Gossau, Switzerland, 2016-Aug-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Vom 1. bis 3. September feiert die Migros Flawil ihr 55-Jahr-Jubiläum. Kundinnen und Kunden profitieren von zahlreichen attraktiven Angeboten.

Seit 55 Jahren begrüsst die Migros ihre Kundschaft in der Filiale Flawil. Das heutige Team umfasst 38 Personen. Das vergangene Jahr stand für Marktleiter Max Staub und seine Mitarbeitenden vor allem im Zeichen der umfassenden Sanierung des Standorts: „Es war eine intensive Zeit. Umso mehr freuen wir uns heute gemeinsam mit den Partnergeschäften und unseren Kundinnen und Kunden über ein frisch renoviertes Center sowie über eine sehr moderne und übersichtliche Filiale.“

Seit der Gesamteröffnung Ende Oktober 2015 sorgt der modernisierte Migros Supermarkt an der Magdenauerstrasse für ein neues Einkaufserlebnis. Eine grosszügige Frischeabteilung, fachkundige Beratung an der Frischfleischtheke, ofenfrisches Brot bis Ladenschluss, Möglichkeit zum Subito Self Scanning oder neue Partnergeschäfte im Zentrum – es gibt viele Gründe, die für einen Besuch sprechen.
Erfahrene Führungskraft

Marktleiter Max Staub startete seine Karriere bei der Migros Genossenschaft Ostschweiz mit der Ausbildung zum Detailhandelsangestellten. Nach seiner Lehre führte er den avec.-Convenience-Shop in Bad Ragaz, bevor es ihn wieder zum orangen M zurückzog. Innerhalb der Migros sammelte der 43-Jährige danach in verschiedenen Positionen Berufserfahrung, bis er im Frühjahr 2012 die Leitung des Migros Supermarktes Flawil übernahm. Seine Freizeit verbringt der vierfache Familienvater am liebsten im Kreise seiner Familie. Daneben spielt er Trompete und betreibt gerne Sport.

MINI-MIGROS: DER GRÖSSTE “VERKÄUFERLILADEN” DER SCHWEIZ

MINI-MIGROS: DER GRÖSSTE "VERKÄUFERLILADEN" DER SCHWEIZ
MINI-MIGROS: DER GRÖSSTE “VERKÄUFERLILADEN” DER SCHWEIZ

 

Zurich, Switzerland, 2016-Aug-24 — /EPR Retail News/ —  Die Migros weiht im Glattzentrum ihre erste Spielfiliale ein. Auf über 100 Quadratmetern können Kinder vom 29. August bis zum 10. September 2016 „Verkäuferlis“ spielen. Danach reist die mobile Mini-Migros von einem Einkaufszentrum zum nächsten. Zusätzlich wird sie im Herbst 2016 an der Olma zu finden sein.

So realitätsnah konnten die Schweizer Kinder noch nie „Verkäuferlis“ spielen. In der Spielfiliale gestalten sie ihre eigene Welt und  schlüpfen wahlweise in die Rolle einer Filialmitarbeiterin, eines Kunden oder eines Logistikers. „Für einmal können die Kleinen alles tun, worauf sie Lust haben: Produkte transportieren und einräumen, mit dem Einkaufswägeli herumrennen oder alle Tasten auf der Kasse drücken“, sagt Hansueli Siber, Leiter Marketing Migros.

Die Migros hat das Konzept für die Mini-Migros gemeinsam mit Marius Tschirky von der Agentur Hotz’n’Plotz entwickelt. Der erfahrene Kindergartenlehrer ist vor allem bekannt, weil er mit der Band für Kinder „Marius und die Jagdkapelle“ auch als Musiker erfolgreich ist. „Es war uns wichtig, dass die Kinder frei spielen. Ohne Anleitungen und Animationen haben sie nicht nur mehr Spass, sondern lernen auch viel  – zum Beispiel beim Zählen, Stapeln, Tauschen und Verhandeln“, erklärt Tschirky.

Der Spielbereich ist über 100 Quadratmeter gross. In den Regalen sind Spielprodukte wie Blévita, Aproz-Mineralwasser oder Risoletto zu finden, die original verpackt sind. Frische Artikel wie Äpfel, Salat oder Brot sind aus Plastik nachgestaltet. Wie die echte Migros verfügt auch die Mini-Migros über eigene Industrie-Betriebe, welche die Filiale mit Produkten beliefern.

Die einzigen Erwachsenen im Laden verfügen über pädagogische Erfahrung und nehmen die Rolle des „Kundendienst-Mitarbeiters“ und des „Filialleiters“ ein. Beim „Kundendienst“ erhalten alle Kinder ein eigenes Portemonnaie, gefüllt mit einer Cumulus-Spielkarte und Lilibiggs-Spielgeld. Eltern, Grosseltern oder der Götti bleiben draussen, für sie gibt es neben dem Eingang Sitzgelegenheiten. Die Wände um die Kinderfiliale sind auf drei Seiten aus Plexiglas, deshalb kann man den Kindern beim Spielen zusehen.

Alle Kinder im Alter zwischen 4 und 12 Jahren sind willkommen. Der Eintritt ist gratis, es braucht keine Voranmeldung. Weitere Infos und Daten finden Sie mit diesem Link: www.vonuns-vonhier.ch/mini-migros

Starbucks Korea hosted 2nd annual Barista Championship for Partners with Disabilities

Seattle, 2016-Aug-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Learning that she was the winner of Starbucks Korea’s Barista Championship for Partners with Disabilities was a surprise for Banny M.H. Choi.

“When I found out about this championship, I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but I decided to challenge myself,” said Choi, who has a hearing loss. “When they announced that I was the winner I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t expect to earn first prize because I was so nervous.”

Excelling in the competition was a source of pride for Choi.

“I have always tried my best to eliminate prejudice about the disabled,” Choi said. “After winning this competition, I am confident that I can do anything regardless of my disability.”

Starbucks Korea hosted the championship for the second consecutive year, as a way to recognize partners (employees) with disabilities. Choi and the remaining nine finalists were selected to participate based on recommendations from their district managers.

During the competition, they were judged by three partners from the Starbucks Coffee Leadership and Operations Service Team on beverage quality, speed of service, cleanliness and latte art. As the victor, Choi received a trophy and a Starbucks Card loaded with 100,000 Korean Won (approximately USD$90.00).

“We take pride in the fact that Starbucks is a welcoming workplace for everyone,” said S.K. Lee, president, Starbucks Coffee Korea. “We hope to demonstrate the talents of all our baristas and change perceptions about the abilities of people with disabilities.”

The company’s effort to hire and train people with disabilities has not gone unnoticed. In April, Starbucks Korea received the presidential award from the Korea Employment Agency for the Disabled and the Ministry of Employment and Labor.

“This year’s finalists had very impressive skills, which made it difficult to select one winner,” said Lee. “Next year, we will offer a competition in each market in the China and Asia Pacific region to recognize more of our partners.”

Fred unveils new 8°0 Collection to celebrate eight decades of contemporary jewelry creations

Fred unveils new 8°0 Collection to celebrate eight decades of contemporary jewelry creations

 

PARIS, 2016-Aug-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Fred is celebrating eight decades of contemporary jewelry creations this year and has unveiled the new 8°0 Collection. Evoking the theme of luck, the collection expresses the unique Fred spirit with emblematic freedom and simplicity.

Fred Samuel founded his eponymous jewelry house in 1936, inventing a new way to wear jewelry. With modern and timeless lines, graphic inspirations and plays of elegant colors, Fred Samuel brought freedom and simplicity to jewelry, designing signature pieces that have become icons.

Created by the jeweler’s eldest son in 1966, the audacious Force 10 bracelet is a perfect example. With braided steel cables and a clasp inspired by a sailing shackle, the bracelet is popular among women and men alike, marking the first casual chic jewelry. Another emblematic piece is the Pain de Sucre ring, introduced in 2013. The stones of the ring can be interchanged to suit any mood, with multiple colors that evoke the Latin American origins of the founder.

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the House, Fred has created the 8°0 collection, based on the theme of luck. Designed as a lucky charm, the bracelet graces the wrist with a generously curved knot and a gold clasp attached to a simple leather cable. The sideways figure 8 invites a host of different interpretations, from a lucky number to a metaphor for the infinity symbol.

The launch of the collection is accompanied by a campaign created by artist Liu Bolin, illustrating four facets of luck: Love, Success, Vitality and Freedom. In four posters, four videos and a film, the artist proposes his personal definition of luck.

The 8°0 bracelet expresses universality, freedom of expression and relaxed chic, perfectly capturing the vision behind Fred’s eight decades of creativity.
