The campaign features the headline "Give Them What They Want," reflecting the idea that Brookstone is a purveyor of things that people want.

The ads will appear in print and online media, including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and The campaign will also include in-store promotional material and public relations support via CKPR.
