Cheap Ass: Carmichael Lynch

cheap.jpg

We hear that… Carmichael Lynch in Minneapolis had no holiday party, is open this week for the first time ever and seems to be pinching many a penny. In the email chain below, the director of finance, John Green, informs employees that if you want a 2008 calendar, you gotta pay for it out of pocket. What? You guys nix the Staples account?

The shop recently released a dark themed, holiday spot for their client Harley Davidson. They won Subaru and lost Porsche this year. Yes, Minneapolis as a whole is having a tough year, but really – what’s with the Scrooge like behavior?

If you purchase a calendar, it is not a reimbursable expense. Sorry for any confusion.

For those of you who are still unaware, CL will not be ordering “08” calendars this year. Each person is responsible for getting his or her own calendar if you want one. Go on line or maybe Target.
