I’m pretty excited about something that I wanted to share with Labelscar readers. We were recently featured in Retail Traffic Magazine in Mike Janssen’s article about the phenomenon of mall fan blogs, along with some of our friends such as Keith Milford at MallsofAmerica and Scott Parsons at BIGMallRat. It’s our first–and hopefully not last!–bit of press.
And the icing on the cake is that Retail Traffic recently launched a blog of their own–“Retail Traffic Court,” penned by Retail Traffic editor-in-chief David Bodamer–and he links to the whole lot of us in the mall blogging community in his sidebar. It’s pretty cool to get such recognition from a mainstream publication targeted towards retailers and shopping center owners and developers across the country.
To those of you who’ve stumbled here as a result of the Retail Traffic Magazine article–welcome! We hope you’ll stay for awhile, and help contribute to the conversations that help piece together the history and future of North American retail. Labelscar is only six months old, but its continually-increasing-popularity (it says in the article that we have 400 unique visitors a day, but since I talked to Mike our numbers have increased to over 700 on many days) is a testament to just how much that people appreciate our country’s rich retail landscape. Oh, and Canada’s too.
You can read the full article here.
For some reason I can’t find it on the actual Retail Traffic site at the moment.
