Letter to the Editor- I was perusing this months Lighting and Décor magazine when I stumbled across the consumer snapshot article on page 16. I was aghast to see who was in the spotlight. Gen Z, Millennials and Baby Boomers. Where is Gen X? I figured perhaps you had lumped us in with the Baby Boomers, but no. No mention of us anywhere. Instead you focused on Gen Z, which is my children's generation, and has about zero buying power, other than their parents, (Gen X). With 58% of Gen X owning homes and many of us getting ready for the nest to empty, I think it would have been more insightful to talk about marketing to us rather than a generation that is still in school.
