Report: Circuit City Testing New Concept Stores Dubbed ‘The City’

BY CSA STAFF

Richmond, Va., Circuit City Stores is testing new concept stores dubbed “The City,” with a new look and interactive layout, according to the Associated Press.

Spokeswoman Jackie Foreman said the stores include different fixtures and lighting, a refined product selection and a more interactive experience.

In June, Circuit City opened a relocated store in Norfolk, Va., which bears the new name on the company’s signature red and silver circular logo. The conversion of a store in the company’s headquarters of Richmond will open in time for the holidays.

The new stores are part of the 60 to 65 domestic stores the company plans to open during the fiscal year, Foreman said, with a mixture of both traditional-size and smaller-scale stores. The company has said half of the additions will replace current stores. It plans to open 75 to 100 new stores in fiscal 2009.

LONDON Tesco has jumped on the social networking bandwagon with the launch of “fashionfile,” an online community that enables fashionistas to customize, store and share fashion tips with others.

According to reports, the actual social networking aspect of the program will be available in late November, when users will be able to share tips with friends via the site. Until then, users can upload pictures and information to their personal fashionfile page, which they can view on demand.

In order to promote its new fashion initiative, Tesco is offering vouchers to be used in stores to those who sign up for the program and recommend it to their friends.
