Awareness Building Campaign For Upscale Shopping Center

Riverside Square, an upscale shopping center in one of the most affluent counties in the nation, offers shoppers an experience that is anything but ordinary. Among the shopping center's 70 specialty stores are Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, the largest Pottery Barn in the country, Tiffany & Co., and many other top names in fashion and home style.

Riverside Square selected Caugherty Hahn Communications, Inc. in a multi-agency search to create and implement a communications campaign that includes marketing public relations, crisis communications, and community relations, while driving traffic to the shopping center.

One week after being retained, the terrorist events of September 11 occurred, prompting Caugherty Hahn Communications to devise a plan to cement the bonds between Riverside Square, its merchants, and the surrounding community.

Through the United We Stand Wall of Hope project, retail employees and shoppers were given an outlet to express their grief and patriotic sentiment, while rallying together as a community. Donations were collected for the American Red Cross, and a dozen community leaders were present to share their remembrances and hopes for the future.

During the holidays, the community once again came together at Riverside Square to support two local non-profit organizations. A blood drive in partnership with the Bergen Community Blood Center, a pledge made in September 2001, will once again reassert Riverside Square's place as a valuable corporate citizen, and contributing member of the community.

CHC has also positioned Riverside Square as a resource on trends in fashion, home decoration, and shopping, as well as the pulse of the community on topics ranging from "Blue Laws" to consumer confidence.

In less than five months, the shopping center has been featured on:

  • The front page of the Wall Street Journal's Marketplace Section
