“Convenience is key to successful holiday shopping whether you start early or late in the season. Research shows that 84% of shoppers agree that malls provide a convenient option to get a lot of shopping done in one trip,” said Cindy Rodenhizer, Mall Manager at Melbourne Square.
“We are offering extra holiday hours to meet our customers’ needs – from the person looking for the latest fashion and styles of the season to the family hunting for great deals to the last-minute shopper in search of the perfect gift.”
Shopper appreciation programs will take place throughout the holiday season and include:
• Holiday treats delivered by management staff and Guest Services
• A “roaming ambassador” who will be answering questions and distributing mall handheld directories along with holiday treats.
To provide gift-giving inspiration, Simon and Vogue Advertising have collaborated to produce the “Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide,” curated by Vogue’s Market Stylist, Cara Crowley, who has selected her favorite holiday products from retail brands available at Simon Malls, Premium Outlets and Mills.
These Gift Guides will be previewed as an insert in the December issue of Vogue, available on stands November 25.
