Tommy Bahama prepares to open Fifth Ave. flagship

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — Tommy Bahama Group Inc. said Thursday its first Tommy Bahama global flagship store will open on Nov. 17 at 551 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

The 5,000-sq.-ft. store, coined “Manhattan Island,” is the largest Tommy Bahama retail location worldwide and features an expanded merchandise collection, a 1,300-sq.-ft. Marlin Bar – the only freestanding bar between the Empire State Building and Central Park – and a 6,700-sq.-ft. restaurant on the second floor. The restaurant opening has been delayed to December due to problems caused by Hurricane Sandy.

"It took us a long time to find the right space, but we are confident that this is the perfect location for us — New York’s Fifth Avenue is the epicenter of luxury, style and the heart of Mid-town Manhattan," said Terry Pillow, CEO, Tommy Bahama.

Located in the circa 1927 Fred F. French Building, the Tommy Bahama store was designed by Michael Neumann Architecture.

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.
