You simply can’t overlook this Giant Gumball Machine as display and attention compeller, nor the value of 15 gumboils for a dollar. But don’t be misled by the giant Gumballs in the oversize gumboil machine dome. Yours are shown to scale below and just a bit smaller. See that you select your treasures from the encircling bulk bins. HHow much more fun if your purchase could have cascaded from the machine itself? Browse and consider the proposition with the gallery of images. Seen at Party City.
A vibrant red wall is the backdrop for a double-bank of Gumball Machines, insuring the offer is not missed even at a distance. Oversize machines add to the attention compelling nature by towering over standard units along the bottom row. See that oversize Gumball offerings are 75c but offer more and are positioned more prominently for a better shot at sales. Or maybe the small units are actually designed to appeal more to smaller customers. See in various views in the gallery of images.
Nowadays we have selfies. In the good old days, tricky trending photography was accomplished via “head-in-hole” shots with the background automatically dubbed in. The technique can still be used … just easier to accomplish with a partner than selfie-stick. Step through the gallery of #GetClassed mall promotion images.
#GetClassed might work but how about #GetClassy as a promotional Hashtag? Maybe it was taken, but then are the two so similar as to confuse the promotion? I found the latter online, but not the former. So additional Social Media support is needed in any event. Lucky my role is to report the in-Mall physicality of the campaign and not insure online functionality. Step through the gallery of images to see my part and the vertical signs and grouped display. Seen at the Viewmont Mall, Scranton PA.
This Steinway sells itself without even the need for music r a Spokesmodel. Roping off the area implies exclusivity (and keeps away playful kids). An area rug and furnishings communicate home and comfort. And a modern branded color swirl as backdrop takes any stodginess out of the thought of a Grand Piano. I am sure an expert pianist plays during peak periods to attract attention even from a distance and demonstrate a few piano “licks.” But this merchandising works even in complete silence. Use the thumbnail and gallery to inspect the scene.
Trust Humankind to not only be creative with the concept of fountain coin tosses for wishing, but the challenge of the coin toss from upper levels of the Mall. I’m pretty sure I could hit the fountain reliably, but still best either not to try, or yell “Fore” “Heads Up” or “Incoming” if you do. Seen at The Mall at Shorthills, Catham, NJ.
I hate to call this a Strip Mall for it was far, far better looking and tenanted than almost any. Good examples being the Jeweler and brick-oven-coal-fired Pizzeria in the background (some swear by the technique, see John’s of Bleecker Street, Manhattan). Abstract art created from industrial gear trains hint that this region was one industrial and mining heartland, but no more. A nice tip-of-the-hat to the past and up cycling of the gear set. If you drove past today, you would have little idea of the smokestacks that might have clustered here 150 years ago.
Entertaining all age groups is important for Mall success. Here Mall Zoo Rides expand to take over a storefront for Skate-Rink-like ride space, but expand rules of use. The more Mall offerings and opportunities, the more it seems the need for regulation. See the thumbnail and gallery of photos for broader coverage of this entertainment, expanding from the Mall Concourse into a Storefront of its own..
As an owner of better, upscale malls, Simon Properties® (range #1 in the USA) takes care of customer on-site iDevice charging needs with Logo branded Charging Stations like this. This one face alone offers 4 USB Ports and 3 standard three-prong grounded electrical outlets to satisfy any charging need. Double the capacity by adding in the opposite face and you have plenty of support even during charge-station rush hours. Seen outfitting the Mall Concourse seating area. Check the thumbnail for broader view.
Expanding upon the review of this Zoo Ride’s Kiosk I lay in wait to capture the fun of the ride just for you. These girls sure took the $10 for 20 Minute ride offer for the buzzed and straffed the Mall concourse repeatedly from all directions. I was not there for ride end, but assume an alarm begins to rindg when it is time to return the stuffed animal cart. I can’t imagine it just shutting down and leaving the rider stranded or pushing the animal home.
Only one other time have I seen an amusement like this at the Mills at Jersey Gardens, this seen at the Wyoming Valley Mall, Pennsylvania. This Zoo Rides Kiosk offers family fun for only $7 for 10 minutes, $10 for 20 minutes. Making sure kids enjoy the Mall makes them eager to come on their parents shopping trips … with the family staying longer and spending more. CLICK the gallery for various views of the Kiosk and offerings.
