Westchester’s Ridge Hill, Yonkers, N.Y.

BY CSA STAFF

When Westchester’s Ridge Hill launches its grand-opening festivities over the four-day period from Oct. 20 to 23, it will be celebrating not only the introduction of a one-of-a-kind shopping destination for New Yorkers, but also a series of market debuts for the area.

Located in Yonkers, Westchester’s Ridge Hill is the New York metropolitan area’s largest mixed-use outdoor shopping center, spanning more than 81 acres and including 1.3 million sq. ft. at full build-out. It features a 50,000-sq.-ft. Whole Foods Market, New York State’s first Yard House, and The Cheesecake Factory, plus national retailers such as L.L. Bean, H&M, Old Navy, Sephora, Orvis, Gap and Desigual — all slated to open their doors this month, with more new store openings to follow in November and December.

On Oct. 20, Yonkers’ Mayor Philip A. Amicone will greet the crowd alongside property developers Forest City Ratner Cos. chairman and CEO Bruce C. Ratner, James A. Ratner, chairman and CEO of Forest City Commercial Group and Andy Silberfein, executive VP and director of retail and finance for FCRC. Other attendees will include city and county officials as well as the project’s architects, who have worked for years to bring Ridge Hill to fruition.

“This is an exciting opportunity for not only Westchester but the entire tri-state area and we are eagerly anticipating celebrating this occasion with the vibrant Yonkers community,” said Bruce Ratner. “We have great brands on board and our retailers are thrilled to be associated with the dynamic Ridge Hill project.”

Earlier this year, Ridge Hill opened National Amusements’ Cinema de Lux – a 12-screen movie theater featuring a restaurant, bar and children’s playroom – as well as REI and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

In addition, Westmed Medical Group recently opened an 84,000-sq.-ft. medical facility; Sur la Table and Charming Charlie are slated to open in early November. Republic of Couture and Guitar Center are under construction and will open in the near future.

In March 2012, Lord & Taylor is expected to open an 80,000-sq.-ft. location to anchor Westchester’s Ridge Hill – making it the first new, full-line Lord & Taylor since its landmark mall store opened in Alexandria, Va. in 2001.

LA Fitness, Texas de Brazil, Brio Tuscan Grille, and Cuban eatery Havana Central – the first outside Manhattan – are also expected to be rolled out in early 2012.

Ridge Hill is also expected to provide a major boon to the local economy, adding an anticipated 4,000 full-time jobs, 5,500 construction jobs once fully built and generating estimated annual sales tax revenue of $24.2 million. “This project will serve to invigorate the greater Westchester area bringing local jobs and tax revenue at a time when they are greatly needed,” said Andy Silberfein.

CVS/pharmacy offers free gift cards promotion for ExtraCare Rewards members

BY CSA STAFF

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — In an effort to reward loyal shoppers, CVS/pharmacy has created a new promotion that allows members of its ExtraCare Rewards program to earn multiple free gift cards by shopping for essentials at more than 7,200 locations nationwide.

The new promotion began Oct.16 and will run through Dec. 25. Members of CVS/pharmacy’s ExtraCare Rewards program can earn $10 gift cards to Macy’s, Gap, Applebee’s, Shell Stations, American Express, Barnes & Noble or CVS/pharmacy every week by spending $30 on specially marked items found in the weekly CVS/pharmacy circular.

Customers can find the qualifying products on the front and back pages each week in the CVS/pharmacy circular beginning Oct. 16, which are accessible in-store, online and on Facebook. All qualifying products will be marked as part of the "Earn Free Gift Cards" promotion to make them easily identifiable. Eligible products will range from health and beauty items, to groceries and snacks, household needs, toys and electronics. Products included in the promotion will change each week.

Once ExtraCare customers reach the $30 required purchase threshold in the weeklong period, a special coupon will print on their receipt that can be redeemed immediately in-store for a $10 gift card. If customers prefer to wait to redeem their coupon they have up to 30 days to do so. Shoppers also will have the opportunity to take advantage of the deal every week, with new products in the weekly circular. However, there is no carry-over balance to the next week, since the specially marked products may change. Customers also will be able to earn up to five gift cards per week by making the qualifying $30 purchases (one $10 gift card is earned for each qualifying $30 purchase). There is a limit of five redemptions per week for each ExtraCare member.
