Downtown Retailers Hitting the Streets
Downtown Retailers Hitting the Streets

Two downtown retailers are taking a new approach in advertising their businesses, LIVING MANNEQUINS in Lafayette Square. If you were in the area last Thursday afternoon, you may have noticed and asked yourself 'what is going on?'

Sasmita Batik Indonesia and J. Christian Fashion Boutique (both located in the Market Arcade Building) have teamed up together along with myself- Giovanni Centurione (Social Media Director and Event Coodinator) to promote their boutique shops to a new customer base with an 'in your face' promotion. The idea has worked! People stopped, asked questions, some did'nt realize the Market Arcade had retail inside or where it even was. Coupons for both stores were handed out and lots of photos were taken (as seen in this story).

Be on the look out for more 'Living Mannequins' to be on display during the noon hours downtown, Canalside, and during special events. Also, we don't want to be the only ones out there to do this. We are looking for other local boutique shops to join the action, dancers, artists (sketch, paint) musicians (violin, guitar, drums, etc.) to join us and create a cool new vibe to the downtown day scene.

Interested parties, please contact: Giovanni Centurione, Cell: 347-962-6162, email: g_centurione@yahoo.com
