The Connotation of “Exclusive”

Sorry for adding such a small post so quickly after the last one, but I just saw this brochure that said “Join the exclusive world of [insert names of big clothes chains]” and all I could think is “Why would anyone want an exclusive world?” Then it struck me that I get a very negative connotation of “exclusive” – to me it means “isolationist”, “biased”, “prejudiced”, it is related to the exclusive higher and richer classes that make life difficult and usually don’t work for change.

Does anybody else get this type of connotation, or is it just me?
