JLL: Shopping centers focus on digital media this holiday season

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Atlanta — Jones Lang LaSalle released a forecast suggesting that shopping centers will be pulling out all the digital stops this holiday season to engage and interact with consumers to influence purchasing decisions.

The firm, which manages nearly 100 million sq. ft. of retail space throughout the United States, predicts that holiday sales will increase approximately 4% in 2012 due to the on-going economic recovery, retailers’ engagement with customers and shopping centers’ ability to influence shoppers to buy locally. Its own marketing managers around the country will be leveraging digital media tools including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, text messaging and websites while also engaging shoppers with traditional marketing tactics including events, giveaways and community relations initiatives.

“As usual, the holiday season is a make or break time for retailers,” said Greg Maloney, CEO and president, Jones Lang LaSalle Retail. “It’s critical for shopping center teams to make centers a destination during the holiday season whether it’s through sales, events or giveaways. A large percentage of retailers’ revenues are made during the fourth quarter and we know much of that is generated Thanksgiving through Christmas.”

Shopping digital products is clearly the most trendy habit among customers around winter holidays. Even though there are still people who are interested in other things like Fleurs Noel for example (they are my favorite :D, the digital era has overtaken us and I guess that there is nothing much we can do about it because we are becoming more and more dependent on these products.

Foot Locker unveils new fitness concept store

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — Foot Locker announced Tuesday the introduction of SIX:02, an elevated retail concept featuring fitness apparel and athletic footwear for women.

The first three stores will open for the holiday season in Stamford Mall in Stamford, Conn., Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, N.J., and North Star Mall in San Antonio, Texas.

SIX:02’s concept is based on being the first-to-market design around a broad assortment of women’s athletic brands in an environment created specifically for that female customer, according to Foot Locker.

The store features dedicated fit zones and fitting lounge areas, as well as a service concept that features an on-premise consultative selling team.

“A woman’s day tends to be packed with work, family, and friends. She often finds a moment for herself at the gym, during a run, or at an early morning fitness class," said Stacy Cunningham, executive VP marketing at Foot Locker. "She deserves a place to find premium fitness and athletic gear that allows her to combine her personal style and versatility with performance features. We are excited to offer her that opportunity and experience at SIX:02."
