Brand Change

factual friday

Well known brands that originally sold something other than what they are famous for:

Nokia – were originally a paper mill

Gap – a record shop

Lamborghini – made tractors

Wrigley’s – sold soap and baking powder and gave the gum away as a freebie

Colgate – soap and candles

Avon – books (and like Wrigley’s gave the perfume away for free)

And our favourite – before getting into making computer games, Nintendo ran “love hotels”.

Yes, those rented by the hour!
