Harrods in the early evening
Harrods in the early evening
Harrods is a high-end department store located on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, United Kingdom. The Harrods brand also applies to other enterprises undertaken by the Harrods group of companies including Harrods Bank, Harrods Estates, Harrods Aviation and Air Harrods, and Harrods Buenos Aires. The store occupies a .5-acre (2,000 m2) site and has over one million square feet (90,000 m2) of selling space in over 330 departments. The UK's second-biggest shop, Oxford Street's Selfridges, is a little over half the size with 540,000-square-foot (50,000 m2) of selling space.[1] The Harrods motto is Omnia Omnibus Ubique—All Things for All People, Everywhere. Several of its departments, including the seasonal Christmas department and the Food Hall, are world famous. Throughout its history, the store has changed hands several times. Most recently, on 8 May 2010, Mohamed Al-Fayed sold the store to Qatar Holdings for a sum of ?1.5 billion.[2] Fashion plate of 1909 shows upper-class Londoners walking in front of Harrods Harrods founder Charles Henry Harrod first set up shop in 1824,at the age of 25, south of the River Thames in Southwark, at 228, Borough High Street. He ran this business, variously listed as a Draper, or Mercer and Haberdasher, certainly until 1831.[3][4][5] During 1825 the business was listed as 'Harrod and Wicking, Linen Drapers, Retail',[6] but this partnership was dissolved at the end of that year.[7] His first grocery business appears to be as ‘Harrod & Co.Grocers’ at 163 Upper Whitecross Street, Clerkenwell, E.C.1., in 1832.[8] In 1834 in London's East End, he established a wholesale grocery in Stepney, at 4, Cable Street, with a special interest in tea. In 1849, to escape the vice of the inner city and to capitalise on trade to the Great Exhibition of 1851 in nearby Hyde Park, Harrod took over a small shop in the district of Knightsbridge, on the site of the current store. Beginning in a single room employing two assistants and a messenger boy, Harrod's son Charles Digby Harrod built the business into a thriving retail operation selling medicines, perfumes, stationery, fruit, and vegetables. Harrods rapidly expanded, acquired the adjoining buildings, and employed one hundred people by 1880. However, the store's booming fortunes were reversed in early December 1883, when it burnt to the ground. Remarkably, in view of this calamity, Charles Harrod fulfilled all of his commitments to his customers to make Christmas deliveries that year—and made a record profit in the process. In short order, a new building was raised on the same site, and soon Harrods extended credit for the first time to its best customers, among them Oscar Wilde, legendary actors Lillie Langtry and Ellen Terry, Noel Coward, Sigmund Freud, A. A. Milne, and many members of the British Royal Family. On Wednesday, 16 November 1898, Harrods debuted England's first "moving staircase" (escalator) in their Brompton road stores; the device was actually a woven leather conveyor belt-like unit with a mahogany and "silver plate-glass" balustrade.[9] Nervous customers were offered brandy at the top to revive them after their 'ordeal'. The department store was purchased by the Fayed brothers in 1985. Source: wikipedia.com
Pepsi’s success in China 1
Pepsi’s success in China 1
Pepsi China: no place left to hide There is no bigger market than China. When Richard Lee -former vice president of Pepsi China, whom we spoke with a few months ago in New York- was given the task of increasing the famous cola drink’s presence in the world’s most populous nation, he knew he needed to go big. For Lee, who is now Pepsi International’s vice president of colas, this involved mapping out a 10-year branding strategy which has seen the company’s market share more than double in China. A pretty cool story, if you ask me. See and judge for yourself though… Whereas the evolution of Pepsi’s China strategy involved numerous campaigns and initiatives, Pepsi’s core values remain the same. One of them is Omnipresent Exposure, making sure there is no place left to hide. The Hong Kong International Film Festival, China’s equivalent of the Oscars, is one of the country’s best-watched and most talked-about high-profile events. Instead of having the stars walk the traditional red carpet, however, Pepsi sponsored the event and had the country’s A-List celebs walk a Pepsi-blue carpet, in order to create a huge buzz. Which it did. It’s an example of how Pepsi works to permeate the brand into the daily lives of consumers. Rather than simply running print and TV ads, the company works to create a “theatrical” brand experience. Other devices Pepsi has used in the past include sponsorship of the Pepsi music chart, a Pepsi music-star search competition and Pepsi 5x5 soccer teams. The company also works to develop brand cross-overs. It sponsors a sizable part of Shanghai’s wax world Madame Tussaud, surrounding the life-like statues of Chinese idols Louis Koo Tin Lok and Jolin Tsai with a fitting Pepsi backdrop. Pepsi caused quite a stir by putting its fizzy touch to the country’s first vertical credit card, for example. As a part of the 2007 Choreography campaign, the China Merchant Bank’s credit card featured several blue-themed designs that extended to hipped-up Pepsi packaging and a highly popular line of clothing by Kappa Sports Fashion. How about leaving no place left to hide?
