General idea of Walmart is negative---negative idea of paint.
Focus on the simplicity aspect that Glidden at Walmart can provide.
Make Walmart’s DIY/Home Improvement sections look like place that is credible.
Make sure the employees are chalked full of knowledge- Baby boomers will not buy paint from a young sales person with no information on Glidden paint because it is hard enough for a baby boomer to trust a young employee.
Focus on media outlets of newspaper, magazines, and TV to draw them interact then in-store advertising will be key. UNCOVERING THE TARGET MARKET:

Mainly smaller, upgrade or replacements projects
Needs change as people age Symbolic Needs: Host for multiple generations
Repainting a room for the pregnant daughter who's moving back in.
"Keeping up with the Joneses'" or updating just to uphold a sense of newness or change in their life.
Redoing a room into a fitness room for their "Get into shape" resolution. Experiential Needs: Draws them in via the media outlets of TV, newspapers, and magazines.
Offer coupons and special promos to get these older couples to experiment with the brand.
Have to have a good reason to go and test it out. “The most important thing to remember about Boomers is that they are rule breakers. Individuality over conformity is a consistent Boomer pattern. They always have done it differently than the way it was done before, and as they get older, they will continue to demand products that fit their individuality.”
