, Shopportunity! provides an insider's view of how marketers create a brand, and the overwhelming power of retailers to interfere with the transformational joys that great brands bring to our daily lives. It is time for shoppers to revolutionize their shopping experience and take the power away from retailers. Culminating in a Shopper's Bill of Rights, Shopportunity! will liberate shoppers-as well as the manufacturers and retailers who serve them-from the tyranny of the cheap
