What a great name for a coffee shop. It is easy to get carried away with the efforts and creativity of "branding" ... but a strong name with plenty of room for interpretation goes a long way. Oh, and I presume they make great coffee?

Hi Russell,
What kind of music does Love Save the Day carry? (I'm asking because the expression has been part of underground house and disco culture for a long time.)
"Love Saves the Day" is also the title of one of the definitive books of the disco decade, real disco, not the village people. highly recommended.

Brand links ups are def great ideas...but wasn't Fruitstock set up by innocent? And Run London by Nike? I'm liking the Nike iPod partnership.

Another example of Apple nesting well -- I-Pod and BMW Mini Cooper. The folk at Apple are just A-class Brand Stewards.

Love Saves the day is a wonderful place in a wonderful part of Manchester that oozes Mancunian charm and attitude in equal measure!

In answer to gavin, yes they do, and in answer to dino, Vox Pop, the record store which houses LSTD stocks a great selection of second hand (and some new) vinyl from soul, jazz, disco and house to folk, rock, indie and Madchester.

thanks nicholas,
sounds great, and just the kind of place i'd spend too much time and $$ in.

Aren't you describing a 'concession'? Like in a department store. Hive brand. Many brands under a useful umbrella. Very postmodern. And have you ever bought a walkman or a camera from one of those no-brand shops on Tottenham Court Road where every single salesman is his own company and he just rents space from the top guy? Not the same, I suppose. Not a brand in sight. And, actually, I think Apple is an awesome brand but the company's really quite old school in the way they armour the brand against messy cross-fertilisation. Control freaks. Is that the definition of brand steward? I wonder if a fortress brand like the iPod is a good model for the distributed future?
