gauborn to shop

Recent studies have found that shoppers who spend time in retail shopping malls enjoy shopping more and are more likely to make impulse purchases than those who shop online. The right advertising for shopping malls and the stores within can bring those shoppers back and remind them how much they enjoy the "mall" experience.

Shopping at a mall is more than just a trip to pick up an item or two; it is an experience that can be enjoyed by everyone from families to couples and groups of people. There are a large number of retailers whose locations exist almost exclusively within larger malls. The challenge for these stores is letting customers know that they are out there and that they offer products and services that local customers would be interested in.

A growing number of Gautrain commuters are utilising the service at off-peak periods to travel to and from large, experiential shopping malls, previously not accessible to them. They're making a meal of it...without having to worry about congested traffic routes!

With consumers finding easier ways to get their stuff, shopping malls have become less about shopping and more about entertainment.
With apps and technology to serve up deals to customers the minute they step through the doors, malls are firmly embracing the smart phone crowd.
